“Work hard and someone will notice.”
Christine Peters often works behind the scenes, but she is one of Hollywood’s shining stars. She has been responsible for overseeing and producing some of the industry’s most recognizable films. After she was recruited by an LA distribution company for a position as a Vice President of Foreign Sales and Distribution, Christine packed her bags, said goodbye to London, and headed to the US. After proving her talent, she shifted to the Guber-Peters Company to work as a behind-the-scenes development executive. At Guber-Peters, she worked on the blockbuster film, Gorillas in the Mist, and the 1989 Oscar winner for Best Picture, Rain Man. This success led to even bigger projects for Christine. She earned a four-year production deal with Sony, overseeing the production of movies like Batman Returns. In 1991, she started a 10-year partnership with legendary producer Robert Evans (Chinatown, The Godfather) at Paramount. There, she produced the hit romantic comedy, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. It went on to gross more than $177 million worldwide.
Today, Christine is head of Marmont Lane Entertainment, one of the few production companies addressing the lack of female protagonists who are stars in their own stories. In a recent interview with Authority Magazine, she says, “We stand out because we don’t compromise our commitment to putting women for women on the big screen, even when that doesn’t necessarily fall on the beaten path to box office or Academy success.” Their upcoming projects are fresh; realizing at just the right time to capture a hungry audience who has been waiting long enough for these types of projects to be made.

Christine is a hard working executive with a big heart. She makes sure everyone is taken care of and is always open to lending a hand to those in need. Christine also has a weakness for animals and her family. She has five rescue dogs, even though she only planned to have one. She has two daughters, a film executive and an up and coming director. She’s enjoyed seeing them grow into strong, independent women.
“We stand out because we don’t compromise our commitment to putting women for women on the big screen, even when that doesn’t necessarily fall on the beaten path to box office or Academy success.”
She thanks Robert Evans, Sumner Redstone (the media magnate), and Sherry Lansing (her mentor) for helping her along the way. Christine Peters has paid it forward by giving so many a fighting chance in Hollywood. She is an amazing executive who lifts as she climbs.
