Chairman and CEO
Gil Goldschein serves as Chairman and CEO of Bunim/Murray Productions (BMP) and is responsible for the continued growth of the 30+ year-old company as both a production studio and on the international stage. Combining business and creative acumen, and with sole greenlight authority on the company’s projects, he has been instrumental in setting and guiding the company’s vision regarding both network and global expansion.
During his tenure, Gil has expanded the scope of BMP’s offerings by developing and overseeing exclusive production output deals while extending the company's digital reach with award winning and top-viewed programming for partners such as Netflix, Facebook Watch, and Snapchat.
Gil was elevated from President in April 2015 and before that served as General Counsel, negotiating an unprecedented number of development and production deals. Gil also played a key role in expanding BMP’s global footprint by negotiating Banijay Group’s acquisition of the company in 2010, providing BMP with access to Banijay’s international formats and Banijay with distribution of BMP formats to the international marketplace.
Gil was included in The Hollywood Reporter’s 15th Annual Next Generation Class of 2008, honoring executives 35 and under. The Association of Media & Entertainment Counsel recognized Goldschein’s deal-making prowess with the PWC Brandhorst Memorial Dealmaker Award.
