Rosenman Will Head Brillstein / Grey's Film Division

July 13, 1993

Brillstein/Grey Entertainment, the production/management firm now riding high with the HBO comedy hit "The Larry Sanders Show," starring client Garry Shandling, is about to boost its film production in a major way.

The company, headed by Bernie Brill-stein and Brad Grey, is hiring veteran producer Howard Rosenman to head its film division. Rosenman, co-president of Sandy Gallin's and Dolly Parton's Sandollar Productions, produced the hit film "Father of the Bride." He starts Sept. 21 at Brillstein/Grey after his contract with Sandollar expires.

Brillstein/Grey believes it can comfortably produce three to four pictures a year, Grey said.

The company has a lucrative production and distribution deal with Columbia Pictures that gives Columbia first-look rights to film projects. "We're at a place now where we want to get aggressive in the movie business," Grey said.

In addition to film and television production, Brillstein/Grey manages such clients as Shandling, actor Brad Pitt and actress Elizabeth Perkins, and comics Mike Myers and Dana Carvey.
