CBS Films Names Senior VP

Maria Faillace, formerly with Fox 2000 Pictures, joined CBS Films as senior vice president.

She will be responsible for overseeing development and production, reporting to Amy Baer, president of the newly created film division.

The film unit was created in March and plans to produce 4-6 flicks per year at up to $50 million per picture. CBS will distribute the films, but it has yet to create that unit.
