Jeremy Platt has gone from working as a screenwriter, creative executive and film festival programmer to being one of the most accomplished young literary managers and producers in film and television. After management stints at Irving Azoff's Frontline/Spectacle and Jordan Levin's Generate, Platt formed his own management and production company, Plattform, in early 2015.
As a production executive, Platt worked on Sony/Mandate's Stranger Than Fiction, directed by Marc Forster, and the Weinsteins' Halloween and Halloween 2, both directed by Rob Zombie.

Recently, The Void, which Platt executive produced, premiered to rave critical and audience acclaim at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas; it is set to release theatrically in 2017.
In 2015 Platt executive produced his straight to series SundanceTV/AMC studios show HAP AND LEONARD. The show, based on the popular book series by Joe Landsdale, premiered on March 2, 2016 to critical acclaim and the highest ratings in the history of SundanceTV. HAP AND LEONARD stars Michael K. Williams, James Purefoy, Jimmi Simpson, and Christina Hendricks. The show was subsequently picked up and Platt is currently in post-production on Season 2 which will premiere in March 2017.
