DreamWorks taps production exec

Kramer to oversee 'Baywatch,' 'Tropic Thunder'

Former Miramax senior VP of production Jeremy Kramer has joined DreamWorks as a production exec. He’ll report to production head Adam Goodman.

At the studio, Kramer will be overseeing the bigscreen version of “Baywatch” and the Ben Stiller vehicle “Tropic Thunder,” among other projects.

Kramer developed a strong relationship with Stiller and his DreamWorks-based production shingle, Red Hour, while working on the film “Duplex” at Miramax. Kramer will continue to work closely with the company.

Kramer began his career in 1995 as an independent producer in New York, working on “Kicking and Screaming,” directed by Noah Baumbach. He then moved to Los Angeles, where he worked at MPCA and, later, Orion Pictures, where he rose to the rank of VP of creative affairs and production.

In 1998, he began working at Miramax, where he became senior VP of production a year later.

In his seven years at Miramax, Kramer oversaw more than 15 films, including “She’s All That,” “40 Days and 40 Nights,” “Duplex” and, more recently, Nick Cannon’s “Underclassman.”
