Miami-based indie 2C Media has appointed Igal Svet (pictured) as its VP of development, charged with spearheading the production company’s unscripted slate, as well as pitching and selling projects.

He will report directly to 2C Media presidents and co-founders Chris Sloan and Carla Kaufman Sloan.

Most recently, Svet served as a producer on cable series including TruTV’s Full Throttle Saloon, History’s Top Gear and Lifetime’s Love Handles. He previously worked at BBC Worldwide’s development department in LA.

“Igal has a demonstrated vision and the perfect background to help take 2C’s unscripted efforts to the next level,” said Sloan in a statement. “With two series on air this summer and a host of projects in development, the timing is right.”

Svet joins 2C Media as the company prepares to premiere its fifth cable television series, Travel Channel’s Airport 24/7: Miami, and following Animal Planet’s recent second season premiere of Swamp Wars.

“This is an exceptional company building strong momentum across the board, and I’m thrilled to take up the challenge of expanding 2C Media’s original programming portfolio with innovative new shows,” said Svet.
