Co-President / Producer

Gardner — with co-president Jeremy Kleiner — has been making her mark with quality fare through Brad Pitt prodco Plan B Entertainment, with six Oscar nominations for best picture, most recently 2018’s “Vice.” But they took the statue for 2013’s “12 Years a Slave” and 2017’s “Moonlight,” making Gardner the only female two-time best picture winner. With some time as a location scout, she worked at Innovative Artists and William Morris before becoming EVP of production at Paramount. Among her recent projects are the series “The OA” (Netflix) and “Sweetbitter” (Starz), buzzy feature “If Beale Street Could Talk” (2018) and 2019 releases “Ad Astra,” starring Pitt, and “The King,” with Timothée Chalamet. 2020 brings the HBO series “The Third Day,” which she’s exec producing, as well as an overall television deal with Amazon to develop series for their streaming service.
