Top TV Producer Kevin Turen Dies Suddenly at 44

Producer Kevin Turen, who produced TV shows like HBO’s “Euphoria” and “The Idol,” has died at the age of 44.

Turen’s father released a statement confirming his son’s death but did not reveal a cause.

He wrote in a statement for Deadline:

“Kevin was so exceptional, this world is going to be less without him.”

Jay Penske, CEO of PMC, also shared a statement, writing:

“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,” Penske concluded.

Turen was born in Manhattan and started his career after studying at Columbia University

He made his producing debut on the 2005 indie film Wassup Rockers from director Larry Clark.

Turen also went on to produce feature films, including Operation Endgame, written by Euphoria creator Sam Levinson, and Arbitrage, starring Richard Gere.

As The Mirror reported, Turen recently produced the Nicolas Cage and Pedro Pascal film The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, Mia Goth’s X and Pearl, and HBO’s Euphoria and The Idol.

Tributes began falling in for Turen, as his co-worker Cassian Elwes commented on X, formerly Twitter:

“What people don’t realize is actually Hollywood is a small town.”

“Everyone eventually meets everyone. The indie film circuit of people who consistently make indie films is even smaller. We all know each other really well because we are kindred spirits. We lost a very important person in our circle tonight,” the message concluded.

Kirsten Sage Coleman took to her Instagram story and said:

Very said to hear this. Sending all of the love to the ones who need it.”

The producer is survived by his wife, actor Evelina Turen, and their two sons, Jack and James.
