Los Angeles-based Confluential Films is expanding its film and television teams, including the addition of Kristen V. Carter as director of unscripted development.
In the newly created role, Carter will oversee the development and expansion of Confluential Films’ unscripted slate, focusing primarily on premium docuseries, specials and “feel-good reality TV.”
Carter is the founder of JazziDreamer Entertainment, a multimedia company specializing in writing and production services. She has produced for a variety of television programs including Emmy Award-winning singing competition series The Voice, BET’s Black Girls Rock, and MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew.
The executive’s professional experience spans across formats including documentary, competition, live events, digital content and narrative film.
Elsewhere, Billy Mulligan has joined Confluential as head of feature film. He will EP writer/director Nijla Mu’min’s feature film Jinn, a coming of age drama slated to bow in competition at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas. Mulligan currently serves as co-executive producer of OWN docuseries Black Love — a series which spotlights love stories from the Black community. He will continue in a supervisory role on select unscripted projects.
Confluential has also brought Chris Blythewood on as director of development. Bythewood began his career with the Fox Broadcasting Company, having worked on series such as The Chicago Code and Shots Fired.
Confluential is also in post-post production on the second season of Black Love, with additional unscripted series in the works.
