Colleen Bell replaces Amy Lemisch at California Film Commission

Bell was announced the new Director of California Film Commission on May 23. She was appointed by Governor Gavin Newsom.

Bell’s predecessor, Amy Lemisch, who held the job for 15 years, left the state agency on May 10. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger had appointed her in 2004 and Governor Jerry Brown had re-appointed her. 

Bell has been working at the agency since 2017 as a consultant. She joined the agency after completing her tenure at Hungary as the U.S. ambassador, a position she held from 2014 to 2017. 

Prior to becoming an ambassador, she held several positions at Bell-Phillip Television Productions. She was an associate producer and script supervisor from 1991 to 2003, director of special projects from 2006 to 2012, and producer from 2012 to 2014.

She was also a producer on the hit CBS soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, from 1991 to 2015.

Sources report that Bell’s appointment “comes at a particularly volatile moment.” As the director of the U.S.A.’s largest film commission, Bell is now provided with a unique opportunity to capitalize on the newfound distaste for the Peach State.
