Daniel Soiseth (pictured), producer of America’s Next Top Model and Hell’s Kitchen, has signed a long-term overall deal to join the Discovery Studios roster.

The deal is the latest in a string of partnerships from Discovery Studio’ in-house production division, with Dirty Jobs producer Eddie Barbini, MythBusters co-executive producer Rob Hammersley and Creative Differences’ Erik Nelson signing with the unit in recent months.

“Discovery Studios continues to attract top creative talent who understand our brands and storytelling sensibilities,” said Lee Bartlett, interim president of Discovery Studios. “Daniel is a celebrated producer whose talent will strengthen Discovery’s ability to develop premium content across Discovery’s portfolio of networks.”

Soiseth added: “My first foray into the business was producing shows for the Discovery networks and I’m excited to be bringing my experience and original ideas to Discovery Studios.  I look forward to producing new and meaningful content that pushes the boundaries of traditional television programming.”

Soiseth’s other credits includes American Inventor, Big Brother and Amish in the City.
