Leading independent production company Sid Gentle Films has appointed TV and film exec Gina Mingacci as an Executive Producer this week.
The UK indie production company, responsible for high-end dramas including SS-GB and The Durrells, has brought in the former BBC America exec to work across their development slate, as well as serving as Executive Producer on the second season of their critically acclaimed new series Killing Eve. Mingacci will be based in London and her responsibilities will include continuing to develop relationships with US buyers as well as working on Sid’s burgeoning features slate.
Before joining Sid Gentle, Mingacci served as Senior Vice President, Scripted Programming at BBC America, where she oversaw a development team and slate of both domestic and international drama series, including the final two seasons of Emmy award-winning series Orphan Black, and the first season of Killing Eve, written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge and starring Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer.
Previously, Mingacci was Head of Scripted Television at Superb Entertainment developing comedy and drama scripted series for HBO, Fox, Media Rights Capital, Lifetime and Lionsgate. Prior to that, Mingacci developed and produced films for over 15 years and premiered features in and out of competition at Sundance, Toronto and Venice Film Festivals through roles at Independent Pictures, Moxie Pictures, Woods Entertainment/Miramax Films and TriStar Pictures. Notable titles include Austenland, Gummo and The Prime Gig starring Vince Vaughn and Ed Harris.
In 2002, she co-founded O’Salvation Cine, a London and Paris based arts lab and film production company, with visionary filmmaker Harmony Korine and iconic French fashion designer Agnès B.
“We are delighted to welcome Gina to Sid. Having worked with Gina on series one of Killing Eve in her previous role we have seen firsthand her exceptional ability and passion for delivering fantastic, world class drama. Gina has an incredibly strong background in developing and producing impressive narrative content across both television and film, as well as a fantastic understanding of market and audience dynamics on a global platform. She will be a real asset to the team and play an integral role as Sid Gentle continues to create quality drama. We are excited to be working with her.” – Sally Woodward Gentle
