New York-based multi-platform prodco Hudsun Media has promoted Christopher Spry to SVP, development and production.

In this new role, Spry will work closely with founder and CEO Michael Rourke to oversee Hudsun Media’s current productions, as well as continue to develop content across all networks and platforms.

Spry joined Hudsun Media as development producer in 2014, and was quickly promoted to executive producer. Directors of development Conor McManus and Zander Kanefield will continue to report to Spry in his new role.

Spry began his career as a producer on Million Dollar Listing LA (Bravo). Since then, his credits include Married to Medicine‘s first season for Bravo, Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows Best for WETV, the first season of Big Freedia Queen of Bounce for Fuse and other networks including Lifetime, Reelz, Animal Planet, HGTV, VH1, and AOL.

“As a result of our tremendous growth, which in large part is due to Christopher’s contributions, we have expanded his role with additional responsibility,” said Michael Rourke, founder and CEO of Hudsun Media, in a statement. “Christopher has the perfect combination of skills to help us steer Hudsun Media during a very prolific period: great production experience, creative development instincts, and strong managerial abilities”

Hudsun Media currently has six series in production, including The Toy Box, now in its second season on ABC; a new reality competition modeling series for Lifetime starring Yolanda Hadid; and Investigation Discovery’s Bad Blood, which returned last week for a new season.

Hudsun Media will also be producing the new Facebook series Returning the Favor, fronted by Mike Rowe.
