Jonathan Glickman will join Miramax as its CEO, the film and TV studio officially said Tuesday. The executive will assume the role effective immediately.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported Glickman was in talks for the new role in January. Glickman replaces former CEO Bill Block, who departed last year after a six-year run.

As part of the new job, Miramax has also acquired certain film, television and other projects of Panoramic Media, the independent film and TV production company founded by Glickman in 2020. While at Panoramic, Glickman produced Amazon/MGM’s Creed 3 and The Underdoggs, and executive produced Netflix’s Wednesday. He is also currently exec producing the Netflix limited series Zero Day, starring Robert De Niro and Angela Bassett. 

“With its world-renowned library and the united desire from its shareholders to produce IP-based as well as original projects, Miramax is uniquely placed to be the leading independent film and television studio for the years to come,” Glickman said in a statement. “I cannot wait to join Miramax’s dedicated team, alongside my partners at beIN and Paramount Global, and continue this company’s tradition of creating unforgettable stories for film, TV and beyond.”

Glickman served as motion group president at MGM for nine years, where under his tenure, James Bond became a billion-dollar franchise. He also shepherded the rejuvenation of the Rocky franchise, relaunching it as the Creed movie series starring Michael B. Jordan. He departed the studio at the top of 2020 for a first-look producing deal with MGM, and two years later launched Panoramic Media.

Harvey and Bob Weinstein founded Miramax in 1979. It was owned by Disney until 2010, when it moved to Qatar-based sports and entertainment company BeIn, which has a 51 percent stake, and Paramount, which owns the other 49 percent.

“We are proud how Miramax has developed under our ownership into a leading independent movie and TV studio; and we are delighted to appoint Jonathan to continue this trajectory of growth and fantastic award-winning success,” said Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, chairman of beIN.

He continued, “Jonathan’s leadership will see Miramax broaden our already-extensive IP base and build upon our commitment to compelling original content. We will also focus on expanding Miramax’s footprint across the globe, with local storytelling and production outside of Hollywood, across movies and series. Together with our partners at Paramount, we welcome Jonathan to the team and look forward to continued creativity, innovation and growth.”

Brian Robbins, president and CEO of Paramount Pictures, added: “I’ve known and worked with Jonathan for over two decades and I couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome him in this new role. With his combination of creative and commercial instincts, he will undoubtedly build on Miramax’s recent successes and deliver a new generation of iconic hit films and series. Under his leadership, Miramax is poised to build on its incredible legacy of top-tier library properties, films and television projects. Along with our partners at beIN, we are confident in Jonathan’s ability to lead Miramax into the future.”
