EXCLUSIVE: Jenny Wood joins Taylor Sheridan’s Bosque Ranch as president.
For the past 10 years, Wood has served as a partner at Elevate Entertainment, where he managed, among others, Sheridan. She began her career at ICM Partners under veteran agent Martha Luttrell before moving into production and working for Blumhouse.
In addition to Wood’s appointment, Nell Whalen will become Director of Development and Manufacturing and Grace Morton will remain Vice President. This comes at a particularly busy time for Sheridan, who will be back on November 13th Yellowstone for a fifth season and the same night launches the Sylvester Stallone starrer Tulsa King. The second season of the Jeremy Renner starrer Mayor of Kingstown is in production, as is the Harrison Ford-Helen Mirren Dutton dynasty drama 1923. There are several other series that seep through and go fast, including the David Oyelowo starrer Bass Reeves, which is in pre-production. Bosque Ranch produces it with 101 Studios.
“It has been an incredible privilege to work with Taylor since the beginning of his career as a writer and director,” said Wood. “This move has felt like a natural progression for quite some time and I am very excited to grow our slate and continue to create excellent television and features with our partners at 101 Studios and Viacom.”
Sheridan said: “From the beginning of our relationship, the plan for Jenny and I was to build a business that tells impactful and relevant stories for both television and film. It took ten years, but we made that plan a reality.”
Sheridan is represented by CAA and LBI.
