Stationed out of Paperny’s U.S. offices in New York, Huang arrives at the Vancouver-based prodco with 20 years’ experience in production and development for factual television programs.

“Joy’s entertainment experience spans television and feature films to off-Broadway and digital media,” said David Paperny, president of Paperny Entertainment, in a statement. “This hands-on industry knowledge and client experience will be a great asset as we increase our roster of television series.”

Prior to joining the Paperny team, Huang held positions at DIY Networks, Tenth Street Productions, MTV Networks, and most recently, Original Media – a subsidiary of Endemol North America – where she was VP of current series and development. In 2012, she received an Emmy nod for the MTV special, President Obama’s Race to the Top 2011.

Huang will work under the direction of Paperny’s recently appointed managing director, Caroline Christopher, who took her post in March.

Entertainment One acquired the prodco in July 2014. Its current programming includes 2 Fat 2 Fly (OWN), Chopped Canada (Food Network), Super Snack Bros (Food Network),Chow Masters (Travel Channel), Timber Kings (Discovery/HGTV), and its latest spin off series, Carver Kings (HGTV).
