Genre Films, usually credited as Kinberg Genre, is the production company founded by screenwriter-producer-director Simon Kinberg.

History[edit]

Genre Films in April 2010 signed a first-look deal with 20th Century Fox,[1] which gave Fox "direct access" to ideas by Kinberg.[2]

Aditya Sood became president of production, and Josh Feldman became director of development.

In December 2013, Genre Films renewed its deal with Fox for three additional years.[3]

In 2016, the studio made its first leap onto television when ABC picked up Designated Survivor to series.[4]

In July 2019, it was announced that Kinberg and his production company Genre Films is leaving Fox after 20 years.[5]
