From the press release...

Codeblack Films, a Lionsgate company, has hired veteran film and television producer Paul Hall as Head of Development and Production, the Company announced today.

Hall’s 20+ years of credits include films such as Tyler Perry’s Temptation, For Colored Girls, Madea’s Witness Protection, Good Deeds, Shaft and Higher Learning, among others. 

In his new position, Hall will work closely with Codeblack Films’ President Jeff Clanagan and General Manager Quincy Newell to expedite the development of key properties for production and theatrical release for the studio. He has recently wrapped production on Addicted based on the popular book by Zane for Lionsgate.

Paul has a superb track record as a creative force in our industry, and his addition to our team broadens Codeblack’s influence, expands our capabilities and advances our mission to serve the African-American market with a diverse range of branded quality content,” said Clanagan. “His wealth of experience will further Codeblack’s efforts to conceive, produce, market and distribute film properties that represent and articulate the African-American community’s cultural experience worldwide.

I was attracted to Codeblack by their unique understanding of the evolving African-American market and their commitment to serve this market with films that portray African-Americans in a positive light,” said Hall.  “At a time when the multicultural market is exerting greater influence on global entertainment, media and technology trends than ever before, Codeblack has emerged as one of the most dynamic and exciting players in this critical space.

The deal was negotiated by Fox Rothschild LLP’s Darrell D. Miller on behalf of Mr. Hall with Quincy Newell, Codeblack Films’ General Manager who also recruited Hall. Brett Pugliese, Lionsgate’s VP of Business and Legal Affairs, and business affairs executive Greg Snodgrass, of Business Affairs Inc. handled legal duties on behalf of Codeblack Films.

On Codeblack's upcoming slate are Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain, out on July 3, Charles Murray's drama Things Never Said, and George Tillman, Jr.’s The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete.
