The president and chief content officer of film, television and digital for Entertainment One is in talks to exit the post, Variety reports. The news comes after what’s described as conflict between Mark Gordon, a veteran film and television producer, and senior managers at the British-Canadian indie.
“Entertainment One is said to be pushing Gordon out after it became clear that he was ill-suited to the role of managing a large organization,” Variety reports, quoting a source close to the situation saying: “They were unhappy together.”
Variety adds: “It’s still unclear if Gordon will have any ties to E One as a producer although a source said there was hope that Gordon could shift into a creative-focused role while turning more management duties over to Peter Micelli, the former CAA agent who joined E One as chief strategy officer for film, TV and digital in February 2018.”
A spokeswoman for Entertainment One is quoted saying: “While we don’t comment on internal organizational discussions, we can say that Mark Gordon continues to be a very important part of the eOne team now and into the future.”
