Range Media Partners adds two to scripted TV division – Deadline
EXCLUSIVE: Range Media Partners has added two key employees to its scripted television division at Range Studios, with Sarah Brownstein joining as Vice President of Scripted Television, and Kathleen Schenck as Creative Director of Scripted Television.
The duo will work under Heather Kadin, president of Scripted Television, who recently joined Range Media Partners after a 12-year stint at Secret Hideout to bolster the company’s television business. These hires follow the strategic investment between Range Media Partners and A+E Networks, which will help build a broad lineup of productions and content for Range Studios’ Scripted Television division.
Prior to joining Range Media Partners, Brownstein was director of Heyday Television US (Once upon a time in Hollywood, Marriage story), developing a series there based on Liane Moriarty’s New York Times #1 bestseller apples never fall and the book by Dolores Redondo The north side of the heart. The NYU graduate also previously worked as a development manager at Jamie Patricoff’s Hunting Lane (blue valentine, I know it’s true) and Fremantle North America (american gods).
Before Range, Schenck worked under Kadin at Secret Hideout – on series such as Star Trek: Picard, Star Trek: Prodigy and The man who fell to earth. Previously, she worked for executive producer John Goldwyn on series such as Dope and Manhunt: Deadly Games. She launched her screenwriting career with 20th Century Fox’s theatrical marketing division after graduating from UCLA.
“As soon as I met Sarah, I knew she was the perfect fit for Range. She has sophisticated taste and deep connections and experience,” Kadin said. Kathleen with me at Range. She was a superstar at Secret Hideout and she’s already proven herself to be a fantastic leader in the short time she’s been here. I am beyond thrilled with this outstanding team and what we are about to build together.
Range Media Partners is a management and production company founded in September 2020, with a clientele spanning film, television, music, literature, technology and activism. A+E Networks acquired a minority stake in the company for about $50 million last March.
