Production Company Culture House Announces West Coast Expansion – Deadline

exclusive: Film and television production company Culture House is expanding its offices to Los Angeles along with two new key employees.

Co-founder Carrie Twigg will lead the West Coast office for the growing portfolio of projects. She is joined by a new employee, Jaimie Woo, who is hired as a senior development producer reporting to Twigg. Woo will lead the development of the company’s premium documentary and unrecorded listing. She will also act as a Principal Consultant in House of Culture Consulting.

Twigg and Woo previously worked together in the White House during the Obama administration of then Vice President Joe Biden. Prior to joining House of Culture, Wu worked for Emmy Award-nominated director/writer Sam Ismail.

Kristi Lutz has been appointed as Executive Director in charge of production to oversee the growing demand for managing productions across a slate of premium documentary content, unrecorded and unbranded content. She will be based in New York and will report to co-founder Nicole Galovsky. Prior to Culture House, Lutz held creative positions at HBO, Adult Swim, and Univision producing original content for broadcast, streaming, and the web.

The Culture House’s West Coast expansion now has 25 employees between coasts as the company prepares to launch its podcast and screenplay divisions through 2022. The Black and Brown and Women-owned production company was founded in 2019 by executive producer Raeshem Nijhon, and co-founders Carri Twigg, president of development and Nicole Galovsky, Head of Production, has become the go-to company for talent looking into the TV and film industry with a message. Twigg will move on to head the LA House of Culture, while Nijhon and Galovski will continue to head its New York City headquarters.

“I am delighted once again to be Jaimie Fellows, particularly in the new Iteration: Storytelling at the Intersection of Popular Culture and Politics. Jaimie’s rare blend of creativity and depth of understanding of contemporary America makes her a perfect fit for Culture House as we continue to expand our outstanding document, unwritten menu, and building consultancy cultural,” Twigg said.

“We are delighted to work with Kristi – her creative approach to operations coupled with her production experience in both unscripted and written content is an invaluable asset to nurture our growing roster of projects,” Galovsky said.

Culture House has several projects currently in production for Netflix, Disney+ and Hulu including Poetry tales, an intimate exploration of black women, beauty and identity through the distinctive lens of black hair, set to premiere this summer. The series is a co-production with the Onyx and OWN group of executive producers Tracee Ellis Ross and Michaela Angela Davis. Produced by Joy Mill Entertainment, Culture House, Tetravision and Harpo Films. Resham Nejon, Carrie Twigg, and Oprah Winfrey also serve as executive producers.

WME Culture House and Daniel Benge are represented at Fox Rothschild LLP.
