HOLLYWOOD — Revolution Studios has named Suzanne Fritz head of worldwide publicity, replacing the recently departed Mae Joyce.
Fritz was senior veepee of publicity and marketing for Centropolis Entertainment until partners Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin dissolved the company. She subsequently worked for Devlin’s Electric Entertainment, then as an awards consultant for Sony’s “Ali.”
“Suzanne has a remarkable, all-encompassing background that gives her the perfect foundation for this position,” said marketing-distribution topper Terry Curtin, to whom Fritz will report.
Fritz and Curtin previously worked together at MGM. New gig will also continue Fritz’s work with Sony, which handles distribution for Revolution.
Fritz spent three years at MGM, leaving as executive director of national publicity. She previously worked for Nancy Seltzer & Associates and started at PMK’s New York office. She also has co-authored a book on the making of Emmerich-helmed pic “The Patriot.”
Joyce, whom she replaces, left recently to plan her upcoming wedding and pursue a career as a film publicity consultant.
