David Ellison‘s film production and financing company Skydance is entering the TV business with the May 1 launch of a television division, Skydance TV.  It will be headed by former senior Fox executive Marcy Ross, who will serve as president of Skydance TV. The expansion into TV is part of Skydance’s rapid growth over the past three years. The company was founded by Ellison, son of Oracle founder Larry Ellison, in 2010 when he raised $350 million to co-finance movies with Paramount Pictures that has resulted in such films as Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Jack Reacher, G.I. Joe: Retaliation and the upcoming World War Z and Star Trek Into Darkness. Ross spent the last decade at Fox as SVP and EVP of Current Programming.
