Cineflix Continues to Expand its Scripted Division with the Appointment of Vlad Wolynetz to President Production, Cineflix Studios
Cineflix Studios, the scripted division of international production and distribution company Cineflix, has named veteran production exec Vlad Wolynetz to the position of President of Production. In his new role at Cineflix Studios, Wolynetz will be instrumental in the production of all scripted projects for broadcasters worldwide. Wolynetz reports to Glen Salzman, CEO, Cineflix Media and joins Cineflix Studios in July, from BBC Worldwide Productions.
“We’re delighted to welcome Vlad aboard at this pivotal point in our expansion,” said Salzman. “He’s a consummate pro with multiple award-winning series to his credit. Vlad’s expertise will be invaluable on shows like The Command and many more as we continue to ramp up our slate.”
“Cineflix is an exceedingly well-run and vibrant company with tremendous projects and relationships,” said Wolynetz. “That, combined with my admiration and affection for Christina Wayne, made this an irresistible opportunity.”
Most recently, Wolynetz was Senior Vice President, Scripted Production at BBC Worldwide Productions where he was responsible for overseeing production on the company's scripted slate (including Torchwood) and working with top-level writers and creative talent in the US and the UK. Prior to BBC Worldwide, he was with AMC as Vice President of Production, Series and Movies. In this role, Wolynetz supervised a wide range of series across multiple genres, including the Emmy® and Golden Globe®-winning Mad Men and the Emmy-winning Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, and Broken Trail. It was at AMC that Wolynetz first worked closely with Cineflix Studios President Christina Wayne.
Two weeks ago, Cineflix signaled a major expansion of its UK operations with the appointment of Camilla Lewis to Managing Director of Cineflix Productions UK.
The Command, a scripted series Cineflix is developing for TNT, centers on an elite and real squad of detectives within the New York City police department – Borough Command. These detectives get only the toughest and most notorious cases.
Nick Witkowski represents Cineflix Studios properties internationally and is based in the company’s UK offices.
