Cris Abrego, chair of Endemol Shine Americas and CEO of Endemol Shine North America, will be honored at a special event in Santa Monica this June.
Reality television producers and executives will come together for the second annual “Let’s Get Real” event, to be held on Tuesday, June 6. It will honor Abrego for his professional and philanthropic work, and raise funds for the Saban Community Clinic, a federally qualified health center that serves low-income and uninsured men, women and children in the Los Angeles area.
Opened in 1967, the clinic, formerly the Lost Angeles Free Clinic, celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year.
Co-chaired by APA Partner and head of alternative and factual programming Hayden Meyer, ITV Entertainment president David Eilenberg , and APA partner and alternative and factual agent Marc Kamler, “Let’s Get Real” aims to springboard off the success of last year’s inaugural event.
“We are proud to honor Cris at this year’s “Let’s Get Real” for being a champion for the patients Saban Community Clinic serves. Cris understands the healthcare hardships that many low-income residents of Los Angeles face and is committed to supporting the organization’s mission,” said co-chair Eilenberg in a statement.
Abrego oversees both the North American and Latin American divisions of Endemol Shine Group, the global independent content creator, producer and distributor. Endemol Shine Group’s portfolio of hits include Big Brother (CBS), MasterChef and MasterChef Junior (FOX), Billion Dollar Buyer (CNBC), Kingdom (AT&T Audience Network) and Hunted (CBS).
