ELLEN SCHWARTZ has produced and contributed to some of the highest-grossing and beloved films of the last two decades. Schwartz began her career as a DGA trainee working in New York – one of the few women assuming such a role at the time. The first feature film she worked on as a trainee was “The Flamingo Kid,” which was the start of a 25 year friendship and working relationship with Garry Marshall. She worked alongside Marshall as his assistant director and producer on films such as Beaches, Pretty Woman, Runaway Bride, Princess Diaries 1 and 2, Exit to Eden, Dear God, Frankie & Johnny, The Other Sister and Raising Helen. In addition to working with Marshall, Schwartz has had a long working relationship with director Donald Petrie – with whom she began work on the ground-breaking television show, “The Equalizer.” Schwartz and Petrie have collaborated on Miss Congeniality, Just My Luck and How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days, which went on to gross over $175 million worldwide. Her diverse experience has earned her assistant director positions with Paul Verhoeven on Showgirls and Anne Fletcher on the hit films Step Up and 27 Dresses, as well as senior production roles on Drillbit Taylor, Dance Flick and 2010’s boxoffice smash Get Him To The Greek. Ellen was also the executive producer on “Something Borrowed” for Warner Brothers and “You’re Not You” for eOne Films. In 2013, she joined Black Label Media as the Executive VP of Physical Production. She is an executive producer on “The Good Lie”, “Breaking A Monster”, “Sicario” and “Demolition”.
