Blumhouse is centralizing its physical production groups across film and television into a single department that will be led by Lisa Niedenthal, a four-year veteran of Blumhouse TV.

Prior to her promotion, Niedenthal served as executive vice president and head of production for Blumhouse Television, where she oversaw physical production on all scripted and unscripted projects. Prior to joining Blumhouse TV, she was SVP of production at Entertainment One, where she oversaw production on numerous feature, television and digital projects.

Additionally, Jon Romano, who has been with Blumhouse since 2019, has been promoted to SVP physical production. Reporting to Niedenthal, he will oversee production for all film projects, both theatrical and streaming.

“I’m thrilled that Lisa Niedenthal will be heading our combined physical production team. She has demonstrated excellent leadership during her tenure at Blumhouse, and her expertise will serve the company well,” said Jason Blum, CEO and founder of Blumhouse, in a news release.

“The move to combine physical production will make us more competitive as a company, and allow us to take a higher-level approach to hiring crews across TV and film projects, better strategize on production tax credits, streamline systems and processes, and will give us the ability to flex and deploy our staff and internal resources,” Niedenthal added.

Among Blumhouse’s recent unscripted projects are the documentary Our Father, which dropped on Netflix earlier this year, and the upcoming HBO Max docuseries The Anarchists, which premieres this month.
