eOne’s Gordon makes production shift

Entertainment One (eOne) has confirmed Mark Gordon is shifting from president and chief content officer of film and television to a role focused on developing and producing content for the group.

Gordon has agreed a multi-year producing deal that will see him create premium content for eOne across all platforms. Steve Bertram, eOne’s president of film and television, will continue to lead the film and TV business, overseeing day-to-day management of the entire division and working with Peter Micelli, chief strategy officer of film and television, and Nick Meyer, president of film.

Gordon became the boss of eOne’s film and TV division a year-and-a-half ago, in return for eOne gaining full control of his eponymous LA-based studio in a US$209m deal, on a five-year agreement.

He had been tasked with driving both film and TV content strategy and enhancing eOne’s ability to attract creative talent and partners. In the future, heritage series from The Mark Gordon Company will remain with eOne, with Gordon executive producing.

Reports emerged last month suggesting Gordon’s future as president of eOne’s film and TV division was in doubt, with his role set to shift to become more creative-focused.

eOne president and CEO Darren Throop said: “In today’s rapidly expanding market, content has become the greatest differentiator and Mark Gordon is one of the best content producers in the business.

“Our shift towards content production has continued to bear fruit and position eOne for ongoing success across film and television. We believe our position in the market will be even stronger with Mark solely focused on creating content for eOne, and look forward to working together for years to come.”

Gordon added: “I’m proud of what we have built together over the past four years and I look forward to continuing my incredibly successful relationship with eOne. The continuing support from Darren to invest in high-quality content will allow us to build on the strong foundation we have laid in a market where the global appetite for premium content is voracious.”
