Kerry Kohansky-Roberts, a veteran producer at Chris and Paul Weitz’ Depth of Field, has joined the production team at Anonymous Content.

Chairman and CEO Steve Golin made the announcement about Kohansky-Roberts, who joins Alix Madigan, Matt DeRoss and Emmeline Yang and will work on film and television.

“Kerry is talented, has great relationships and has a very strong sense of what makes a great script,” Golin said.

Kohansky-Roberts has worked for more than 10 years at Depth of Field, where she co-produced “In Good Company,” written and directed by Paul Weitz; produced “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist,” written by Lorene Scafaria and directed by Peter Sollett; and exec produced “Lone Star,” created by Kyle Killen last year for Fox.

She’s producing “Admission,” written by Karen Croner and directed by Paul Weitz with Tina Fey attached to star for Universal, and is an exec producer on Focus’ “Being Flynn,” directed by Paul Weitz and starring Robert De Niro, Julianne Moore, Paul Dano, Olivia Thirlby, Lili Taylor, Victor Rasuk and Dale Dickey.

Anonymous Content produced “Winter’s Bone,” recently wrapped on Universal’s “Big Miracle” and recently acquired rights to “Cutting for Stone” by Abraham Verghese. It is in post-production on “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World,” directed by Scafaria and starring Steve Carell and Keira Knightley, and on Josh Schwartz’ “Fun Size” for Par.
