FilmRise, the New York-based TV and movie distributor, Oct. 13 announced the promotion of Max Einhorn to SVP of acquisitions and co-productions. Einhorn, who was VP of acquisitions, will continue leading the company’s acquisitions initiatives, in addition to spearheading the company’s co-productions team.
A six-year veteran at FilmRise, Einhorn currently serves as EP on the True Crime TV series “Bloodline Detectives,” which he ordered for FilmRise and former prosecutor Nancy Grace as host.
Einhorn has negotiated deals with dozens of producers, networks, and studios for TV franchises that include “Unsolved Mysteries,” “Forensic Files,” “Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen” and “Kitchen Nightmares,” as well as programs from Carsey Werner, Cannell Entertainment, and other classic television programs.
The content is licensed by FilmRise to its streaming partners in the SVOD and AVOD space, in addition to the distributor’s own streaming network.
“Einhorn’s expanding role reflects his intense grasp of overall content strategy, international expansion, FilmRise’s commitment to original content, and the company’s extension as a service-provider to production companies and studios,” CEO Danny Fisher said in a statement.
Einhorn began at FilmRise in 2014 wearing many hats as Fisher’s assistant. Prior to that, he began his career in 2012 interning with producer Anthony Bregman at Likely Story, and then running development for film financier Henry Pincus.
