Peter Stark Producing Program

Over the last twenty years, Jeb Brody has worked across all strata of the film industry—from the indie Sundance hit Little Miss Sunshine, to the studio franchise Fifty Shades of Grey, to the independent-studio financed 1917, and many more. He has a unique history of having been both a studio executive and producer in not just the independent film world, but also with the major studios, including developing and producing tentpoles and multiple Academy Award winning films. 

Brody joined Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Partners in 2017 as the President of Production. There, he oversees a slate of films produced and financed under the company’s Amblin Entertainment and DreamWorks Pictures banners, where he executive produced Sam Mendes’ 1917; the Tom Hanks Apple TV+ science fiction film Finch; several horror films including the low budget Come Play; and many other projects of various size and scope. His development and production slate at Amblin has included first time filmmakers, as well as some of the most recognizable filmmakers in the industry.

Brody came to Amblin from Secret Hideout, where he was an Executive Producer on the most recent reimagining of The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise. Prior to that, he was President of Production at Focus Features, where he oversaw the global production and acquisition team. While there, he was responsible for the adaptation of the massive best-seller Fifty Shades of Grey, as well as the acquisition or production of such diverse films as the Academy Award-winning Dallas Buyers Club; Joe Wright’s Academy Award-winning Anna Karenina; and the Bradley Cooper and Ryan Gosling starrer The Place Beyond the Pines; as well as many more.

Brody is on the board of several film-related organizations, is a member of AMPAS and BAFTA, and is an Adjunct Professor at USC’s Peter Stark Producing Program in the School of Cinematic Arts.
