Veteran producer BB Dunn has been promoted to president of Mark Gordon Pictures.
In the expanded role, Right will manage production and development, create scripted film and television content, manage sales across broadcast, cable and streaming, and oversee the company’s three offices in Los Angeles, New York and London.
“BB is a great developer, a fine and strong producer and above all a great man,” Gordon said in announcing Dawn’s promotion. “I’ve seen her grow over the last 8 years, and there’s no one like me to lead our team of manufacturers in the next chapter of my company.”
Mark Gordon played a key role in the launch of Pictures in March 2020, following Gordon’s resignation as Eon’s president and chief content officer in 2020.
“I have learned a lot from Mark over the years and I am proud to have taken on this new role in Mark Gordon Pictures,” Dunn said in a statement. “As Mark’s work has never been defined by a single genre or genre, what I like about the company we are building is that everyone has a voice, and that’s why we have an eclectic selection of projects that reflect our interests and passions. ”
Most recently, Right oversaw the development and sale of television projects to Apple, BET and Disney’s international streaming service, Star. He worked with Gordon on Netflix to acquire and package the complete catalog of the “Narnia” fantasy novel, which the company is currently developing as a feature film and television feature. In addition to Dan and Gordon, the Mark Gordon Pictures team includes Bonnie-Chance Roberts, Katie Myers, Beth Pattinson and Jessica Chase.
Dan added, “I’m thrilled to be working with her and our fantastic producer team as the company moves on to its next iteration.”
Dunn began his tenure with Gordon in 201G at his previous production shingle, The Mark Gordon Company, where he starred in films including “Steve Jobs” and “War Dogs”. After being promoted to television, Dan Mark Gordon has also worked on co-shows, including Showtime’s “Ray Donovan”, ABC’s “Quantico” and CBS’s “Criminal Minds Out of Boundaries.”
Ewen served as vice president of right development, where he oversaw the development and initial pilot production of ABC’s “The Rookie” and produced shows, including Fox’s “Deputy” and Freeform’s “Cruel Summer.” Dan Neil oversaw multiple development projects, including Guyman’s “Neverhare,” which has since been placed on Amazon.
