Anglo-Dutch producer-distributor Off the Fence (OTF) has hired Havva Eisenbaum (pictured) to serve as VP of development for its recently opened Los Angeles office.
A veteran reality TV development exec, she will expand the company’s U.S. development slate and report to OTF Productions managing director Allison Bean.
Eisenbaum spent eight years as the head of development for PB&J Television where she developed and produced non-fiction series and specials such as HGTV’s The Auction House, Oxygen’s Bachelorette Party Las Vegas and the CW’s Blonde Charity Mafia.
“Our vision with the LA office is to increase our access to U.S. broadcasters, and to continue to create content and programming that will be a hit both within the States and internationally,” said Ellen Windemuth, OTF founder and CEO, in a statement. “Havva brings fantastic experience to the OTF team to help us achieve that goal.”
In June, the company opened the U.S. West Coast outpost and named Fareed Elcott to its senior production team. Recent American commissions include Generation Cryo for MTV, Obese and Expecting for TLC, Stan Lee’s Superhumans for History and Doomsday Garage for CMT.
