San Francisco-headquartered producer Indigo Films has bolstered its development team with the appointment of former A. Smith & Co. Productions exec Katie Hash as senior VP of development, heading up the shop’s newly opened Culver City office.
Hash (pictured) most recently served as VP of development at A. Smith & Co., where she collaborated on a raft of successful programs including NBC’s American Ninja Warrior, Syfy’s Wizard Wars, TVOne’s Unsung, Spike’s UFC Countdown, BET’s American Gangster and truTV’s Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura and Full Throttle Saloon.
Elsewhere, Indigo has elevated Rose Viggiano, formerly director of development, to senior director of development and branded entertainment. Previously, she held the title of senior VP of production and programming at digital venture DanceOn.
Former director of talent Amy Hutchinson has been upped to director of development and talent, and has relocated to Los Angeles from the company’s San Francisco offices. Prior to Indigo, Hutchinson worked as a casting producer for Magical Elves on such series as Top Chef and America’s Next Great Restaurant.
“We’ve expanded not only our development team, but we’re really excited having an LA presence where most of the networks have their teams. We also want to expand to new networks and diversify our production slate,” said Indigo Films’ president David M. Frank in a statement.
