U.S. network AMC hired Marco Bresaz (pictured) to serve as VP of unscripted programming, joining from sister network Sundance Channel.
Bresaz, who served as VP of original programming and development for Sundance, will report to AMC’s senior VP of unscripted programming Eliot Goldberg in his new role.
“Marco is a talented executive with a great creative eye and a record of developing distinctive original content across a variety of networks,” Goldberg said.
“He is a terrific addition to our growing unscripted team at AMC and will play a major role in driving our efforts to find and develop quality unscripted programming that connects with viewers and lives comfortably alongside our award-winning and critically-acclaimed scripted series and some of the most celebrated films ever made.”
At Sundance Channel, Bresaz developed and oversaw series including Push Girls, Dream School and The Writers’ Room. Prior to joining the network in 2010, Bresaz held senior programming and development positions at TV Land, Spike TV and ABC Daytime.
AMC’s unscripted slate includes Comic Book Men; Small Town Security and Game of Arms.
