Heather Parry, president of Live Nation Productions, led her company to help produce the Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga vehicle “A Star is Born.” When she heard that her friend Bradley was going to direct this movie she contacted his agent, Dave Bugliari, to find out how to get LNP involved. She also talked to Bill Gerber, one of the movie’s producers, about the matter.
The very energetic and pro-active Parry first started Live Nations Production in December 2015. The company immediately became known for music-related documentaries and films. They have so far produced things like the Sean “Diddy” Combs documentary “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story”; the Lady Gaga documentary “Five Foot Two”; and film “The After Party” starring Wiz Khalifa, French Montana and Teyana Taylor; and many other music-related projects. In the works right now are films about pop singers Noah Cyrus and Kim Petras, and a TV series called “From Cradle to Stage” based on a book by the mothers of various musicians.
Everyone who works with Parry highly respects here extreme brilliance and drive. Although she has a team of people infusing ideas into the projects with which they become involved, Parry is usually instrumental in giving the project the unique angle for which it becomes successful.
Parry started her career when she was 22-years-old on MTV News. It was not long before she was its West Coast Bureau Chief. During these years she began producing and developing movies. One of the stories she succeeded in getting the rights to was “Twilight.” Unfortunately, Viacom, the parent company of MTV did not think it worthwhile and sold those rights to Summit Entertainment who ended up getting billions from the finished product.
