A spokesperson for Penske Media Corporation, the parent company of The Hollywood Reporter, confirmed Turen’s death. No other details were immediately available.
“Despite his many achievements in Hollywood, Kevin’s greatest passion was his family and friends,” Jay Penske, CEO of PMC and a close friend of Turen, said in a statement. “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.”
Turen was closely associated with Sam and Ashley Levinson. The trio co-founded Little Lamb Productions which produced HBO’s highly influential drama series Euphoria, which has been nominated for 25 Emmy Awards, winning nine. Turen and the Levinsons also produced the much-talked-about The Idol for HBO and the feature film Pieces of a Woman, which garnered star Vanessa Kirby an Academy Award nomination for best actress.
