Alan Poul, executive producer of "The Newsroom," has parted with his house in the Hollywood Hills for $993,000 and purchased another one nearby.
Poul's Midcentury Modern-style home sold for more than the asking price of $989,000. The remodeled house features city and mountain views, built-in art and bookshelves, a fireplace, French-style doors, a balcony, three bedrooms, three bathrooms and 1,784 square feet of living space. He paid $750,000 for the property in 2002, public records show.
He purchased a Craftsman built in 1918 for about $1.43 million. The more than 2,700-square-foot house features a front porch, a stone fireplace, a built-in china cabinet, four bedrooms and four bathrooms. There is a swimming pool, a spa and an outdoor living area.
Poul, 58, also has been a producer and director for "Six Feet Under" (2001-05) and "Swingtown" (2008). HBO's "The Newsroom" has been renewed for a second season.
