As its development slate grows, Justin Lin’s Perfect Storm Entertainment shingle has made several key hires, bringing on Ben Shields Catlin as SVP of film and TV, Mary Lee as SVP of film and TV and Eric Brassard as director of TV development. In addition, the company has promoted Elizabeth Urwin to coordinator.
Catlin comes to PSE from IM Global, where he acted as senior VP of production and acquisitions and was an integral part of the foreign sales team on Martin Scorsese’s upcoming film “Silence.”
Prior to joining PSE, Lee ran Jake Johnson and Max Winkler’s production shingle the Walcott Company, based at 20th Century Fox TV, through their overall deal with the studio.
Brassard spent the last year and a half at Sonar Entertainment working in series and longform development under Jenna Glazier and Tom Patricia. While at Sonar, Brassard worked on such projects as “South of Hell” for We TV, “The Shannara Chronicles” for MTV and “Taboo” for FX.
“This is a truly exciting time for Perfect Storm, as we continue to increase our production activity on both the film and television fronts. We have an extremely unique opportunity with so many varied pursuits both domestically and internationally and these exceptional hires will help us greatly towards those efforts,” said Troy Craig Poon, CEO of Perfect Storm Entertainment
