Ice Cold Killers producer M2 Pictures has boosted its development team with the promotion of Lucie Jourdan (pictured, left) to senior VP of development, and the hiring of Riley Robbins (right) as VP of development.

Jourdan – the former VP of development for the Hampton, Virginia-headquartered prodco – joined the company in 2012 and has served as creative head and exe producer on shows including Virgin Coaches and Sex Slaves: Texas Rescue.

Before M2, the exec served as VP of development for Candor Entertainment and also worked as director of development for Pilgrim Studios, where her credits included Top Shot, Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy and Worst Case Scenario with Bear Grylls.

Elsewhere, Robbins has joined M2 from the Toronto-based JV Productions, where he served as VP of U.S. development. Before this, he worked as VP of development for Stuart Krasnow Productions and also as director of development at FremantleMedia North America.

Both Jourdan and Robbins will work out of the company’s west coast office.

“They’re both great at developing for target channels and finding new and fresh ideas,” said M2 president and executive producer Mike Sinclair in a statement. “They are the right call to help us meet the needs of our unprecedented growth, continue to find new venues to tell great stories, and fuel even greater expansion for M2 moving forward.”
