Abdy abdicates Par role to oversee Stuber


Paramount executive vp production Pam Abdy has been hired to run Stuber Prods., Scott Stuber's production shingle at Universal.

She joins Alexa Faigen, Jon Mone, Andy Davis and Rick Solomon and will oversee day-to-day development and production for the company.

"I've known Scott a long time and am excited to join his company and continue producing movies with him, something we began when I was at Jersey and he was at Universal," Abdy said.

"Pam's talent, expertise and energy will be a perfect fit for our company," Stuber said.

Beginning in 1995, Abdy rose from being an intern at Danny DeVito's Jersey Films to his assistant to, ultimately, president of production. She became a production vp at Paramount in 2003.

In 2006, she was promoted to executive vp production, where she reported to Brad Weston and had a reputation for being adept at pushing movies through to greenlights. Her credits include "Babel" and "World Trade Center." (partialdiff)
