U.S. cable net truTV has named Adam Dolgins its SVP of alternative original programming, tasked with taking on all aspects of truTV’s comedic or alternative reality programming.

Dolgins  joins the U.S. cable network from his own prodco, Fractured Hip Productions.

In his new role, he is responsible for overseeing the network’s original programming group, which handles truTV’s alternative comedic programming, such as Impractical Jokers and the upcoming Steve-O hosted series Killer Karaoke. The team will also develop new truTV series in that space, a central component of truTV’s original programming strategy this year.

Based in New York, Dolgins reports to Darren Campo, SVP of programming, production and development.

Tony Horn will continue to serve as SVP of truTV’s current programming group, reporting to Campo. Horn’s team handles the more traditional reality series on truTV’s programming slate, including Hardcore Pawn and Lizard Lick Towing.

“Adam brings extensive creative experience to truTV as a producer of the kind of comedic reality shows that are increasingly important to truTV’s amazing ratings momentum,” said Campo.

At Fractured Hip Productions, Dolgins was an executive producer on multiple comedic reality shows, including four seasons of MTV’s Silent Library and its hidden-camera series Boiling Points. Among other credits, ranging from CMT’s Prankville to VH1′s Sledgehammer, Dolgins was also the creator and executive producer of VH1′s long-running series Rock of Ages.

Fractured Hip Productions will now be overseen by partner Frank Gregory.
