While VanDusen’s career in entertainment has spanned two decades, he only set his sights on film and television production in 2015, having worked prior to that as an international concert buyer, promoter and global tour manager.

“We’re very excited to have Garrett joining our team,” Krevoy told Deadline. “He has a tremendous amount of experience that will help bolster our already robust production slate.”

Over the course of its 37 years in the business, MPCA has produced more than 200 projects for film and TV, finding success in a wide variety of genres, from family-friendly entertainment to big commercial comedies. Most recently, the company unveiled the Janeen Damian-directed rom-com Irish Wish, starring Lindsay Lohan and Ed Speleers, which hit #1 in 69 countries in its first weekend on Netflix. Next set to hit the platform is MPCA’s Mother of the Bride, starring Brooke Shields, Benjamin Bratt and Miranda Cosgrove, which debuts May 9.

Also set for release in 2024, MPCA has two films for Republic Pictures: Tiffany Paulsen’s romantic comedy Winter Spring Summer or Fall, starring Jenna Ortega, as well as The Image of You, starring Sasha Pieterse, Parker Young, Nestor Carbonell and Mira Sorvino. Pic is the first of two projects under a deal with bestselling UK author Adele Parks MBE, the second of which is The Stranger in My Home.
