Jeremy Gold

Co-President

Blumhouse Television

Jeremy Gold is co-President of Blumhouse Television. Gold (along with co-President Marci Wiseman) is growing the footprint of Blumhouse’s independent television studio, managing its portfolio of scripted and unscripted TV series, supervising creative development and production and overseeing distribution strategies across all platforms. Gold and Wiseman are leading the expansion of the Blumhouse brand beyond horror content to explore not only genre material, but also dark, provocative subject matter with projects like Loudest Voice in the Room, the Roger Ailes story for Showtime with Oscar-winning writer/director Tom McCarthy, based on the book by acclaimed journalist, Gabe Sherman.

Since joining Blumhouse in 2016, Gold and Wiseman successfully concluded a capital raise of $40 million and currently have close to $100m in annual production revenue. During that time, the company has launched series including Sharp Objects for HBO (based on Gillian Flynn's novel from Marti Noxon and Jean-Marc Valle and starring Amy Adams); Sacred Lies for Facebook Watch (from Raelle Tucker and Scott Winant); The Purge for USA/Syfy based on the successful Purge film franchise; and is currently in production on Into The Dark, a first-of-its-kind
12 episode monthly horror anthology series for Hulu; No One Saw a Thing (w/t), a true crime documentary series for SundanceTV; another documentary series for f/x with acclaimed Jinx producer, Marc Smerling and featuring Errol Morris, and an unnamed real-time crime investigative series for Oxygen. Blumhouse Television has also earned critical acclaim and numerous honors for its dark, edgy fare including Emmy awards for its productions of HBO's The Normal Heart and The Jinx, as well as the prestigious Peabody award for The Jinx and the documentary
How to Dance in Ohio.

Gold and Wiseman have also built a significant feature-length documentary division, with five projects currently in development and completed documentaries in the marketplace, including This Is Home, the 2018 Sundance Audience Award winner (World Documentaries), aired on EPIX in June of 2018 and Bathtubs Over Broadway, which was awarded the Albert Maysles New Documentary Director Award at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival and won the Documentary Feature Audience Award at 23rd annual Nantucket Film Festival.

Gold has had a long and successful career-launching popular television programming for broadcast and cable networks. He joined Blumhouse in 2016 from Endemol Shine Studios where he was Executive Vice President. During his tenure there, he introduced Endemol USA into the scripted television space first as a production company, and later as a studio, launching Endemol Studios in 2012. Gold oversaw the development, financing, and production of a broad slate which included the long-running award-winning AMC drama series Hell on Wheels, format adaptations Low Winter Sun (AMC) and Red Widow (ABC), Kingdom (ATT/DirecTV), and I’m Dying Up Here (Showtime).

Prior to Endemol, Gold held senior leadership positions at both Twentieth Century Fox Television and FOX Broadcasting Company, where he developed numerous comedy series including the Emmy Award winning Arrested  Development and The Bernie Mac Show, as well as American Dad, and the hit reality show The Simple Life.

A graduate of Northwestern University, Gold began his career as an actor and theatrical producer. He founded and served as Artistic Director of New York City’s award-winning Zena Group Theatre.

Gold was featured in The Hollywood Reporter’s Next Generation List of 2002.
