Parent's pal new MGM vp


MGM continued its rebuilding Thursday under new boss Mary Parent, appointing Becky Sloviter vp production.

Sloviter comes from Parent's Stuber/Parent Prods., where she had been a production executive since its inception in 2006. Among her credits is "Mentors," starring Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott, which is in postproduction.

Sloviter will report to MGM chair Parent, who last week left Stuber/Parent to join the studio in its efforts to rebuild its development slate and theatrical production strength.

Those efforts also included the hire of New Line executive Cale Boyter as executive vp production (HR 3/27).

Parent praised Sloviter for her strong relationship with writers, directors and actors as well as her skills in producing.

Sloviter started her career at Endeavor, then worked at Universal Studios before joining Stuber/Parent.
