Toronto-based factual producer Proper Television has bolstered its development team with the addition of former Muse Entertainment producer Matt Mitchell.

In his new role as a development producer, Mitchell (pictured) will be charged with promoting the Canadian company’s unscripted slate to the U.S. market.

Proper Television’s current factual stable includes CBC’s forthcoming docuseries True North Calling (6 x 30 minutes), Discovery Channel U.S.’s Vegas Rat Rods, CTV’s MasterChef Canada, Discovery Canada’s Tougher Than It Looks? and Canada’s Worst Driver.

As a development producer of non-scripted programming at Muse, Mitchell was responsible for managing the development of all unscripted television projects from concept to network order while working with third party producers and execs to advance the development of copros for the international marketplace. 

Mitchell now joins development producer Mike Armitage and recently promoted development manager Brenda Myers.

“Proper Television has made strong headway in the U.S. and we are committed to continuing our expansion stateside,” said Guy O’Sullivan, president of Proper Television, in a statement. “Matt brings his unique experience with U.S./Canada co-productions and partnerships to our rapidly growing slate of original productions, and with strong, existing relationships within the U.S., he is perfectly positioned to lead the further expansion of our business.”
