Robert Halmi Jr. Out At RHI; Robert Sr. Stays

The made-for-TV movie and miniseries production business that Robert Halmi Jr. ran at RHI Entertainment became a Perils of Pauline story as reality TV filled much of the time that used to be devoted to family shows. Halmi sold RHI to Hallmark in 1994 and bought it back in 2006. But he took on too much debt. RHI filed for bankruptcy protection late last year, and emerged from that process in March.
