New York-based unscripted prodco Hit+Run has elevated Noah Korn to vice president of development.
In Korn’s expanded role, he will continue to work alongside Hit+Run founder and executive producer Rob Shaftel, to whom he will continue to report. Korn is tasked with developing narrative-driven factual series and original formats for broadcast, cable and digital platforms.
Additionally, Korn (pictured) will oversee the creative studio’s development slate that currently includes Animal Planet’s I Was Prey, Red BullTV’s Way Past Midnight and Complex Networks’ American Down Low.
Prior to Hit+Run, Korn served as director of development in ITV Studios America where he helped to establish the firm’s development casting team and developed such series as Science Channel’s Secret Space Escapes, Discovery’s Rebel Gold and Animal Planet’s Rocky Mountain Bounty Hunters.
Korn’s further credits include TLC’s Four Weddings, VH1′s I Want to Work for Diddy, syndicated series The Dr. Oz Show and the BBC’s Watchdog.
Hit+Run most recently inked a copro deal with former Red Bull Media House executive Brian Lavin and his newly launched prodco, Bee Media, to create, develop and produce unscripted programming to be co-produced with Hit+Run in the U.S., Canada and UK.
Since having launched in April 2016, Hit+Run has worked alongside RedBull TV, Animal Planet, Complex Networks, History, National Geographic, Nat Geo Wild and Oxygen.
“Noah joined Hit+Run at its inception in 2016, and within the first year we sold four series,” said Shaftel. “He has a keen eye for identifying talent, strong relationships within the community and has been integral in creating the visual style of the brand.”
