ITV Studios America has upped former VP of development Paul Reaney to senior VP of development.
The exec will continue to be based out of the company’s LA headquarters and will report to Bruce Robertson, executive VP of creative strategy.
During his time at ITV Studios America, Reaney has been part of the teams behind such projects as The Chase (GSN) and the forthcoming Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris (NBC).
In his new role, the exec will continue growing the company’s West Coast development slate across various genres for broadcast, digital and cable, and will also work with Robertson in defining the development strategy for the company and managing the West Coast development team.
Before joining ITV Studios America in 2011, Reaney served as VP of development at FremantleMedia, where he developed such shows as Down Fall, Rock the Cradle and Thank God You’re Here.
“Paul has been a key part of ITV Studios America’s growth over the last few years, from the breadth of projects we have sold to the range of networks we are in business with,” said Robertson in a statement. “His creative acumen and development expertise continue to be assets as we expand further and I’m delighted to have him on the team.”
