Fraser-Baigelman new prez at Yorktown Prods.

Yorktown Prods. has officially inked Gayle Fraser-Baigelman as president of director Norman Jewison’s WB-based production company, the executive confirmed Monday.

Under terms of Fraser-Baigelman’s deal, she will be executive producer of all films produced under the Yorktown banner.

Confirmation of Fraser-Baigelman’s appointment follows a Daily Variety report that she was the likely successor to former Yorktown executive Cathy Konrad, who ankled the company to become president of the Hollywood Pictures/Miramax production company Woods Entertainment (Daily Variety, Feb. 18).

Fraser-Baigelman first hooked up with director Jewison when she brought him the romantic comedy “Atlantic Comedy,” which she was attached to as an independent producer. That project is currently being rewritten by “Untamed Heart” screenwriter Tom Sierchio for Jewison to direct at WB.

Previously, the executive was a veepee at Jerry Weintraub Prods., where she was involved in the Sylvester Stallone/Sharon Stone-starrer “The Specialist,” Larry McMurtry’s “Pretty Boy Floyd,” the George Strait-starrer “Pure Country” and “Karate Kid 4.” She also worked for about 18 months at Tribeca Prods., contributing to such pix as “Thunderheart” and “A Bronx Tale.” She’s married to writer/director Steven Baigelman, who is prepping the project “Feeling Minnesota” for Jersey Films.

Fraser-Baigelman’s appointment is effective immediately. In confirming her appointment, she said, “At Yorktown I have a threefold goal: to find and nurture new writing and directing talent, to bring Norman the best scripts to direct, and to increase our production slate.” Yorktown currently sports such movie projects as TriStar’s “Whistleblower,” Columbia Pictures’ “Bogus” and “Atlantic Avenue.” It also has the ambitious cable series “The Painted Word.”
