Former Nat Geo exec Bridget Hunnicutt (pictured) has joined Seattle-based PSG Films as MD, charged with opening and running a DC-headquartered East Coast office for the prodco.
Hunnicutt, who exited her role as National Geographic Channels (NGC) senior VP of global development and production last fall, will oversee content development and production of new genres in the U.S. and abroad.
“Bridget’s experience in creating breakthrough content for U.S. and international audiences and bringing the network perspective will be a game changer for us,” said PSG founder and creative director Brian Jones.
“With her ideas, drive and talent we’ll finally be able to expand our reach and execute more ideas. Together, we have been and will continue to be able to deliver our network partners with the very best content.”
Hunnicutt added: “As a commissioner, I was fortunate to be in a position where it was my job to find the best upcoming talent. Discovering Brian and his team at PSG was one of the most rewarding experiences I had while at National Geographic.”
In addition to Hunnicutt’s hire, PSG has secured a renewal order for 20 episodes of Alaska State Troopers, a show which Jones and Hunnicutt previously collaborated on for NGC.
