Sonar Entertainment Appoints Tom Patricia VP of Limited Series, Miniseries and Movies

Sonar Entertainment has set Tom Patricia as senior VP of limited series, miniseries and movies. The announcement was made Tuesday by Gene Stein, CEO of Sonar.

“Tom’s creative instincts are impeccable – he has an amazing talent for spotting great content and turning it into compelling television,” Stein said. “His personal network of writers, directors, actors, broadcasters, agents, authors and others will have a huge impact on our ability to fast track a steady pipeline of original productions.”

In his new role, Patricia will oversee the development and production of Sonar’s programming. The company is currently at work on “South of Hell” with Eli Roth for We TV and “Shannara” for MTV, which are both scheduled for bows in 2015. Next year, Sonar will begin production on “Taboo,” which will star Tom Hardy and play on BBC One and FX.

Patricia comes to Sonar from Lionsgate Television, where he supervised long-form programming development. Prior to Lionsgate, he headed up television divisions for Michael Ovitz’s Artists Television Group and Peter Guber’s Mandalay Entertainment. Patricia is known for his work on miniseries including NBC’s “Rosemary’s Baby” and Lifetime’s “The Gathering.”
