John Wells to talk about LAPD in annual awards banquet to be held today at the Beverly Hills Hotel  
In its 34th year of existence, the Humanitas Prize will soon embark on an ambitious new program of script development, philanthropic partnerships and, if all goes right, actual production.
"There was a very specific objective in the establishment of the organization, and it was not simply to give away some cash every year," says "ER" and "The West Wing" executive producer John Wells, who accepted the position of Humanitas president less than a month ago. (Acting president Father Frank Desiderio is being promoted to chairman of the board, and Cathleen Young continues as executive director.)

Beyond that, there are plans for a Humanitas Presents franchise to produce original material and serve as a de facto "Good Housekeeping Seal" for quality broadcast and cable TV entertainment. Wells, who is now working on a new show for NBC titled "LAPD," promises details at the annual awards banquet, to be held today at the Beverly Hills Hotel, which marks both a calendar and venue change.
