U.S. cable network A&E has brought on a new VP of non-fiction and alternative programming.

Dave Mace (pictured) joins the net following a stint with MTV Networks, where most recently, he served as senior vice president of the VH1 Creative Lab, a think tank tasked with developing self-generated series for the net. He’d also worked as senior vice president of original programming for Logo, where he oversaw the network’s bicoastal programming team during its launch.

Mace will be based in A&E’s New York City offices, and will report directly to non-fiction and alternative programming SVP Elaine Frontain Bryant.

The network has also hired Gabriel Marano as vice president of drama programming. He was most recently VP of scripted programming at Fox Television Studios, and will work out of A&E’s¬†Century City¬†offices.

“The additions of these two execs will serve to bolster what is already one of the best programming teams in the business,” said David McKillop, A&E’s EVP of programming, in a statement. “Dave and Gabriel come to A&E with a wealth of experience and success in the industry.”
