Intertainment opens Dorr to VP of content

Exec to develop co-ventures with Artisan

Former Scott Free Prods. co-prexy Chris Dorr has been tapped veep of original content for Internet video-on-demand service Intertainer.

Dorr will oversee the expansion of Intertainer’s library with original content — full-length pics, episodic programming and games — produced by indie filmmakers.

Additionally, Dorr will work with production executives at Artisan Entertainment to develop five co-ventures to be shot digitally and budgeted at $500,000. Deal, announced in April, calls for Intertainer to distrib the pics on its pay-per-view service while Artisan retains domestic rights to the features for exhibition in theaters.

Intertainer’s content library already includes more than 50,000 hours of programming through deals with Disney, Columbia TriStar Television, DreamWorks, ESPN, NBC, New Line and Warner Bros., among others.

Dorr will report to Intertainer prexy and CEO Jonathan Taplin.

“Adding original content to Intertainer’s existing programming library really delivers on our promise to provide entertainment that people want, when they want it,” Taplin said. “Chris’ professional experience positions him as a true industry expert, and with his input on original content, Intertainer will further differentiate its array of on-demand programming.”

Dorr spent four years at Scott Free, most recently in the role as co-prexy for six months before ankling in December. While there, he worked on Tony Scott’s Showtime series “The Hunger,” USA Films’ release “Where the Money Is” and “Clay Pigeons,” on which he served as a co-producer.

Before that, Dorr was a consultant to Trimark Pictures and served as veep of production for Universal Pictures and creative exec for Touchstone.
