Summary
A novel of interconnected short stories follows the career of television programming manager Steve Lane as he negotiates the industry's maze of power brokers (view table of contents)
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Veteran Hollywood entertainment mogul David Levy, creator and/or originator of such shows as The Addams Family, Name That Tune, Bonanza, and The Bob Newhart Show, knows the world of big business better than anyone, and has seen the struggle for power that breaks and makes careers in the blink of an eye.

A former presidential speech writer, producer for CBS, and programmer for NBC, Levy deftly pulls back the curtain on seedy, cutthroat corporate America in Executive Jungle, an autobiographical novel of interrelated stories about a Madison Avenue advertising agency. It centers on the figures who struggle to get to the top of the Otis & Meade agency, run stealthily yet firmly by aging chief James Hornwell. Motivated by their own insatiable greed and need for recognition Hornwell's shining stars find themselves in an endless struggle for survival, battling friends, enemies, and even themselves, while forming alliances that will end in honor or dishonor.

Sure to raise an eyebrow or two in the Hollywood and New York scenes, the ten suspenseful, spicy, and revealing segments that form this novel offer a fictionalized who's-who of powerbrokers network presidents, producers, writers, and executives populating the business for forty years.
