September 18, 2017
LOS ANGELES -- September 18, 2017 -- Jukin Media, the global digital media company built on the belief that the future of storytelling is user generated, has hired Chris Miller, formerly of 51 Minds/ Endemol Shine Group, and Jenna Charles, former Exec In Charge of Production for Fine Brothers Entertainment, to newly created leadership positions in Jukin's production department.
The new hires follow Jukin's recent announcement that it is building out a 14,000+ square foot studio facility adjacent to its Los Angeles headquarters. Miller and Charles bolster the leadership ranks of a Jukin production unit designed to accommodate recent increased demand for Jukin original content.
“Chris and Jenna bring a tremendous wealth of experience and well rounded resumes that include digital media, TV, and filmmaking,” said Jonathan Skogmo, Founder and CEO of Jukin Media. “As we continue to push the boundaries for how stories can be told using user-generated content as a narrative vehicle, Chris and Jenna will be an integral part of those efforts.”
Miller, now Vice President of Digital Production at Jukin, has produced 48 original TV series and more than 3000 episodes of digital programming over the course of his career which, in addition to the aforementioned roles, includes a stint as Executive Producer for National Lampoon.
“I’m here because I believe in Jukin’s mission,” said Miller. “As much success as the company’s had, it feels like we’re just scratching the surface, and that’s an incredibly exciting thing to be a part of.”
With a robust development pipeline that includes original content for TV, SVOD, and brands, Jukin has hired Charles as Executive-in-Charge of Production (EIC) to oversee budgeting and production. Charles has more than a decade of experience in various Line Producer roles including at Fine Brothers Entertainment, T Group Entertainment, and 51 Minds where she collaborated with Miller.
“The creativity and enthusiasm behind Jukin’s production initiatives are palpable,” said Charles. “I can’t wait to help bring these projects to life.”
Charles reports to Miller, while Miller will report to Jonathan Skogmo, Founder and CEO, Jukin Media.
