Former Screaming Flea Productions and Cineflix executive Jodi Flynn (pictured) will head up an LA-based unscripted prodco, Outpost Entertainment, in a joint venture with Leftfield Entertainment.

Flynn, whose credits include Hoarders and Three Sheets, will serve as president of Outpost, the latest addition to the Leftfield Entertainment portfolio, which also includes Leftfield Pictures, Sirens Media and Loud TV.

The full-service production company will work out of Leftfield’s West Coast offices, and will develop and produce unscripted television in what Flynn calls a 60/40 model – series appealing to both men and women, while tipping the scales slightly towards one gender or the other, depending on the show.

Flynn was most recently the EVP of programming at Cineflix, and prior to that, spent 14 years at Screaming Flea Productions, where she rose from coordinating producer to vice president. She has also served as a field producer for National Geographic Channel’s Megastructures.

“I’ve known Jodi for a long time and have had enormous respect for her production talent and expertise, as well as for her entrepreneurial style,” said Leftfield Entertainment’s CEO Brent Montgomery in a statement. “Smart, creative and driven, Jodi has earned a reputation for developing and executing different types of programming that resonate for various buyers and viewers. Starting Outpost Entertainment with Jodi was simply a no-brainer.”

“As a longtime producer of unscripted television, it’s a huge milestone to be able to launch a production company from the ground up; working in partnership with Brent Montgomery and Leftfield – successful producers entrenched in this industry financially as well as creatively – literally fast-tracked this venture,” added Flynn.

“As a result, we’re able to hit the ground running and deliver to many different networks standout programming that satisfies a variety of audience tastes and interests. For me, it’s a match made in heaven.”
