David Ellison’s Skydance Promotes Dana Goldberg to Oversee Film, TV

Goldberg had been president of production, but the promotion comes as Skydance expands into TV

Skydance Productions has named Dana Goldberg its chief creative officer, a promotion that gives her oversight of the production company’s film and television operations. Goldberg was previously president of production, overseeing the company’s work on films such as “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” and “World War Z.”

Skydance, founded by billionaire David Ellison, launched a television division in April and hired former Fox executive Marcy Ross to run it.

Goldberg will now manage not just Skydance’s upcoming film productions — which include the next “Mission: Impossible” film and a reboot of “The Terminator” — but any TV productions Ross brings to bear.

Goldberg joined Skydance from Village Roadshow, where she was president of production and executive-produced “I Am Legend” and “Happy Feet.”

“Since her arrival at Skydance, Dana has proven herself to be an incredibly gifted and talented creative partner and friend,” Ellison said in a statement.  “Her work has been instrumental in Skydance’s success, and I am thrilled to expand our relationship as Skydance continues to grow its business.”
