Nick Rigg, most recently president of ITV America-owned Loud TV, has joined Tony DiSanto’s DIGA Studios to head up its unscripted division.
Rigg established Loud TV as a joint venture with Brent Montgomery and Leftfield Entertainment in 2013. With Loud, Rigg was behind such projects as Tiny House Nation on FYI and A&E as well as its spin-offs; Double Take with John Cena for Facebook Watch, and Girls Incarcerated for Netflix. Prior to Loud TV, Rigg served as president of Leopard Films USA.
DIGA Studios was formerly part of the ITV America stable of acquired prodcos, until 2017, when DiSanto and financier Matthew J. Bruderman reacquired the equity interests in the company held by ITV. In the fall of 2018, the pair announced the formation of Allyance Media Group, which houses DIGA Studios.
The prodco was founded in 2011 by DiSanto and former MTV colleague Liz Gateley, under the name DiGa Vision.
“Nick Rigg is a strategic, thoughtful, and seasoned executive with a clear and infectious passion for making great content.”, said DiSanto in a statement. “His expertise and vision will elevate DIGA Studios, the cornerstone of the Allyance Media Group, and I couldn’t be more excited to hand him the keys to the unscripted division and jump in for the ride.”
