Nemes comes to Cinemax from financer-producer the Film Department, where he worked on movies including “Law Abiding Citizen.”

Nemes has experience on the other side of the camera, as well, working as a child actor on “It’s Garry Shandling’s Show” and “The Wonder Years,” as well as in feature films.

Cinemax originals include the current “Strike Back 2: Project Dawn,” which it commissioned with U.K. network Sky, and an upcoming television series spinoff of the “Transporter” films.
