First Look revamps legal dep’t

Ghaffari to take on expanded role; Fagen joins co.

HOLLYWOOD — Following the promotion of Doug McClure to general counsel, First Look Media has restructured its legal affairs department.

Kian Ghaffari will continue to report directly to McClure as director of business and legal affairs, but will have an expanded role with regard to video acquisitions.

James Fagen has joined the company as manager of business and legal affairs, reporting to McClure. He will handle global sales for First Look Intl.

Fagen joins the company from Universal, where he handled domestic TV syndication in the studio’s domestic television business and legal affairs department.

“Kian’s experience in international, and in particular foreign video, will provide a great basis for his new domestic duties and an ongoing asset to First Look Intl. due to his previous experience,” said McClure.
