Cream whips up development exec

Toronto-based Cream Productions has promoted a veteran industry executive to the role of VP of development.

James Farr

James Farr has been upped from director of development. He will oversee the Cream development team and continue to create programming for broadcast and cable networks.

With a focus on true crime, history and paranormal content, Farr will continue to report directly to Cream CEO David Brady and president Kate Harrison Karman.

Farr joined Cream a decade ago and has since developed nearly two-dozen projects for the Canadian outfit, including Fear Thy Neighbor, Paranormal Emergency, If I Should I Die, The World Without Canada, Murder U, Evil Encounters and the Emmy-nominated Blood & Fury: America’s Civil War. He previously was manager of development at the company.

The promotion follows the company’s recent launch of its dedicated film division, Cream Films, and the appointment of Corey Russel as executive VP.

Cream is currently in production on Netflix series Age of Samurai: Battle for Japan, plus The Story of Late Night for CNN and the seventh season of Fear Thy Neighbor. Last year, the company produced 10 series and over 70 hours of programming.
