Attorney Mike Eisner was named senior vice president of legal and business affairs at Hasbro Studios. The former vice president and literary agent at WME Entertainment/William Morris Agency had helped negotiate the multi-picture deal between Hasbro Studios and Universal Pictures.
Eisner's career at William Morris spanned nine years, where he conducted talent, writing, directing, producing and licensing deals, as well as developed TV series and features. He also worked with corporate accounts on brand integration. Prior to that, Eisner has worked as a counsel at Carolco Pictures and an entertainment department associate at Wyman, Bautzer, Kuchel & Silbert.
"Throughout the years, Mike has established a tremendous record of success in every facet of transactional development, production and distribution deal-making," says Stephen Davis, Hasbro Studios' president. "His television, film and music expertise will play a vital role in guiding our growth around the world and I am extremely pleased to have him come on board as a key member of our executive team."
