Carl Beverly, partner in Timberman/Beverly Productions with Sarah Timberman since 2006, executive produces the FX series Justified, based on the Elmore Leonard short story, Fire in the Hole. Justified was awarded the prestigious Peabody Award and is currently entering its fourth season.
In 2010, Timberman/Beverly signed a new producing pact with CBS Productions where they are launching two new drama series: Unforgettable, based on J. Robert Lennon’s short story The Rememberer, and starring Poppy Montgomery and Dylan Walsh; and A Gifted Man, starring Patrick Wilson and directed by Oscar®-winning filmmaker Jonathan Demme.
Prior to partnering with Timberman, Beverly started his career at Sony Pictures Entertainment on the desks of Peter Guber and Jon Feltheimer, eventually landing in Columbia Tri-Star’s (CTTV) drama development department with Timberman, where he was part of the team that developed Dawson’s Creek. After two years at CTTV, Beverly joined CTTV President Eric Tannenbaum at the newly-formed Artists Television Group (ATG), where he helped place several series on the air including The Street (FOX), The Weber Show (NBC) and The Fighting Fitzgeralds (NBC).
Following ATG, Beverly rejoined Timberman at Universal Television, eventually becoming head of the drama division where he developed several new series including Michael Mann’s Robbery Homicide Division (CBS), Elmore Leonard’s Karen Sisco (ABC), and the musically-themed period piece, American Dreams (NBC). Beverly also led the Current department, charged with oversight of Mister Sterling (NBC) and The Agency (CBS), among other shows.
Beverly grew up in Los Angeles, is a graduate from The University of Southern California with a B.S. in business administration and a Juris Doctorate in law, and is a member of the California State Bar.
