CodeBlack Films, a Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF) company, has hired veteran film and television producer Paul Hall as Head of Development and Production, the Company announced today. Hall’s previous credits span more than two decades of the African-American film experience, including films such as Tyler Perry’s Temptation, For Colored Girls, Madea’s Witness Protection, Good Deeds, Shaft and Higher Learning, among others.
