An open letter from Jay Penske, CEO of PMC and a close friend of Turin’s, said:
“Despite his many achievements in Hollywood, Kevin’s greatest passion was his family and friends, He was so proud of his children. He and his wife, Evelina, were resolved that their children grow up with great values and ensured they make a difference in the broader world. Our collective heart breaks for them, and we all feel such a profound sense of loss. We will miss Kevin so much, and this town lost one of its brightest rising stars today.”
We’re sorry for his family and friends’ loss. You can also say what worries you have about his family in the comments. You will read about Kevin Turen’s work life below.
Kevin Turen Films
Turen was friends with Sam and Ashley Levinson. They were instrumental in the formation of Little Lamb Productions, which produced HBO’s critically acclaimed thriller Euphoria. The program has received 25 Emmy nominations and has won nine of them.
Along with the much-discussed HBO drama The Idol, Turen and the Levinsons produced the 2020 film Pieces of a Woman, for which Vanessa Kirby was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress. Turen was born in New York City in 1979.
He studied English and Critical Film Studies at Columbia University. Turen began his career in the film industry by working for Capital Entertainment, which eventually changed its name to First Look Studios. He began his career at First Look as a creative executive and rose through the ranks to become president of production.
He helped the firm expand from four employees to more than 150. Turen purchased and promoted over 100 films at First Look, including The Proposition, The Dead Girl, and An American Crime.

After that, he worked as the head of production at Infinity Media before becoming a principal at Treehouse Pictures. Turen rose to prominence at Treehouse by producing Nicholas Jareki’s 2012 film Arbitrage, starring Richard Gere, and J.C. Chandor’s 2013 film All is Lost, starring Robert Redford.
For the same firm, he also directed 99 Homes, At Any Price, and That Awkward Moment. Turen was appointed as president of David S. Goyer’s production company Phantom Four in 2014. Euphoria, Turen, and the Levinsons’ first TV program was based on an Israeli drama of the same name.
Turen, the Levinsons, and The Weeknd also collaborated on the HBO miniseries “The Idol.” The Idol, like Euphoria, was a huge issue on social media, but for the wrong reasons: there were allegations about how the program was manufactured, and when it initially aired, it received negative reviews.
Turen also produced Trey Edward Shults’ highly praised drama Waves, Olivier Megaton’s action thriller The Last Days of American Crime, Lena Dunham’s comedy Sharp Stick, and Tom Gormican’s Nicolas Cage film The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent.
