Paramount Network TV has hired Reid Shane as senior vice president of production, replacing Jerry Goldman, who will segue into a longform production post at the studio.
Shane, who will oversee physical production for all series, pilots and longform programming, is joining Par from the Kushner Locke Co., where he served as senior VP of production since 1994.
There, he worked on such series as ABC’s “Cracker” and the now-canceled “Gun.” He supervised film production on features such as “Andre” and “The Adventures of Pinocchio.”
Prior to that, Shane worked for Propaganda Films, Concorde New Horizon and produced commercials for New York ad agencies Dancer Fitzgerald Sample and Ogilvy & Mather.
His predecessor, Goldman, has worked for Paramount since 1982, most recently as senior VP of finance and production, where he oversaw production for series and longform programming. He’ll now be a producer of telefilms and miniseries, an area that Par has beefed up significantly over the past two years under the direction of longform veepee Tom Russo.
Goldman started out at Par as a veep of finance, and prior to working at the studio, he was a VP/controller at Filmways and an assistant controller at Universal.
