After spending the last 18 months as the President of 'bel Films, Peter McAlevey is returning to his roots as a writer/producer. While at 'bel, Mr. McAlevey acquired, developed and scheduled for production three films-"The Girl Who Struck Out Babe Ruth," starring LeAnn Rimes; "Conquistadora," starring Academy Award-winners Merryl Streep and Chris Cooper; and "Thomasina," a remake of the '60s Disney classic-before the Wall Street financiers of 'bel, citing market conditions, informed him they were closing the office.

Prior to 'bel, Mr. McAlevey had completed principal photography on NAKED MOVIE (starring Tori Spelling, Carmen Electra, Christian Slater and Lou Diamond Phillips) and overseen the release of Sundance pick SHADOW HOURS (starring Balthazar Getty, Peter Weller and Rebecca Gayheart), making him among the hottest independent producers in Hollywood.

Before NAKED MOVIE and SHADOW HOURS, McAlevey served as producer on another Sundance nominee, KLASH (starring Jasmine Guy and Giancarlo Esposito), CHAMPIONS (starring Ken Shamrock) and MGM's remake of the classic fight movie, BODY & SOUL (starring Joe Mantegna, Rod Steiger and Jennifer Beals), as well as the hot documentary GUEST LIST ONLY, about sexy celebrity offspring, Paris Hilton.
McAlevey is a former VP of Production at Michael Douglas' Stonebridge Entertainment. There he oversaw development and production on such films as RADIO FLYER, FLATLINERS, HARD PROMISES and numerous others. Prior to Stonebridge, McAlevey served as VP of Production at Walt Disney Pictures where he reported directly to Studio chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg.

Before his involvement in the entertainment industry, McAlevey spent many years as an internationally known journalist. He was a correspondent for NEWSWEEK in Los Angeles as well as a business reporter for NEWSWEEK in New York. In addition, McAlevey worked as an editor for INSIDE SPORTS Magazine, and a writer for such publications as THE NEW YORK TIMES, LOS ANGELES TIMES, BUSINESSWEEK, FORBES and TV GUIDE.

Since 1992, McAlevey has been a member of the board of directors of the American Film Institute's Third Decade Council and has taught a course at UCLA called "Surviving as an Independent Producer." A native of upstate New York, he is a 1978 graduate of Columbia College of Columbia University in New York, where he distinguished himself as a recipient of the Bennett Cerf Memorial Prize for Writing.
