U.S. network AMC has hired 3Ball Productions exec Tracey Lentz (pictured) to be its LA-based VP of unscripted programming.

Lentz, who was most recently VP of development at 3Ball Productions/Eyeworks USA, has previously held creative positions at Current TV, ABC Media Productions, TLC, GSN and Showtime Networks.

In her new role, she will focus on developing unscripted series “that resonate with AMC viewers and live alongside the network’s original scripted series and classic films,” AMC said. She will report to Eliot Goldberg, the network’s senior VP of unscripted programming.

“Tracey is that rare executive with true hands-on experience as both a producer and a network executive. With her impressive development and production background,” Goldberg said. “I know she will be a tremendous addition to our growing programming team as we continue to build our unscripted slate.”
