Bidding War Over Dick Clark Productions?

Todd Morley’s G2 Investment Group is joining the bidding for TV production company Dick Clark Productions. Morley, a co-founder of Guggenheim Partners before setting up his current rival shop in 2009, is drafting former Condé Nast sales chief Richard “Mad Dog” Beckman to run DCP if it wins the bidding battle for the production company that owns The Golden Globes, So You Think You Can Dance and New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, according to sources close to the bidding.
