Tom Sherak Tapped as L.A. Film Czar

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has tapped Tom Sherak as the city’s so-called film czar, earning a salary of $1 per year.

Sherak is the high-profile figure that Garcetti promised he would appoint to lobby Sacramento and promote production in Los Angeles.

Tom will lead our campaign for production incentives in Sacramento and is empowered to work across city departments to make L.A. the best possible location for production,” Garcetti said in a statement.

Sherak said, “I look forward to helping Mayor Garcetti stop runaway production, increase state production tax credits and city City Hall red tape.”

Sherak was previously president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and currently is a consultant for Skydance Productions, One Three Media and other entertainment companies. He was a partner at Revolution Films, and consulted for Marvel Studios on films such as “Iron Man.” He served as chairman of the 20th Century Fox Film Group.
