Producing Prisoners

An interview with film producer Kira Davis

Santa Fe native Kira Davis has built quite a career for herself since trading the Land of Enchantment for Hollywood. After graduating Magna Cum Laude from New Mexico State University, Davis found herself interning on a small, 1996 comedy called Love Is All There Is, starring a teenage Angelina Jolie. It was there she met the co-presidents of Alcon Entertainment and began working with them as an assistant. Since 2001 she has co-produced The Affair of the Necklace, Love Don’t Cost a Thing, Chasing Liberty and Racing Stripes. In 2005 she executive produced The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and became a full-fledged producer with the sequel The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2.

At the time, I expressed a healthy amount of skepticism about Esquire’s ability to launch an entire television network based around exactly two docu-reality shows (one cooking show and one travel show). Obviously the executives in charge were listening to me because less than a week before the net was set to debut, Esquire pulled the plug.
