Welcome to Myrtle Manor producer Jupiter Entertainment has named former United Talent Agency (UTA) TV agent Allison Wallach (pictured) as president of the prodco.
Wallach – who will report to Jupiter Entertainment founder and CEO Stephen Land – will be based in the company’s newly expanded New York office. The exec previously served as an agent within the alternative television department at UTA, where she helped expand the agency’s international and cable television business. Wallach served as an agent to Jupiter Entertainment over four years.
Prior to joining UTA, Wallach served as senior VP of programming at BBC Worldwide in New York, and also worked as VP of East Coast programming for Lifetime.
“After working closely with Allison for the past four years at UTA, we were convinced that her many talents, contacts and creativity will make her an invaluable asset to our overall team,” said Stephen Land in a statement. “Her leadership will be instrumental as we continue to build Jupiter and pursue new genres and platforms.”
Wallach added: “I feel that transitioning to president of their company is both a natural and exciting next step. As one of the most well-established production companies in the industry, I look forward to helping them grow their already extraordinary business.”
In addition to the New York outpost, Jupiter Entertainment – founded in 1998 – has an office in Knoxville, Tennessee, and a post-production hub in LA. The company currently has seven series airing across A&E, Discovery and TLC, among others.
