Reynolds Entertainment


Kelley Feldsott Reynolds

Kelley Feldsott Reynolds has a passion for good stories and working with good people. She established Reynolds Entertainment LLC, an independent film company, to continue producing for major networks, streamers, and studios, after she left the studio world many years ago. Reynolds began her career in acquisitions and development at ITC Entertainment Group, an independent UK film and television company which produced the British classics, “The Prisoner” and “The Saint.” She became a development executive when PolyGram Filmed Entertainment acquired and restructured ITC into PolyGram Television. Reynolds garnered extensive experience in distribution and maintains long-standing relationships with top international filmmakers, distributors and sales companies. As a seasoned veteran of all the major film and television markets and festivals, including AFM, Cannes, MIPCOM, NATPE, Sundance, and Toronto, Reynolds understands how to navigate the choppy waters of film finance to successfully close deals.

This experience from both sides of the desk helped Reynolds become the producer she is today - a producer with the heart of a distributor.

As an independent, Reynolds has produced a variety of diverse and well-received projects, from the critically acclaimed thriller THE UNSAID, starring Andy Garcia, Teri Polo, and Linda Cardalini, to Hallmark Channel’s romantic comedy LOVE ON THE AIR, starring Allison Sweeney and Jonathan Scarfe. Reynolds continues to work with award-winning talent and especially loves her time working with writers helping to bring their stories to audiences around the globe.

Reynolds productions have been filmed in locations all over the world, which has provided valuable knowledge of tax incentives, rebates, credits, and other production subsidies necessary for getting the most value available to each project. Her consistent track record of combining great scripts by award winning writers, stellar casts, and economically advantageous budgets earned Reynolds a sterling reputation for producing films that deliver to both audiences and investors alike.

A recent success filmed in Vancouver is top-rated Hallmark Christmas romance, CHRISTMAS GETAWAY, starring Bridget Regan and Travis Van Winkle, which remains an audience favorite and regularly appears on a variety of top-ten “best” lists.

In addition to developing and producing projects through Reynolds Entertainment, Reynolds is frequently sought out to obtain financing and distribution for other productions. For example, she secured distribution and financing for the Alec Baldwin-hosted talk show series, “Raw Footage,” which aired on the Independent Film Channel. Reynolds has also represented international producers seeking distribution or selling their entertainment libraries in the US.

Reynolds’ ventured into reality television when she partnered with 3 Ball Entertainment (producers of “Biggest Loser”) on her first show, “Revisited,” which revolves around a team of paranormals who investigate cold criminal cases. Reynolds’ second show was, “The Beverly Hills Country Club,” a modern version of “The Love Boat” set in a country club.

Reynolds occasionally mentors up-and-coming filmmakers and students. She also participates on panels, seminars, and workshops.


Company History

Reynolds Entertainment was originally formed as Channing Films in 1997 by Kelley Feldsott-Reynolds and the late Oscar-nominated Simon Channing-Williams, who produced several films by acclaimed and award-winning British director, Mike Leigh, including "Secrets & Lies," which garnered an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture. The company's objective was, and continues to be, to produce high quality, reasonably budgeted independent feature films with international appeal across all medias.

In 1999, the company officially became Reynolds Entertainment. Reynolds began to evolve into other areas of the entertainment business, including sales and talent representation, to generate additional revenue. This diversification also served to extend and solidify its working industry relationships both in the U.S. and abroad. Reynolds Entertainment possesses the expertise to acquire, develop, finance, produce and distribute all manner of projects across the media spectrum and is positioned to thrive in changing business climates and to capitalize on technological developments in the ever-changing entertainment industry.
