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.

Jeff Yarbrough of Keller Williams Realty in Beverly Hills represented Poul in both transactions. Tom Davila and Kennon Earl of the same office represented the buyer of Poul's house. John Michael Iglar of Teles Properties had the listing on the house Poul bought.
