The Company, the LA-based prodco established by producers Charlie Ebersol and Mike Lanigan, has signed a first look deal with its former unscripted development SVP,  Jason Henry  (pictured, left).

Henry’s production credits include WipeoutFear Factor and Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Under the two-year agreement, Henry – formerly The Company’s SVP of unscripted and current – will develop unscripted formats for the shop through his Lobster Moon banner while continuing to showrun The Company’s CNBC series West Texas Investors Club, which enters its second season in June.

Additionally, Henry will create, develop and exec produce new formats that will be under the Company shingle.

“After three years as our head of development, Jason has proven himself to be an invaluable creative powerhouse and it’s an honor to get the chance to help such a great creative talent build his own successful shop,” Ebersol said in a statement.

Henry has also worked on MTV’s Bromance and ABC’s Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, for which he won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Reality Program in 2010. Prior to joining The Company, he served as SVP of production and development at Ryan Seacrest Productions and Ashton Kutcher’s Katalyst Films.
