Robert A. Halmi

This son of the celebrated TV mogul Robert Halmi Sr. is a leading executive and producer in his own right. With a Harvard MBA on his resume, Robert Halmi Jr worked as a professional photographer before entering the family business, Robert Halmi Productions, in 1980 as an "assistant to the producer" (his father) on "A Private Battle" (CBS, 1980), a telefilm about writer Cornelius Ryan. This was the kind of high-minded entertainment with which father and son would often be associated. An immediate success, he quickly climbed the ranks to become president and CEO of RHI Entertainment, which he co-founded in 1984.
