Carla Hacken

Former Fox 2000 exec Carla Hacken has been named president of production of Sidney Kimmel Entertainment.

While working at Fox, Hacken oversaw such hits as “The Devil Wears Prada,” “Walk the Line” and “The Family Stone.”

“Carla is a dynamic, creative executive who brings with her a wealth of experience and an undisputed respect and standing in the business,” said Jim Tauber, president of SKE. “Her leadership, insights and obvious skills will be invaluable to SKE as we expand our film and television production.”

Hacken had most recently launched her own company Paper Pictures, which had a first look deal at DreamWorks.

“SKE is aggressively developing and producing numerous projects, and Sidney and Jim have an exciting vision for the Company,” Hacken said. “I am thrilled to dive in and help SKE realize that vision.”
