Fox Names Jeremy Kramer Exec VP of Production

Moves across the Fox lot after three-year stint at Ben Stiller’s Red Hour

Jeremy Kramer is headed to 20th Century Fox as executive VP of production after a tour of duty at Ben Stiller’s Red Hour Films, a Fox spokesman confirmed.

Kramer, who served on the Fox lot at Red Hour since 2007, previously worked as a creative executive at DreamWorks.

At Fox, he’ll report to president of production Emma Watts. 

“Jeremy has an excellent track record, particularly within the comedy arena,” Watts said, in a statement. “And he has a deep bench of relationships within the industry, which is testament to the way he conducts his business."

Added Kramer: "Not only do I get to return to the studio world, but also at Fox I can continue my close collaboration with Ben and Stuart (Cornfeld) at Red Hour."

Kramer began his career as an independent producer in New York in 1995, working on Noah Baumback's first feature, "Kicking and Screaming."

After a stint at Miramax, he joined DreamWorks in 2004, and he was heavily involved with projects including the Will Ferrell comedy "Blades of Glory," a title produced by Red Hour … which was located on the DreamWorks lot at the time.

In terms of upcoming projects, he is listed as an executive producer on David Frankel's "The Big Year," starring Jack Black, Owen Wilson and Steve Martin, and due out next year from Fox.

He's also producing "Zombieland" filmmaker Ruben Fleischer's next project, "30 Minutes Or Less," starring Jesse Eisenberg, Danny McBride, Aziz Ansari and Nick Swardson.
