Offman is said to be leaving to pursue new opportunities, although she will remain as an executive producer on select Jigsaw projects and is planning on working with Jigsaw as an independent producer going forward.
“I depart Jigsaw with immense pride and take pleasure in all that I achieved in the past 11 years with Alex and the Jigsaw family,” Offman said in a statement. “I collaborated with extraordinary talent and emerging filmmakers in crafting stories that resonate loudly. I am thrilled for what lies ahead and look forward to the next chapter.”

“A foundational figure for Jigsaw, Stacey is an extraordinary executive and producer, with a gift for listening to what’s going on and looking ahead,” Gibney said in a statement. “I wish her the best going forward and hope that we will continue to work together in the future.”
