CELEBRITY

JEAN DOUMANIAN (Producer) has a long and successful career in film, theatre and television. The past year has brought a host of successes, including "The Spanish Prisoner," the new film by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and critically acclaimed filmmaker David Mamet. Ms. Doumanian also produced Woody Allen's "Deconstructing Harry," which opened last year's Venice Film Festival and was released in the United States by Fine Line Features. Also at Venice last year was another of Ms. Doumanian's productions, "Wild Man Blues," the documentary by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Barbara Kopple. Released by Fine Line earlier this year, "Wild Man Blues" opened to critical praise. And, Ms. Doumanian's presence in the theatre has been particularly strong this year; "Dinah Was," her musical about blues great Dinah Washington, is an Off-Broadway hit.

Ms. Doumanian was the Executive Producer of several of Mr. Allen's previous films, including "Everyone Says I Love You," "Mighty Aphrodite" (which received an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress) and "Bullets Over Broadway" (which received seven Academy Award nominations and won for Best Supporting Actress).

As well as "Celebrity," Ms. Doumanian has also recently produced "Into My Heart," a film written and directed by two young filmmakers named Sean Smith and Anthony Stark and starring Claire Forlani and Rob Morrow; the new directional effort by Jason Alexander entitled "Cherry Pink," starring Gretchen Mol and Patti Lupone; "The Story of a Bad Boy," the first film written and directed by critically acclaimed playwright Tom Donaghy; and "Sunburn," coming-of-age comedy by first time filmmaker Nelson Hume.

Ms. Doumanian's career in various mediums is impressive. She produced Sven Nykvist's "The Ox," an Academy Award-nominated film which starred Liv Ullman and Max Von Sydow, as well as a number of projects outside the film arena which have garnered a great deal of praise. The Off-Broadway play "Death Defying Acts," which Ms. Doumanian produced broke boxoffice records, and Woody Allen's first film for television, "Don't Drink The Water," was executive produced by Ms. Doumanian. As producer of "Saturday Night Live," she discovered Eddie Murphy, among others. Ms. Doumanian also produced the classic TV special "Bob and Ray, Jane and Gilda," and received an Emmy for "The Dick Cavett Show." Jean Doumanian Productions is based in New York City.
