Electus-owned production shingle Big Breakfast has elevated producer, director and writer Luke Kelly-Clyne to head of development.

Kelly-Clyne will oversee the West Hollywood-based prodco’s scripted and unscripted slate across networks and platforms, including current partners such as IFC, Freeform, Facebook, Comedy Central, Disney Channel and truTV, among others.

Kelly-Clyne joined Big Breakfast in January 2017 as director of development and executive producer. Prior to Big Breakfast, Kelly-Clyne was a writer, director and producer at CollegeHumor, in both branded and original content.

Big Breakfast’s production credits include TruTV’s Adam Ruins Everything, recently renewed for a third season; Facebook Watch’s I Want My Phone Back; and MTV’s Middle of the Night Show. The studio also has numerous unscripted series currently in development.

“Luke has been integral in expanding and diversifying Big Breakfast’s slate – everything from scripted comedies and sketch series to new game show formats and other unscripted programming – while forging partnerships with respected names in comedy and other genres,” said Electus COO Drew Buckley in a statement. “Luke’s creative vision and energy is a real asset to Big Breakfast as the studio leans into producing premium comedic content for a range of buyers, while leveraging access to the industry’s top talent through the Electus and Artists First family.”
