Kingdom Studios has recruited Mona Garcea to head up its television arm.
Garcea has long worked alongside Chuck Lorre, having served as a producer on “Mike & Molly,” “The Big Bang Theory,” “Two and a Half Men,” and “Disjointed.” Garcea will find and develop family entertainment with broad commercial appeal for the studio and will report to co-CEOs Kevin Downes and Jon Erwin, who have an overall deal at Lionsgate.
Kingdom, which specializes in developing and producing inspirational and faith-based entertainment, was founded late last year by Jon and Andrew Erwin, Kevin Downes and Tony Young, the filmmakers behind Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions’ “I Can Only Imagine.” The studio’s first film, “I Still Believe,” will be released in March 2020.
“Creating entertaining, inspirational and uplifting programming for television is what I have been dreaming about and joining forces with Jon, Andrew, Kevin and Tony at Kingdom is truly a dream come true,” Garcea said.
“As we launch our television division with Mona, we could not be in better or more capable hands. She has been on the front-line of producing some of the best-loved and most successful series on television and she has been mentored by one of the most successful producers in the business. We could not be more thrilled or excited to welcome Mona to the Kingdom Family,” Jon and Andrew Erwin said.
“Mona’s reputation as a consummate creative producer in the television business is second to no one. She has a spectacular reputation throughout the industry for her work with talent, showrunners and crew. She is an outstanding addition to our team,” Downes said.
