Sherman Oaks-based GRB Entertainment has inked a first-look deal with veteran unscripted producer Damon Epps to develop and produce formats and docuseries under his Goodtimes USA banner.
Epps will work with GRB development VPs Megan Reeves, Chris Powers and Vanessa McCullers to develop and bring what the Intervention producer calls “loud projects with heart” to the market.
Having worked extensively with 495 Productions and Jupiter Entertainment, Epps’ production credits include NBC’s America’s Got Talent, MTV’s Shot at Love with Tila Tequila and Jersey Shore, VH1′s Tool Academy, and CNBC’s Blue Collar Millionaire as well as launching successful first seasons of shows such as CMT’s Party Down South, OWN’s Six Little McGhees, TLC’s Welcome to Myrtle Manor, and A&E’s Rodeo Girls. He also co-created MTV’s Friend Zone with 495′s SallyAnn Salsano.
“We are thrilled to have Damon broaden GRB’s growing creative landscape with his energy and track record in the unscripted genre,” said Marielle Zuccarelli, GRB Entertainment COO, in a statement.
