Former Universal Pictures production VP Carr D’Angelo has been tapped as VP of production for producer Lorne Michaels’ Paramount-based Broadway Pictures.
D’Angelo, who assumed the newly created post April 1, will be involved in all phases of feature development and production, along with president of production Bob Weiss.
D’Angelo joined Universal’s story department in 1988. He became VP of production in 1994, supervising such movies as “Happy Gilmore,” “Reality Bites,” “Little Rascals” and “Fierce Creatures.”
Before Universal, he was a freelance journalist and managing editor for Starlog magazine.
Broadway Pictures, the feature division of Michaels’ Broadway Video, has a first-look deal with Paramount, where it has produced such films as “Wayne’s World,” “Tommy Boy” and “Wayne’s World 2.”
The company currently is developing a feature version of the “Saturday Night Live” sketch “Roxbury Guys.”
Broadway Video was founded in 1979 by Michaels, the eight-time Emmy Award-winning “Saturday Night Live” producer. With 200 employees in New York and Los Angeles, the company’s activities include TV, feature and interactive production.
