Kris is a 20+ year veteran line producer (creative physical production), focussed primarily in scripted half-hour single camera television comedies, but that wasn't always the case. The majority of his professional career was in short format media (commercials, music videos, promos, etc) at Soapbox Films where he spent over a decade as VP of Production. In 2015 he transitioned to scripted television with the pilot of The Muppets for ABC. Since that time, Kris has produced nearly 100 episodes of broadcast television, including 6 pilots (selected credits include ABC's The Real O'Neals, The Kids Are Alright and NBC's Sunnyside). Kris is currently producing season 2 of Dave for FX. Kris' introduction to the business came at 12 years old when he earned his SAG card guest starring on television shows & commercials. He holds a BFA from Florida State University's College of Motion Picture Arts.
Kris genuinely loves his work and is excited to share his knowledge as so many have shared their knowledge with him. Kris will be donating 25% of all Sidetime proceeds to P.S. Arts helping bring arts education into under served public schools.
He is an active member of the Producers Guild of America and the Television Academy of Arts & Sciences. He is represented by Janet Carol Norton of ICM Partners.

I regularly encounter crew - from Directors and Writers to Department Heads and Cast - who are interested in bettering their working relationship with their line producers. The idea behind this call is to break down any “walls” between producers and the rest of the team to encourage open discussion and tools to get the most out of the relationship with your line producer. I can tailor the call to suit your position whether you’re a[n aspiring] line producer or not.Schedule a Call

Let’s chat about getting your start in the film business from the perspective of the person who approves all crew hires. We can chat about your short and long term goals in the business.

Commonly people working in above-the-line positions (or really any crew member) can have difficulty transitioning between formats but I've had the good fortune to work in many genres from non-broadcast industrials to feature films and everything in between. After 15 years of focusing primarily in short format (commercials, music videos, promos) I transitioned to producing scripted broadcast comedies full-time in 2015. In this call we can chat about where you are in your career and where you'd like to go.Schedule a Call
