EXCLUSIVE: Cultivate Entertainment Partners has hired Devorah Moos Hankin as a producer, promoting Robert Szertics to VP of Management.
In her new role at Cultivate, veteran film and TV producer Hankin will continue producing, while overseeing the management and production company’s growing development slate. As a representative of Swedish descent, Szertics will continue to bridge the gap between Scandinavia and Hollywood for the company partially based in Oslo, concentrating on the crossover market for artists in television and film, while managing traditional talent.

“I am thrilled to join Cultivate and a team of the most dedicated professionals and enthusiastic advocates, each committed to creating exceptional content reflective of diverse perspectives and voices,” said Hankin.
“I’m honored and very excited about my new role where I’ll not only get to help my clients reach their career goals but also have the opportunity to support the team and the company to grow to their full potential,” added Szertics.
Hankin has been working as a producer since leaving TriStar Television, where she was a consultant heading up development after serving as Senior Vice President of Movies & Limited Series at Sony Pictures Television.
