The Price Is Right & Let’s Make A Deal Name New EPs & Showrunners


Fremantle has tapped Evelyn Warfel for the role of executive producer and showrunner of The Price Is Right, with John Quinn appointed to the same position on Let’s Make A Deal.

Warfel is the first woman to hold this position in the history of The Price Is Right, network television’s number-one-rated daytime series and the longest-running game show in TV history. She has been with Fremantle for the past ten years, most recently serving as the show’s co-executive producer. During her tenure on The Price Is Right, the series has won three Daytime Emmy Awards, along with a total of seven nominations. Warfel has an extensive game-show background, having produced more than a dozen titles and previously serving as a supervising producer on Let’s Make A Deal.

Leading the charge on the Daytime Emmy-winning Let’s Make A Deal will be veteran game-show producer John Quinn. Quinn has worked at Fremantle for the past six years, originally coming on board as an executive producer on Celebrity Name Game. He also worked as an executive producer on Match Game and is currently serving as both an executive producer and showrunner on the return of the classic game show Press Your Luck on ABC.

In addition to Warfel rising to the helm of The Price Is Right, Adam Sandler has been named the show’s new co-executive producer. Sandler has spent the past 25 years with the series, serving as the show’s director for the past six, and in numerous producing roles prior to then. Having won two Daytime Emmy Awards in the category of Outstanding Directing in a Game Show, Sandler will continue on in this role, in addition to now serving as the show’s co-EP.

Both The Price Is Right and Let’s Make A Deal are produced by Fremantle and will be premiering their 48th and 11th seasons, respectively, this fall on CBS. The Price Is Right is broadcast weekdays at 11 a.m., with Let’s Make A Deal also airing on weekdays.

“We are fortunate to have such creative and dedicated talent at the company,” said Jennifer Mullin, CEO of Fremantle. “When looking to fill these roles, we didn’t need to go far. Evelyn and John have been longtime valued members of our team and I can’t wait to see how they will flourish in their new roles.”
