Banijay Group-owned Bunim/Murray Productions (BMP) is opening a New York outpost, set to be helmed by Project Runway All Stars showrunner and exec producer Rob Bagshaw (pictured).

Bagshaw, who has been named senior VP of development and production at BMP, was showrunner on all four seasons of Project Runway All Stars and also helped launched Top Chef Masters.

He previously served as EP of current programming and development for BBC Worldwide Productions, and was the former head of international programming for the UK indie Mentorn.

Keeping Up With the Kardashians firm BMP produces shows such as Project Runway, Project Runway All Stars and Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons in New York, but had yet to form a dedicated office for its East Coast operations. The new branch, referred to as BMP East, is already in development on a number of programs that it will be pitching to East Coast buyers.

“The opening of a New York office, led by Rob Bagshaw, reflects the evolving media landscape and our company’s continued growth across platforms as well as a recognition of the increased opportunities to sell to East Coast-based buyers in cable, digital and branded entertainment,” said Gil Goldschein, president of BMP, in a statement.

Bagshaw added: “For the past few years, I’ve had the incredible opportunity to work with Bunim/Murray to produce All Stars in New York City and, while I’ve created content that spans the gamut of television programming, reality has always been my passion.”
