Longtime TV business affairs executive Beverly Nix-Meier has died after a year-long battle with cancer. She was 59.

Nix-Meier, who passed away May 12 at her home in Chapel Hill, N.C, was a well-liked dealmaker with deep ties in the TV business. The Southwestern Law School grad started her Hollywood career at Warner Bros. TV in 1979 and stayed until '93. That was followed by stints at Columbia TriStar TV, ABC, NBC and Buena Vista Television. She joined the Paradigm Agency in 2002 as an executive vp before leaving the business in 2005 and moving to North Carolina.

"Beverly began what was a very successful career in the industry here at Warner Bros," said Barry Meyer, the studio's chairman and CEO. "We are all devastated by her passing -- a passing that came prematurely in the life of a wonderful person. Beverly was intelligent, a brilliant executive and, quite simply, a great friend. We will miss her."

Survivors include her husband, Thomas Meier, and her twin children, Grady Franklin and Libby Jane Meier.
