JC Mills (pictured), most recently an agent at ICM Partners, has been tapped as president and GM of Philadelphia- and LA-based indie Glass Entertainment Group.
In his new role, Mills will be charged with overseeing every aspect of the company, from sales and business to creative initiatives. He will evenly divide his time between Philadelphia and New York and report to company CEO and executive producer Nancy Glass when he joins the prodco on July 25.
Prior to joining ICM Partners as an alternative television packaging agent, where he repped Glass Entertainment Group, Mills held a number of senior leadership roles within the media sector, including as a director of development at National Geographic Channel, VP of acquisitions for North America at Zodiak Rights and sales executive for international distribution at Shine International.
Glass Entertainment Group was previously known as Nancy Glass Productions and most recently inked an exclusive development and partnership deal with Toronto’s Sweatshop Media.
The company’s production roster includes such non-fiction series as Animal Planet’s Tanked and The Vet Life; History’s Big Easy Motors; Travel Channel’s Todd Carmichael’s Uncommon Grounds; HGTV’s Desert Flippers; Cooking Channel’s Get Trucked; and Food Network’s Save My Bakery.
“We’ve had a great business relationship over the past year and a half, so it was only natural to take it to this next step and I believe that JC Mills is going to help us take our company to the next level,” Glass told realscreen.
“It was very clear from the beginning that we were a very good business match,” she continued. “JC and I thought the same way, he’s very entrepreneurial and we were very interested in expanding in all different kinds of directions. He has helped us do that in everything from scripted to different areas of reality that we had not been in before to digital, which we had been in before.”
