Sci Fi Promotes Howe to President

Hammer Also to Retain President Title

Linda Moss -- Multichannel News, 1/16/2008 6:38:00 AM

Dave Howe has been named president of Sci Fi Channel, officials said Wednesday.

Previously, Howe held the title of Sci Fi general manager and executive vice president. But in an unusual situation, Howe’s boss, Bonnie Hammer, will retain her titles of president of both USA Network and Sci Fi Channel, although Howe will now be running Sci Fi and its original programming unit will now report to him, not Hammer.

Howe will oversee original development, programming and marketing, global brand strategy and market development, strategic planning, Sci Fi digital (, Sci Fi Pulse,, Sci Fi Magazine, media relations and Sci Fi’s recently launched public-affairs initiative, “Visions for Tomorrow.”

Close Up: Andee Frizell

January 15, 2008 (Actors)

Andee Frizzell first appeared in the Stargate Atlantis’ pilot, ‘Rising’ as the Wraith queen, and has since played numerous incarnations of the alien matriarchs. Having worked in prosthetics before, Frizzell was a perfect choice for the role, and has become an invaluable part of the cast.

‘Spoils Of War’ gave viewers a big insight into the Wraith - particularly regarding how they reproduce. It also featured a significant role for Frizzell. One of the most striking aspects of the Wraith queens – besides their physical appearance – are their costumes. For ‘Spoils Of War’, the queen’s outfit would have to link directly into the surrounding set pieces, and costume designer Valerie Halverson worked closely with production designer James Robbins to create the finished article.
