Todd Calvin, former development veepee at Laurence Mark Prods., has moved to the Sony-based Turman-Morrissey Co. as a VP of creative affairs.
The company also upped Susan Hart to creative exec.
The jobs are part of an expansion for Turman-Morrissey, which currently has its first movie out and is about to go into production on its second.
Calvin will report to producers Lawrence Turman and John Morrissey in finding new material and developing in-house projects. Hart was an assistant to Morrissey for the last two years.
“We are delighted to have an executive with the skills and intelligence of Todd,” said Morrissey. “He fits very nicely into our plans for expanding production.”
At Laurence Mark Prods., Calvin worked on such projects as the Tom Cruise hit “Jerry Maguire,” as well as the upcoming “Deep Rising,” “Romy and Michele,” “A Prayer for Owen Meany” and “The Object of My Affection.”
A former attorney with Gaston & Snow, Calvin specialized in the securities business before he entered showbiz.
Turman-Morrissey, which is in the first year of its three-year first-look deal with Columbia Pictures, had its first Columbia preem last week with “Booty Call.” The company is in pre-production on “American History X” with Edward Norton for New Line Cinema
