With a full-season order of its Chuck Norris CBS series “Walker: Texas Ranger” and the Albert Brooks baseball pic “The Scout” lensing in Mexico for Fox , the Ruddy/Morgan Organization is boosting its slate from two to six titles per year.
Recently appointed Ruddy/Morgan senior production VP David List will play a key part in achieving this goal, principals Al Ruddy and Andre Morgan said Thursday.
List previously held a similar position at Allied Stars.
Working closely with Ruddy and Morgan, List will be involved in all production, from material acquisition to talent packaging.
“We’re eager to have David address the more than 30 projects currently moving through the development process,” Morgan said in a statement. “With his strong background as a literary agent and packager, David will be vital in guiding and shaping this process for the company.”
List added in a statement: “I am drawn toward strong, character-driven scripts that lay the foundation for fairly sophisticated motion pictures. In light of our current slate, we’re already making headway in that direction.”
List’s projects at Allied Stars included Cinergi’s “The Scarlet Letter,” starring Demi Moore, and Warner Bros.’ “Sea Kings.”
Ruddy/Morgan has a wide slate ahead of it, including the upcoming Vietnam saga “Americal,” the Fox comedy “The Scout” and that studio’s upcoming femme oater, “Bad Girls.”
