In 1989 Lynda Obst formed Lynda Obst Productions, a feature films production company, originally based at Columbia Pictures where Obst produced Terry Gilliam's The Fisher King (with Debra Hill), Nora Ephron's directing debut, This Is My Life, and executive produced Ephron's second film, Sleepless in Seattle.
While based at Fox, Obst produced The Siege, starring Denzel Washington and Annette Bening, Hope Floats, starring Sandra Bullock and Harry Connick Jr., One Fine Day, starring Michelle Pfeiffer and George Clooney and Someone Like You, starring Ashley Judd and Hugh Jackman. Lynda executive produced Contact, starring Jodie Foster for Warner Brothers in 1997. In 1999, she executive produced The 60s, a two part miniseries for NBC.
In 2007, Obst teamed up with Marc Rosen of Heyday Films to create Rosen-Obst Productions. The company has recently moved from Paramount Pictures, where Obst produced such films as How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, starring Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey, and Abandon, the directing debut of Academy Award winner Stephen Gaghan. Rosen-Obst Productions is currently partnered with CBS in Studio City.
The Fall 2008 Rosen Obst Internship Program is open to undergraduate, post-undergraduate, and graduate students of all class standings and majors. Because the internship is unpaid, we encourage you to earn class credit for your time.
