Momentum Entertainment Restructures, Focuses On Scripted, Steven Marrs Out

EXCLUSIVE: Changes are afoot at Momentum Entertainment Group, the entertainment company launched in 2011 by marketing agency Momentum Worldwide, parent company of Hollywood PR agency PMK*BNC, which Momentum has been funding through its Inter Public Group. Momentum Entertainment Group president Steven Marrs is out. Additionally, Momentum Entertainment’s unscripted division headed by Chuck Dalaklis has been dissolved. I hear the entertainment division is being reorganized into scripted, the part of the company that has done well. Under scripted head Nick Hamm, Momentum Entertainment has landed two series orders, for Rogue and Full Circle at DirecTV, and has several other series in the works, including The Seeker for Warner Bros. Digital.

Marrs, who brought with him his production company Branded Pictures, headed Momentum Entertainment Group and its three divisions: Momentum Entertainment, Artist & Brand and Branded Pictures. I hear he has been let go because of performance-related reasons. As for Dalaklis, he is expected to keep a relationship with Momentum while producing through his own production company going forward.
