Johnson

President

Johnson already had a significant career in film production, including 1989 Oscar winner “Rain Man” and 1992 nominee “Bugsy,” as well as “Diner,” “The Natural,” “Good Morning, Vietnam,” “Galaxy Quest” and “The Notebook,” when he expanded into TV and proved equally successful in that realm. The Emmy-winning success of “Breaking Bad” led to a relationship with AMC that extended to “Better Call Saul,” “Halt and Catch Fire” and “Rectify” (for sister channel Sundance). Along with recent big-screen outings “Downsizing” and “Lucky Logan,” he’s at work on his first Spanish-language film for Netflix, “Fever Dream,” as well as a feature from “Breaking Bad” mastermind Vince Gilligan. He shared his Hollywood know-how at last year’s inaugural mentoring event Producers Mashup, part of the annual Produced by Conference.
