Veteran Hollywood executive Tom Sherak has a new role: Los Angeles film czar.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti on Thursday appointed Sherak to be his senior film advisor and help stem the flow of production that has taken a toll on the city’s signature film and television business.
Sherak, the former president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, will lead Garcetti’s efforts to make L.A. more film friendly and persuade state lawmakers to do more to support the state’s entertainment industry, the mayor said in a statement.
