Jason Goldberg has been upped to chief creative officer for STX’s digital and new media group as well as the alternative content division for STX Entertainment.

Last April, L.A.-based film and television studio STX Entertainment launched a non-scripted television division as part of the firm’s expansion into the television landscape, with Goldberg at the helm.

As president of non-scripted and alternative programming, Goldberg sold and secured deals for 25 shows to networks in U.S., China, India, Southeast Asia and the Middle East. He is currently in production on four series with on-air commitments.

Goldberg is also filming two series orders for 2017, including the first local language television show developed by a U.S.-based entertainment company for broadcast in China, noted a statement from STX.

“As STX Entertainment continues to grow, Jason’s leadership, skill and experience developing highly entertaining and globally-oriented cross-platform programming has proven to be prolific and deserving of recognition as he takes on additional responsibilities involving our expanding digital and new media group,” said Sophie Watts, president of STX Entertainment in a release. “In the last year alone, Jason has spent about seven months on the ground in China and he has proven to be extraordinarily capable, resourceful and reliable as one of our most significant executives and dealmakers.”

Prior to working with STX, Goldberg co-founded and served as CEO of Katalyst Media from 2000 to 2014. There, he was the creator, executive producer and director of MTV’s Punk’d. He produced over 20 television shows around the world, including Beauty and the Geek.
