In a move to grow its cable, broadcast and Broadway programming, Fathom Events has tapped TV programming executive Andrew Goldman as VP of programming.

Based in New York, Goldman will acquire high-value content with broad audience appeal which will play at exhibition chains which play Fathom Events content.

Recently Fathom Events broke box office records with Warner Bros.’ Peter Jackson’s WWI documentary They Shall Not Grow Old which in its Dec. 27 encore presentation grossed $3.1M, making it the highest-grossing single-day ever for a documentary on Fathom, and one of the top-grossing single-night presentations of any kind from the events company.

Prior to joining Fathom Events, Goldman was SVP/Head of Programming at OWNZONES Entertainment Technologies, a global provider of technology and media solutions for the motion picture, television and digital content creation industries. Earlier in his career, he was VP of Program Strategy and Planning for HBO/Cinemax and was instrumental in the launches of HBO Now, HBO Go, Max Go and Video on Demand.

“We are thrilled to continue growing our programming team with the addition of Andrew,” said Nancy Silverstone, Fathom Events VP of Programming. “His expertise and experience will help Fathom further our goal of distributing the best content in the event cinema industry.”

“I am very excited to join the team at Fathom Events as we bring exciting, top-notch entertainment to theaters that appeals to both broad and specialty audiences,” said Goldman.
