In her new role, Chin will lead the Stage 13 scripted creative team and its multifaceted slate of development projects and original productions in short-form, half-hour and one-hour episodic, and feature formats.
Chin joins the young studio, which launched in late 2017 and has seen its scripted series receive six EMMY® nominations, a WGA award, and multiple prestigious festival laurels and appearances, including Sundance, SXSW, and Tribeca, among others.

Together, we’re laser-focused on super-serving the highly influential yet under-represented consumers who have an insatiable desire to see and hear their stories. It’s amazing to have such a passionate creative and business kindred spirit lead our scripted narrative efforts as we continue championing an array of the most talented fresh voices on the horizon. Elaine's exquisite tastemaker sensibilities and deep bench of artist/filmmaker relationships from around the globe is second to none."
“Throughout my career, I have always sought out opportunities to work with talented creators with unique and compelling voices – and with organizations at the forefront of change and advancement in the entertainment industry,” said Chin. “Breaking ground, creating new forms of content, and finding new talent have always been my core missions. So, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to utilize the full range of my skills and experience working with Stage 13, whose creative vision and innovative spirit I’ve always admired”.
