Film and TV producer Ryan D. Smith has been named president of production and development at Streamline Global, the company announced Thursday.
The genre title producer (‘The Box Cutter,” C. Thomas Howell’s “The Rack Pack”) has tapped Smith to oversee both the film and TV slates.
“Ryan’s production expertise and vast network make him a valuable partner. Streamline’s mission is to utilize our financial model to uplift global consciousness, and we are thrilled to be growing with a seasoned producer whose values are in alignment with our own,” said Emily Hunter Salveson, Streamline’s founder and CEO.
“I am excited to build upon the innovative financing structure that Streamline Global has implemented over the years,” said Smith, currently at the Toronto International Film Festival looking for product.
“As the company keeps growing, we’re here at TIFF looking for more American film projects to add to our slate this coming year. With our groundbreaking model, we aim at shifting the traditional financial model of film and television investments,” said Smith.
Upcoming projects at the company include Jennifer DeLia’s Maria Pickford biopic starring Sophie Kennedy Clark, Cary Elwes and Balthazar Getty.
