PARIS– Mark Gordon, one of Hollywood’s most prolific film and TV producers, is set to deliver a keynote at Mipcom, the Cannes-set international TV confab.

Gordon’s keynote, scheduled on Oct. 5, will be part of the Mipcom’s “A New Creative Excellence” conference program.

The Mark Gordon Company develops and produces upscale content for global distribution. Through its alliance with Entertainment One (eOne), Gordon’s shingle also finances independent, third-party film and television productions. The partnership with eOne has led to the creation of an independent studio that combines Gordon’s track record of working with emerging and established talent with the financial and distribution expertise of eOne.

Gordon ’s TV slate includes five scripted series across multiple platforms: “Grey’s Anatomy” on ABC and “Criminal Minds” on CBS — two of the longest-running series in recent television history; “Ray Donovan” on Showtime; upcoming drama series “Quantico,” premiering Sep. 27 on ABC; and spinof. “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders” on CBS.

Gordon, who was this year honored by the PGA with the Norman Lear Award for achievement in television, is a five-time Emmy nominee and two-time winner. He also won a Golden Globe for his work on “Grey’s Anatomy.”

On the movie side, Gordon’s upcoming projects include “Steve Jobs,” penned by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle (set for release on Oct. 9, 2015), and Todd Phillips’s “Arms and the Dudes,” with Jonah Hill and Miles Teller (set for a March release).

His past movie credits include “Saving Private Ryan,” “2012,” “The Day After Tomorrow,” “Speed,” “Source,” “The Messenger” and “The Patriot.”
