MUMBAI: Global Entertainment Holdings has roped in motion picture and television producer Daniel A. Sherkow as the chief operating officer of Global Universal Entertainment, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary and the U.S. production arm of GBHL.
GBHL CEO Gary Rasmussen said, “Our U.S. film operations will now be lead by a man that knows every facet of the entertainment and motion picture business. Dan has arranged financing and produced successful and award winning films for ABC, NBC and CBS television, Time-Life Films, Paramount Pictures, Tri-Star Pictures, and Dick Clark Productions. Dan has also produced numerous successful Broadway projects and has advised foreign concerns such as Seoul Movie, the Korean animation company and The China Film Group, Corp., the official government agency of The People’s Republic of China, on financing, distribution and production of major motion pictures.”
Following senior management positions at NBC Television and Time-Life Films, and then Vice President, Production at Paramount Pictures and Tri-Star Pictures, Sherkow produced the feature motion picture Suspect.
Sherkow recently financed and produced the feature motion picture Being Michael Madsen, starring Michael Madsen, Daryl Hannah, Harry Dean Stanton, Virginia Madsen, and David Carradine
Global Universal Entertainment COO Daniel A. Sherkow said, “Our unique financing strategy coupled with mitigating investor risk has certainly been proven correct. Three major motion pictures financed and completed in less than fifteen months in this uncertain economy speaks volumes as to the GBHL development strategy. GBHL’s first two pictures, Blue Seduction and American Sunset have been successful and we expect continued success and profitability with the Murder/Horror thriller Plaster Rock.”
Sherkow added, “Joining the Global Universal team was an easy decision. The people involved with GBHL have, literally, a lifetime of experience in the film business and their reputations are impeccable. I wanted to get in on the ground floor to be a part of building a major motion picture company.”
