New York-based distributor FilmRise has elevated six-year veteran Max Einhorn to SVP of acquisitions and coproductions.
In his newly expanded role, Einhorn (pictured), who previously served as VP of acquisitions, will continue leading the company’s acquisitions initiatives while expanding his remit to oversee the firm’s copro team and is tasked with coproducing content with collaborators.
Einhorn currently serves as an executive producer on the true crime series Bloodline Detectives, which is produced by Peninsula Television in partnership with Sky Studios and FilmRise. The series is hosted by legal analyst Nancy Grace.
Einhorn’s new role “reflects his intense grasp of overall content strategy, international expansion, FilmRise’s commitment to original content, and the company’s extension as a service-provider to production companies and studios looking to benefit from FilmRise’s distribution expertise,” FilmRise CEO Danny Fisher said in a statement.
“We look forward to his leadership expansion with not only his proven track record with acquisitions, but now as we advance into co-productions.”
Einhorn boarded FilmRise in 2014 as Fisher’s assistant and was most recently VP of acquisitions. In this role, he was responsible for developing and helped to grow FilmRise into one of the largest indie distributors in film and television streaming.
He has previously negotiated deals with several of producers, networks, and studios to expand FilmRise’s content portfolio to include Unsolved Mysteries, Forensic Files, Hell’s Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares, among others.
