According to a report from Deadline yesterday, podcast studio Cadence13 has hired Patton Valentine, a veteran executive from the TV world, to help it pitch its podcasts as potential bases of film and TV projects.
He joins Audacy-owned Cadence13 from Ley Line Entertainment (from the producer if “Everything Everywhere All At Once”), where he served as Head of Television, launching its television business. He previously worked at Davis Entertainment, Lionsgate Television, and the Epix network.
“One of our early strategic goals at Cadence13, beyond building a highly successful podcast network with a wide range of content, was to create a best in class, in-house studio focused on original storytelling at its best,” said Chris Corcoran, Chief Content Officer and Founding Partner, Cadence13. “Now that we’ve built these two flourishing original studios, and created a number of hits where the studio and franchise brands are resonating as much as the stories, we’re excited to welcome Patton into the C13 family and accelerate the expansion of these compelling stories to the screen.”
According to the report, shows that are being considered for adaptation include Robert Downey Jr.’s The Sunshine Place, true-crime series Gone South, psychological thriller Ghostwriter, which starred Kate Mara and Adam Scott, and franchises such as Gangster Capitalism, horror series Treat, and Wizard of Oz heist story No Place Like Home.
