The New York-based independent production company Magilla Entertainment has launched Mix Tape Media, a new prodco with Seanbaker Carter, former president of Powderhouse Productions.
Based out of Boston, Mix Tape will create, develop and produce unscripted and branded content across a range of mediums. At the new company, Carter (pictured) is joined by longtime collaborator Jared Morris as his head of development. Morris worked in editorial on HBO’s Rome, Entourage and The Pacific, before teaming up with Carter.
Carter has created, formatted, produced, and overseen series for multiple networks including VH1′s Swab Stories, Animal Planet’s Dogs 101 and America’s Cutest franchises, A&E’s 60 Seconds to Sell and Southie Rules, and Bravo’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. More recently, he is credited with creating The Art Institutes Uncontainable, a cross-platform competition series for AI showcasing some of the most talented artists on the web.
Mix Tape is one of the 10 new companies to join the Nonfiction Producers Association following Realscreen’s Summit last week in Washington, D.C., bringing NPA membership total to 52 across Canada and the U.S.
