Doug Belgrad is an American film and television producer. He was previously an executive at Sony for nearly 27 years before founding 2.0 Entertainment, a film and television production and co-financing company based at Sony.[1] He is known for supervising films such as Men in Black and Bad Boys for Sony Pictures.

Early life[edit]

Belgrad was raised in Highland Park, Illinois.[2] His father owned and operated a furniture manufacturing business founded by his grandfather.[2] He graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1987 with a bachelor's degree in history. He began his career at Kidder, Peabody as a securities analyst, specializing in media and entertainment companies, before joining Columbia Pictures in 1989.


Sony Pictures[edit]

In 2008, he was named co-president of production at Sony Pictures Entertainment with Matt Tolmach.[3][4][5] In 2010, Tolmach left Sony Pictures Entertainment and Belgrad was named as sole president of the studio.[4][5] Belgrad worked on The Karate Kid (2010 film), which was the second co-production between a Hollywood studio and a Chinese studio, and the first shot entirely on the mainland.[6] In June 2016, it was announced that Belgrad would be leaving Sony to move into a producing role.[7]

2.0 Entertainment[edit]

Under the 2.0 Entertainment banner, Belgrad produces and co-finances a number of Sony movies, including the recent Peter Rabbit which has grossed over $300 million worldwide.[8]

2.0 is building a television production arm, with projects including L.A.'s Finest, starring Jessica Alba and Gabrielle Union.[9]
