Putnam tops production at Miramax

Miramax Films president Daniel Battsek has lured Keri Putnam from HBO Films to Miramax, where she will become the company's president of production. Putnam will move into the post next month, filling a vacancy that has remained open since Battsek took over Miramax in the fall. At Miramax, the Walt Disney Co.'s specialty film unit, Putnam will oversee day-to-day development and production of the studio's annual slate of films. Putnam had been at HBO for more than two decades. There, she was executive vp responsible for overseeing the development and production of HBO Films. (Borys Kit and Sheigh Crabtree)
