Wasting no time under new leadership, CBS Films named Maria Faillace as the Executive Vice President, Production. This is a promotion from Faillace's previous role as Senior Vice President, Production. Her new role will allow her to oversee production for CBS FIlms' home-grown titles.
“Maria is insightful, hard-working and incredibly passionate about the business of making movies,” says Terry Press, Co-President, CBS Films. “She has strong relationships throughout the industry and a healthy respect for filmmakers.”
In her role as Senior Vice President Faillace developed a series of projects including Takashi Shimizu’s horror thriller “7500,” which is set for release on Aug. 31. She also developed the recently wrapped multi-generational comedy “Get A Job,” from director Dylan Kidd. Prior to joining CBS Films in 2008, Faillace spent eight years at FOX 2000, where she rose to the position of Vice President, Production. Project highlights from her time at FOX include “In Her Shoes,” “Fever Pitch” and “All About Steve.” After she graduated from University of Texas at Austin, Faillace began her career in the industry as the assistant to Mireille Soria and Melissa Cobb.
