Early lifeEdit

Kosove graduated from Princeton University in 1992.[1] He became friends with Broderick Johnson in college.[1][2] He is of Jewish descent.[3]

CareerEdit

Kosove and Johnson moved to Los Angeles, California, where they started a film production company with financial capital from Frederick W. Smith, the founder and chairman of FedEx.[1][2] The company became known as Alcon Entertainment.[2] Their first feature film, Lost & Found, had limited box office returns,[2] but their second film, My Dog Skip, cost only $7M to produce and grossed $34 million domestically.[2] Alcon's other productions include P.S. I Love You, Dude, Where's My Car?, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, The Book of Eli,[2] Insomnia (the first studio distributed film for director Christopher Nolan), and Denis Villeneuve's Prisoners.

In 2009, Kosove and Johnson produced Alcon's The Blind Side, which became the highest grossing sports film of all time.[2] The film was nominated for a Best Picture Oscar and earned Sandra Bullock the Academy Award for Best Actress. The following year, Alcon Entertainment produced and financed Dolphin Tale, another modestly budgeted family film that earned an A+ Cinemascore from audiences, and grossed $100M in worldwide box-office.

Kosove was nominated for an Emmy Award as an executive producer on the documentary entitled, Sinatra: All or Nothing At All (directed by Alex Gibney) in 2015.[4] He is also the Executive Producer of the highly acclaimed Sci-fi series, The Expanse, currently in its third season on Syfy.
