VP, Original Films

As VP of the Netflix studio features group, Nagenda leads a team responsible for the production and acquisition of some 20 movies a year, including big-budget projects like Spike Lee’s “Da 5 Bloods,” “Extraction,” starring Chris Hemsworth, and “Project Power,” starring Jamie Foxx. The son of immigrants from Uganda and Belize, he jumped from a post-college job as an accountant at Deloitte to a production finance post at HBO, supplementing the journey with nighttime film classes. He wound up doing an eight-year stint (2010-18) as EVP of production at Disney, where he helped guide such films as Tim Burton’s “Dumbo,” Ava DuVernay’s “A Wrinkle in Time” and the inspirational drama “Queen of Katwe.” Recent Netflix films overseen by Nagenda include holiday musical “Jingle Jangle” and Ron Howard’s adaption of bestseller “Hillbilly Elegy.”
