What I’m Looking For:
THRILLER, ROM-COM, GROUNDED SCI-FI, and DRAMA content in the FEATURE FILMS formats – especially those that are female-driven. DRAMA and COMEDY for SCRIPTED TV formats.
Peyton is a Los Angeles native who got her start interning at Silver Pictures (THE MATRIX, DIE HARD, SHERLOCK HOLMES). Since then, she’s worked at various production companies, studios, and talent agencies including Paramount Pictures, Warner Bros. Television, Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way Productions, The Gersh Agency, and Paradigm Talent Agency.
Most recently, Peyton was the Creative Executive at Studio 8 (WHITE BOY RICK, ALPHA), helping supervise a diverse slate of 20+ films. She has experience working with numerous writers, directors, and producers, providing notes on multiple project drafts, listening to a variety of story ideas and pitches, as well as identifying feature screenplays and other IP for potential acquisition. Prior to Studio 8, Peyton worked in development and production at Bruckheimer Films where she worked on films like PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 5, 12 STRONG, BAD BOYS FOR LIFE, and TOP GUN: MAVERICK.
Peyton enjoys working hands-on with writers and filmmakers to help further develop their ideas. Whether it’s a kernel of an idea or a fully written screenplay, she is happy to jump in at any stage of the development process to help get a story to a place where it needs to be. She has experience working with writers from the early stages of fleshing out themes and tone to focusing on specific storylines and character arcs.
