Married at First Sight and Seven Year Switch producer Kinetic Content has upped Eric Detwiler to executive producer, in charge of programming.

In his new role, Detwiler will oversee the delivery of Kinetic’s slate of programs, reporting to founder and CEO Chris Coelen.

Since 2014, Detwiler has led the production of a number of series at Kinetic Content, including the Little Women franchise for Lifetime.

“Eric Detwiler is an incredibly talented creative producer and true leader. We’re thrilled to have him take on this new role which will allow us to continue our rapid expansion while maintaining the quality of our programs,” said Coelen, in a statement.

Before joining Kinetic, Detwiler was executive producer for shows such as Southern Charm (Bravo) and The T.O Show (Vh1). His showrunning credits include series and specials for MTV, VH1, CMT, Bravo, and Lifetime.

He got his start at MTV Networks in 2001 working for the Music and Talent Development Department and with MTV News.

Kineti is backed by Red Arrow Entertainment Group and has produced shows for multiple networks including ABC’s The Taste and My Diet Is Better Than Yours, NBC’s  Betty White’s Off Their Rockers, and Lifetime’s Married at First Sight.

New Kinetic series premiering this year include The Spouse House, Married at First Sight: Second Chances, Little Women: Couples Retreat and Man Vs Master.
