not only need each other, but much of the work of managers and of culture creators is cultural and economic at the same time. Indeed, cultural and economic concerns are not necessarily different, but in the context of media work rather must be seen as constituent material practice.3 This chapter, together with chapters 3 and 4, addresses the creative auton- omy of cultural creators within the constituent material practice of making Star Trek television.

bankrupt? Aylesworth had nothing to do with the hiring of David O. Selznick, who replaced William LeBaron at the Gower Street studio. Sarnoff made this brilliant decision, which quickly led to better pictures and the beginnings of a formidable stock company, featuring Katharine Hepburn, Fred Astaire, and others.

vice president in charge of the stu- dio, but this did not mean he intended to make crucial production decisions for long. The leaders of the “new RKO” promised to bring a top executive producer on board quickly. Among the possibilities mentioned were Sol Siegel, Pandro Berman, William Perlberg, William Dozier, and, of course, Jerry Wald. Rumors abounded concerning the future of the organization.
