Alison Small

Alison Small, LA04, is head of film at Brownstone Productions and helped the studio produce Cocaine Bear and Bottoms. The successful movies helped Brownstone play a significant role in bringing back the R-rated comedy, which has struggled to gain traction in the past years. Small told Variety magazine that the challenge of an R-rated movie “is that whenever there’s something that’s perceived as a failure, it just makes it harder and harder to get similar types of movies made.” Small had previous roles at Paramount Pictures, DreamWorks SKG and Warner Bros. Television Group.
