ITV-owned producer High Noon Entertainment has bolstered its creative team by promoting a raft of executives, including Scott Feeley to senior VP of programming and development.

In his expanded role, Feeley (pictured, left) will oversee all development and production while generating new character-driven docuseries and original formats for the U.S. marketplace.

In addition, Feeley will manage the firm’s development team. He will report directly to High Noon CEO Jim Berger, with whom he will work creatively alongside exec producing the company’s production catalog in the Denver, Los Angeles and New York offices.

Feeley currently supervises a stable of content that includes HGTV’s Fixer Upper and Good Bones; TLC’s Cake Boss and Sweet 15: Quinceañera; Animal Planet’s Life at Vet U; and Food Network’s Ayesha’s Homemade.

Before joining High Noon, Feeley was a show runner for Pilgrim Films, which included supervising Discovery’s American Chopper.

Elsewhere, the production outfit has elevated Jon Khoshafian (right) to VP of creative and business affairs. Working closely alongside Denver-based VP of development Katie Neff, Khoshafian will lead the LA office’s development team with a focus on formats, emerging media, broadcast network and syndicated programming. Previously, he served as senior director of creative and business affairs.

Julia Plant, Mary-Catherine Parent and Abby Spudich, meanwhile, will move into expanded roles as development managers.

The trio of execs will continue to discover new talent and develop character-driven docuseries around them.
