Range Media Partners has appointed CBS and 20th Television veterinarian Dan Kupetz as Range Studios’ head of entertainment and legal affairs.
As a partner, Kupetz will cover all aspects of Range Studios’ business, including scripted television, unscripted international content and featured programming, and will work closely with Range’s strategic partners, including A+E Studios and FilmNation.
Most recently, Kupetz has been consulting with commercial executives after a year as executive vice president of commercial affairs and operations at Disney’s 20th Television Studio from March 2020 to February 2021. Before that, Kupetz was with CBS for 20 years, overseeing the studio and broadcast network. At CBS Studios, he oversaw commercial affairs during the studio’s ramp-up of production for the CBS Network and The CW, production expansion into streaming and premium cable, and the development of animation and international production operations.
“We are delighted that Dan Kupetz has joined the Range team!” said Peter Micelli, Managing Partner and CEO of Range Media Partners. “He is one of the most experienced and dynamic executives in our business. We are delighted to have him at Range helping us navigate a complex and ever-changing media landscape.”
“After many years at a major media company, my goal is to work at a dynamic, entrepreneurial and talent-focused company,” adds Kupetz. “Range Media Partners fits the bill perfectly. I couldn’t be more excited and grateful for the opportunity to join Range. I look forward to working closely with Range’s fantastic team of studio executives and managers on a project that showcases Range’s roster of outstanding talent.”
