Hollywood- and London-based indie AGC Studios has tapped former Warrior Poets creative executive Rachel Traub as VP of non-fiction content.
Traub will be responsible for AGC’s development and production of non-scripted projects for both film and television. She will work closely with Greg Shapiro, AGC Studios’ head of film, and AGC Television president Lourdes Diaz to produce a slate of feature documentaries and non-fiction series.
In addition, Traub will work closely alongside David Schulhof, president of AGC Studios’ music division, to develop music-focused documentaries and series.
Traub holds close to a decade’s worth of industry experience as a producer and creative executive. Notably, she oversaw feature film development and copros at Warrior Poets, the New York prodco founded by Morgan Spurlock, where her credits included The Devil We Know (2018), Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken! (2017) and No Man’s Land (2017).
Most recently, Traub served as a consultant to the non-fiction programming team at Topic, First Look Media’s entertainment studio arm, over a seven month period. She also served as an acquisitions executive at Paris-based company Wild Bunch.
“Rachel’s extensive experience and relationships in the non-fiction universe will give AGC an important additional pipeline of premium film and TV content alongside our existing feature film, scripted and unscripted television, music, urban and Latin x output,” said AGC Studios chairman and CEO Stuart Ford in a statement.
Launched in February 2017 by Ford, AGC Studios serves as a platform to develop, produce, finance and globally license feature films, scripted, unscripted and factual television, digital and musical content. Its distribution arm, AGC International, has recently closed deals for several territories for Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11 following its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
The company, which also includes sales and distribution arm AGC International, is backed by three strategic investors and includes private asset management firm MediaNet Partners; Greg Clark, Symantec CEO and founder and chairman of Fibonacci Films; and Image Nation Abu Dhabi.
