Glickman was most recently head of Panoramic, the production company he founded in 2020 with a first-look deal in place with MGM.

During his time with LA-based Panoramic, he executive produced Netflix hit series Wednesday and the Amazon/MGM features Creed 3 and The Underdoggs. He is also an executive producer on the upcoming Netflix conspiracy thriller Zero Day, starring Robert De Niro.

Before that he spent nine years with MGM as president of its motion picture group, where he oversaw franchises including James Bond, Rocky and its Michael B Jordan-led spin-off Creed.

Founded by Harvey and Bob Weinstein in 1979, Miramax is today owned by Qatar-based sports and entertainment firm beIN Media Group, which holds a 51% stake, and Paramount Global, which owns 49%. Miramax also has a first-look deal with Paramount Pictures on the film side.

“With its world-renowned library and the united desire from its shareholders to produce IP-based as well as original projects, Miramax is uniquely placed to be the leading independent film and television studio for the years to come,” said Glickman.

“I cannot wait to join Miramax’s dedicated team, alongside my partners at beIN and Paramount Global, and continue this company’s tradition of creating unforgettable stories for film, TV and beyond.”

Nasser Al-Khelaïfisaid, chairman of beIN Media Group, added: “Jonathan’s leadership will see Miramax broaden our already-extensive IP base and build upon our commitment to compelling original content.

“We will also focus on expanding Miramax’s footprint across the globe, with local storytelling and production outside of Hollywood, across movies and series. Together with our partners at Paramount, we welcome Jonathan to the team and look forward to continued creativity, innovation and growth.”

Paramount Pictures president and CEO Brian Robbins said that under Glickman’s leadership, Miramax is “poised to build on its incredible legacy of top-tier library properties, films, and television projects.”
