Navid McIlhargey has joined Storied Media Group as President of Scripted & Client Partnerships. The hire was made by founder/CEO Todd Hoffman. McIlhargey will develop and set up projects for clients that include Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, NPR, Smithsonian, and The Guardian. A former exec at New Regency, Silver Pictures and Revolution Studios, McIlhargey most recently ran his own production company, Vandal Entertainment. There, he produced the Jonathan Mostow-directed The Hunter’s Prayer with Sam Worthington. His producing credits include the Guy Ritchie-directed RocknRolla.
Said Hoffman: “Investing in someone at Navid’s level shows how much we value the IP our clients are creating. Navid can smell a great story a mile away and has the hustle and relationships to make great projects happen. I am so excited he joined.”
McIlhargey called SMG “a stand-alone model in the business. In 2018, where IP is a key driver for creating content, it’s incredibly exciting to be in business with such esteemed high-end clients.”
Storied Media Group has set up over 80 film/TV projects and last year sold a minority interest last year to German distributor Tele München Group.
