She is an extraordinary business leader and we are very fortunate to have her joining us. Courtney is a respected entertainment executive who has a unique understanding in all aspects of our business. And Amy is the best producer on the ground and an invaluable member of our team.”

In its four-decade run in the motion picture, television and streaming business, MPCA says it has generated total global revenue of more than $1.5 billion. The company has increasingly been focused on family-friendly content, supplying titles to Peacock, CBS, Netflix, Paramount, Hallmark Channel, Amazon and other outlets. It produced the Netflix original film Falling for Christmas with Lindsay Lohan, as well as Netflix’s The Christmas Prince trilogy, The Princess Switch trilogy and Holiday in the Wild with Rob Lowe and Kristin Davis.
