More Shakeups at CBS Films, Maria Faillace Departs

CBS Films, which saw co-president Wolfgang Hammer depart recently, has cut staff by nine, including exec VP of production Maria Faillace.

Faillace will transition to being a producer on the upcoming CBS Films’ romantic comedy “The Exes,” directed by Andy Fickman.

Some of the other departures may be moved into other CBS jobs or into consulting posts.

The studio confirmed on July 22 that Terry Press had become sole president and that Hammer had quietly stepped down last May into a consulting role at CBS Corporate, advising on digital content. The studio also laid off five people at that point.

CBS Films will release the Daniel Radcliffe romantic comedy “What If” on Friday. It recently wrapped production on teen comedy “The DUFF,” starring Mae Whitman, Bella Thorne and Ken Jeong.

Faillace joined CBS Films in 2008 and was promoted in 2012 after Press and Hammer were announced as co-presidents. She oversaw production on “Last Vegas,” the company’s most significant recent success.

News was first reported by Nikkifinke.com.
