Banijay Group-owned French prodco H20 Productions has added former Endemol executive Philippe Stoltz to its roster, as managing director.

Stoltz will take on his new role this month, and will work with H20′s founder Cyril Hanouna and his team.

He was most recently the head of reality and docu-reality and executive producer at Endemol France; roles he has held since 2008. At Endemol, he led the production on formats including Secret Story, Celebrity Farm, Star Academy and Undercover Boss. 

Prior to that, Stoltz was at ID9 and M6 Group, where his credits include Peking Express, Come Dine With Me, The Bachelor and Top Model. 

“Philippe’s extensive experience and talent will be enormous assets to H2O as, with the backing of Banijay, we expand our industry presence and we work to deliver more hours of fresh content month after month,” said Hanouna.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for me to work with an exceptional talent like Cyril at a young, fresh company that has built in just one year a strong reputation in France and beyond,” added Stotlz.

Hands off My Set! has become a cornerstone in D8′s schedule and a true French pop culture phenomenon, so I’m very pleased to be able to work with Cyril and his team to develop and expand the company’s creativity and output.”
