About David Sheehan's Movie Magic

David Sheehan is Hollywood's pre-eminent movie reviewer and movie star interviewer–and the name and face behind Hollywood Close-Ups. After 30 years of doing daily newscasts on the air at NBC-TV and CBS-TV, Sheehan is now writing, producing and hosting a new series of his popular nationally syndicated television specials about movies and movie stars.

Hollywood Close-Ups is one of Hollywood's premier production and syndication companies, producing and distributing national television specials ("Summer Movie Magic", "Academy Awards Preview", "Holiday Movie Magic", and "Hollywood Icons") broadcast to over 85% of the U.S., plus 18 foreign countries. The shows spotlight the hottest new movies, Oscar worthy movies, and the movie stars that make these movies magical.

At its heart, this Hollywood Close-Ups success is the story of one man's entrepreneurial triumph, with enormous help from the teamwork of a terrific staff of 8 (known as the heavy-hitting 8-ballers), led by the company’s one-two punch — Sheehan’s 25-year friend and colleague, editor par excellence and audio mixing artist John F. Diamond, along with HCU’s super-salesman director of distribution and president of syndication Jim LeFave; aided and abetted by longtime troubleshooter executive producer Jeff Jacobs and jack-of-all-computer-trades executive producer Mark Braverman, along with top notch line producer Cristi Jessee, director of promotion and publicity Stacia Caggiano, the innovative talent of Internet producer Geno Caggiano and master of syndication coordinator Dana Brown. Hollywood Close-Ups maintains its corporate headquarters in Marina del Rey, California and its post production facilities in the Hollywood Hills.
