BY Angeline Dimambro, April 22, 2022
Creative Producing alumna Sarah-Kate Fenelon ‘18 is a producer on season two of the acclaimed Amazon series, Good Omens.
Fenelon works as a Creative Executive at The Blank Corporation, the Los Angeles-based production company of Neil Gaiman (Coraline, Sandman, American Gods). Working for Gaiman is what led to Fenelon’s production credit on the second season of Good Omens. In addition to serving as showrunner, Gaiman is also the co-author, alongside the late Terry Pratchett, of the 1990 novel of the same name on which the series is based.
In Good Omens, The End of the World is coming. This means a fussy Angel and a loose-living Demon who’ve become overly fond of life on Earth are forced to form an unlikely alliance to stop Armageddon. But they have lost the Antichrist, an 11-year-old boy unaware he’s meant to bring upon the end of days, forcing them to embark on an adventure to find him and save the world before it’s too late.
Season two of Good Omens is currently in post production. It will air on Amazon Prime in late 2022 or early 2023.
In addition to working on Good Omens, Fenelon also continues to work as an independent producer. Fenelon discussed what it’s like being a producer in an interview with The Irish Times:
“When I told my parents that I thought I might make a good film producer their first question was, like 99 percent of people, ‘What is a producer? Why didn’t I want to be a director?’ Because they’d heard of those. I’m not sure people actually understand how things get made, nor the sheer amount of people (an army) involved or the coordination involved. Think of a $15 million wedding that takes place over multiple locations with hundreds of guests...actually think of a $150 million wedding to produce the product that they consume in one "Netflix and Chill" session—it takes as much work. If the director is the architect of the film, the producer is the engineer, manager, accountant, and HR all in one. The producers literally organize and coordinate the film elements that have been curated by the director and from that point of view, can make or break a production. They can also have a huge creative say, and in Hollywood at least, it is the executive producers who decide what gets made.”
Sarah-Kate Fenelon is an Irish film producer based in Los Angeles. An alumna of Columbia University’s Film MFA Program, she has produced films all around the world, from Morocco to Iceland, Cape Town, and Colombia. Her work has played at international film festivals, including Miami, Woodstock, ScreamFest LA, Durban, and St. Louis. Fenelon’s last film, Our Albertinia, which was shot on location in South Africa, was awarded the Katharina Otto-Bernstein Film Fund Grant, the National Board of Review Student Grant, and Big Sky Edit Visionary Award.
