Paramount Global Names Syrinthia Studer as EVP of International Productions

Syrinthia Studer has joined Paramount’s global content licensing division as Executive Vice President (EVP) of international productions.

After being promoted from serving as EVP of Nickelodeon and Awesomeness Films, she will now oversee content strategy, development and production of local language and micro-budget films for the studio’s new business unit. Her purview will focus on originals and culturally specific local language remakes sourced from Paramount Pictures’ film library, with projects releasing via limited theatrical or direct-to-consumer platforms globally. Studer will be based in Los Angeles and report to Dan Cohen, chief content licensing officer for Paramount Global. She will manage a team of creatives in both domestic and international markets.

“Syrinthia has incredible creative instincts to find stories in which audiences around the globe will relate,” said Cohen. “We are thrilled to have her join our division and look forward to the world-class content that she and the team develop.”

“Great stories know no boundaries,” said Studer. “I’m excited to join Dan’s team to launch this business and look forward to working with filmmakers around the world to help bring local language, culturally rich films to a global audience.

Studer has worked across Paramount brands for over 20 years. Productions launched during her tenure at Nickelodeon and Awesomeness Films include upcoming sports family comedy Fantasy Football starring Marsai Martin, The J Team starring and executive produced by JoJo Siwa, and the upcoming comedy film Honor Society, starring Angourie Rice and Gaten Matarazzo.

Studer also previously served as Paramount Pictures’ Executive Vice President, Worldwide Acquisitions, where she oversaw the global content acquisitions business, acquiring films for domestic and international theatrical release and distribution across multiple platforms including streaming and digital VOD. Among her notable acquisitions are the breakout comedy Book Club, starring Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton, Mary Steenburgen and Candice Bergen, which grossed $100M at the worldwide box office; Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, to which she acquired home media rights via a multi-picture relationship with IFC Films; as well as numerous internationally distributed film festival favorites.

Previously, Studer held senior strategic marketing and acquisitions roles at Paramount, in addition to new business development with theatre chain Loews Cineplex Entertainment.

Paramount Global Content Distribution is a leading distributor of premium content across multiple media platforms throughout the global marketplace. The division’s portfolio is comprised of some of the world’s most recognized brands, including feature films and television programs from Paramount Pictures, Paramount Television Studios, CBS Studios, CBS Media Ventures, CBS News, Showtime Networks, Nickelodeon, MTV Entertainment Studios, Miramax and third-party partners.
