Temple Hill recently hired Page (pictured above) to head the banner’s TV division. Page, who was most recently vice president of Creative for Xbox Entertainment Studios, will handle all television development and production. Prior to the Microsoft position, Page was senior vice president of Development and Production for Mandeville Films and Television, where he helped develop “The Proposal” and “The Fighter.”
The production company most recently produced the drama pilot “Rosewood” for Fox. The pilot, created by Todd Harthan and directed by Richard Shepard, was picked up to series for 13 episodes and is set to premiere this fall. Additionally, Temple Hill, alongside Sonar Entertainment, will produce “Mr. Mercedes,” a series based on the Stephen King novel with David E. Kelley writing and Jack Bender directing.
Temple Hill was previously under an overall deal at ABC Studios where they produced “Revenge” for four seasons. On the film side, Temple Hill has produced the “Twilight” franchise, “The Maze Runner” trilogy and “The Fault in Our Stars,” among others.
“Wyck and I are excited to expand our television business with Dana, Gary, Jonnie and everyone at Fox,” Bowen said. “With the addition of Albert to our team, we are confident that we can take our TV business to the next level.”
“I am thrilled to be joining the Temple Hill team to run their television department,” Page added. “Their track record in film is unparalleled and I am excited at the opportunity to cultivate their TV business in the same way.”
“Marty and Wyck are incredibly talented producers, with a history of identifying great storytelling and talent,” said Jonnie Davis, 20th’s president of Creative Affairs. “We’re thrilled to bring their passion for undeniable television to the studio. Their laser focus and ability to break through the clutter in such a crowded marketplace makes this a perfect partnership.”
