Indie has 5-year deal with Universal

Media Rights Capital has upped Liz Jenkins to VP of corporate development.

Jenkins will oversee greenlight and sales strategies for the indie film, TV and digital studio. She also will shepherd the joint distribution venture between MRC and Universal — the two have a five-year, 20-pic domestic deal — while continuing to support the studio’s day-to-day business planning, production budgeting and foreign sales efforts.

In her new role, Jenkins will focus on identifying strategic partnerships, distribution deals and new business opportunities.

MRC was attached to the recent Universal release “The Adjustment Bureau,” starring Matt Damon.
