Ben Affleck is making major news today because he’s been seen out (and having lots of fun) with Lindsay Shookus, a little known producer for Saturday Night Live and music producer.
How much is Lindsay Shookus net worth? What does she make on Saturday Night Live? What does she have to gain if things get serious and she marries Ben Affleck?
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are through, but Ben is having fun with his new woman, Lindsay Shookus.
Shookus studied journalism before going out to Hollywood looking for a job. She started as assistant to a producer of SNL.
As a starting assistant to a producer, she would have made pretty close to minimum wage…but in that position it’s possible to go up rapidly.
And Shookus did. She quickly became a producer, and then a producer on NBC’s 30 Rock. These jobs can rage greatly in salary,
Given her important roles on SNL and 30 Rock, she is likely to have made $250,000 or more annually as an assistant producer/producer. Non-executive producers can make up to several million dollars per year, but we estimate she was somewhere on the middle of that scale.
Shookus was well known in the music world, being named on of the Top 50 Music Execs by Billboard magazine.
In total, we estimate Lindsay Shookus net worth at over $1 million.
Shookus is now gaining fame for being connected with Ben Affleck. Affleck, with dozens of hit films, shows, and other projects in his name, is estimated to be worth anywhere between $75 million and $120 million.
If Shookus does get serious with Affleck, that’s quite a bonus.
