Chris Philip: Chief Executive
Executive Producer and veteran international TV executive Chris Philip currently serves as CEO of Sierra/Engine Television, a joint venture launched in late 2012 between Engine Entertainment and Nick Meyer's independent feature film company, Sierra/Affinity. Philip is Executive Producer of NBC's primetime drama series "Siberia" and Tribune Broadcasting's 20 episode action/adventure series "SAF3" starring Dolph Lundgren.
In 2009, Philip co-founded Engine Entertainment, an international production and distribution company that represented a library of content across all genres and co-produced both scripted and non scripted projects on a global scale. In 2010, he entered into a strategic partnership with Ben Silverman's Electus and helped them start an international division and spearhead a scripted series initiative.
Prior to Engine, Philip was President of Worldwide Sales and Distribution at Power Television, based in London. During his tenure, Philip increased the company's revenues and successfully pitched and secured a 13 episode series order from NBC for "Crusoe" (which he also executive produced) as well as a two part mini-series entitled "XIII: The Conspiracy". "Crusoe" marked the first time a US broadcaster made a direct-to-series order from a European company, which ultimately helped change the US network co-production and pre-sales model.
Philip also served as Vice President of NBC Universal International. During a successful track record spanning 13 years at the studio, he managed a library of more than 10,000 hours of film and TV programming ("Jurassic Park," "Gladiator," "Fast and the Furious," Law and Order", "Monk"), restructured the sales and administration teams for his region, and closed significant output deals with broadcasters, which resulted in exponential growth for the company.
