Peter Rice

Peter Rice Brief Biography

Peter Rice (born 1967) was born in the United Kingdom, graduated from the University of Nottingham in 1989, and began his career with Fox Filmed Entertainment in 1985 as an intern in the U.S. distribution and marketing office. Rice rose through the ranks within News Corporation, the entertainment conglomerate overseen by Rupert Murdoch. As a creative executive at Twentieth Century Fox, Rice worked on blockbuster hits, like Independence Day, and established relationships with up-and-coming filmmakers. The experiences made him the likely candidate for the position of president of production at Fox Searchlight, where he characteristically triumphed small-budgeted films to commercial and critical success. Although the executive experienced some failure with a new film division Fox Atomic, Rice managed to transform his success at Fox Searchlight into an opportunity to head the Fox television network's prime-time lineup. Despite rumors circling his ascension throughout the News Corporation, Peter Rice generally remained out of the spotlight throughout his achievements.
