“A Gifted Man” showrunner Neal Baer has tapped former Overture Films exec Jessica Shulman to run his CBS TV Studios-based production shingle Baer Bones Inc.
“Jessica is a savvy executive who has a gift for working with writers and a great sense of storytelling,” Baer said in announcing the appointment. The company will focus on developing new series projects for the studio.
Shulman previously worked in production and acquisitions at Overture. After that company shuttered in 2010, Shulman spent two months volunteering at orphanage in Ethiopia.
