AMC Networks has promoted Marco Bresaz and Kelly Nash to SVP and VP roles, respectively, within its non-fiction and alternative programming group, which develops and oversees unscripted content for AMC, BBC America and SundanceTV.

Bresaz (pictured, left) joined the company in 2010 as vice president of original programming and development for SundanceTV. In 2013, he joined AMC’s non-fiction and alternative programming team. His credits include Ride with Norman Reedus, Making Of The Mob: NY and Chicago, The American West, Comic Book Men, Game of Arms and the upcoming Hip Hop: The Songs That Shook America. He added Sundance TV to his purview in 2015, and BBC America in 2018. His SundanceTV credits include Cold Blooded: The Clutter Family Murders and The Preppy Murder: Death In Central Park.

He was previously a VP at TV Land, and has held senior positions at TNN, Spike TV, Nick at Night and ABC Daytime.

Meanwhile, Nash (right) joined AMC in 2015 as director of non-fiction and alternative programming. In that role, she has overseen AMC Visionaries, the docuseries that explores different pop culture genres of particular interest to fans of AMC’s scripted programming. Seasons have included James Cameron’s Secret History of Science Fiction, Robert Kirkman’s Secret History of Comics and Eli Roth’s History of Horror. She also helped shepherd true crime docuseries Ministry of Evil: The Twisted Cult of Tony Alamo and No One Saw A Thing for SundanceTV.

She was previously a development executive at Fishbowl Worldwide Media, New Line Television, Oxygen Media and CAA.

“Marco and Kelly have proven themselves to be two of the best creative executives in our business and have played an integral role in the evolution of non-fiction programming on our networks,” said Eliot Goldberg, AMC Networks’ EVP of non-fiction and alternative programming, in a statement. “Our non-fiction series have proven not only to be excellent complements to our scripted programming, but critical and ratings successes in their own right. Marco and Kelly have been instrumental in that growth and success and we’re thrilled to have them continue to build our non-fiction lineup across all three networks.”
