With an eye to expanding its feature film production slate, City Lights Media Group has upped Michael Cohen to vice president of production and development.

A nine-year veteran of the Gotham-based indie, Cohen will find, procure and develop film projects for the company. Cohen most recently produced “Kosher Sex” featuring Rabbi Schmuley Boteach for City Lights, which aired on PBS.

Eager to move from the shadows into the spotlight, City Lights has several noteworthy projects under way, including John Waters’ “Dirty Shame,” which the company is exec producing with Christine Vachon’s Killer Films. Ted Hope’s This is That production shingle is also behind the film being produced for New Line and Fine Line, staring Tracey Ullman, Selma Blair and Chris Isaak. Next film on deck is supernatural thriller “Tamara.”

City Lights Media Group was founded 21 years ago by Danny, Jack and Joe Fisher and operates post-production facilities as well as TV and film production.
