Pam Abdy Moves to New Regency as President of Production

Bluegrass circling Dylan Clark to replace Abdy

Pam Abdy is exiting her post as president of Scott Stuber’s Bluegrass shingle and will be moving to New Regency as president of production. The move will take effect immediately.

Variety has learned that Dylan Clark is favored to take over for Abdy as president of Bluegrass. Clark has a longstanding relationship with Stuber, and it has been long believed by those in the industry that the two would work together eventually.

Abdy joined Bluegrass in 2008. Prior to that she served as exec VP of development and production at Paramount, reporting to Brad Weston during his time there as president of production. Abdy again will report to Weston, who currently is president and CEO of New Regency.

“I could not be more pleased to bring Pam into New Regency,” Weston said in a statement. “Her exceptional taste, strong filmmaker relationships and incredible work ethic are precisely in line with our focus at New Regency.

“She is the perfect addition,” Weston added.

The move signals that New Regency may be shifting into producing more lower-budget comedies to help boost the company’s bottom line. Abdy has had a long interest in producing comedies, including “Identity Thief” and “Garden State.”
