Cake Boss prodco High Noon Entertainment has promoted Patrick Jager (pictured, left) to senior VP of development and production, and Scott Feeley (right) to senior VP of current programming.

Jager was most recently the prodco’s VP of development, and in his new role, he will manage High Noon’s development team of 10 across all three offices, in Denver, Los Angeles and New York. He will also oversee the company’s development slate, pilots and specials and is tasked with creating new character-driven docuseries and original formats.

Jager will also be responsible for the marketing and communications for High Noon, a company he has been with since 2007.

Feeley has been upped from VP of current programming, and in his expanded role, he will executive produce all of the company’s series and specials – including TLC’s Cake Boss and Next Great Baker, and Discovery Channel’s Dude, You’re Screwed - and oversee production in the three offices.

Before joining High Noon, Feeley was a show runner for Pilgrim Films, which included supervising Discovery’s American Chopper.

Both Feeley and Jager will report to CEO Jim Berger.

“Scott and Patrick each possess a strong creative vision and a unique voice,” said  Berger. “They have stellar reputations, deep relationships within the community and amazing energy.”

ITV Studios acquired a controlling stake in High Noon Entertainment in the spring of 2013.
