Joy Ganes is President of Tracy Oliver‘s production company, Tracy Yvonne Productions (FIRST WIVES CLUB) which specializes in film and television development and production. Prior to that, Ms. Ganes was the Vice President of Business and Legal Affairs at BBC Studios, where she supported the production and development departments of the scripted and unscripted teams in all linear and digital matters. Ms. Ganes was also Head of Production at OWN Studios where she helped manage productions and content creation on both the OWN network and www.oprah.com. As an attorney, she was active in pro bono matters that included negotiating screenplay options extensions for small budget films.
She has produced a number of shorts, but most recently produced the feature film PREMATURE released by IFC in February 2020 and I’LL MEET YOU THERE which was set to premiere at the 2020 SXSW Film Festival. Ms. Ganes’ passion in independent producing stems from developing projects that allow her to tell universal stories that are both entertaining and socially relevant. She seeks to create art that demonstrates that we are more alike than we are different.
