Christenson ankles Myriad Pictures

Veep will not be replaced and no changes are foreseen

In an amicable parting, Eric Christenson, executive vice president of sales and distribution for indie production and sales shingle Myriad Pictures, is exiting the company effective Jan. 1 to pursue other business opportunities.

Christenson, who has been with the company since its inception nearly five years ago, has played a major role in the growth and development of the company and has built a solid sales team, which will now report directly to Myriad Pictures prexy Kirk D’Amico.

Christenson will not be replaced and the sales team will remain as is — Samantha Horley, senior VP of international distribution; Mary Herne, senior VP of worldwide television; Alice Weston, sales executive; and James Harvey, director of distribution.

“I am very proud of the sales team that Kirk and I have assembled, and I leave Myriad confident that the team will continue to enhance Myriad Pictures’ reputation as one of the top independent sales companies in the marketplace,” Christenson said.

Added D’Amico: “I have enjoyed immensely working with Eric for the last five years and wish him well in all future endeavors.”

At Sundance this year, Myriad will be selling the ensemble family comedy “Eulogy,” starring Ray Romano, Debra Winger and Hank Azaria, and the supernatural thriller “Trauma,” with Colin Firth and Mena Suvari.

Current projects include the comedy “Piccadilly Jim” starring Sam Rockwell, Tom Wilkinson, Brenda Blythen and Hugh Bonneville, and the supernatural murder mystery “The River King” starring Edward Burns. Other projects now entering post-production include the comedic bio-pic “Kinsey,” starring Liam Neeson and Laura Linney, and “Being Julia,” starring Annette Bening.
