APA has promoted Brian Speiser to VP and rebranded its alternative television department.
The Beverly Hills-headquartered talent agency’s alternative division, which it started in 2006, will now be known as the alternative and factual programming department.
Speiser joined the agency in 2012. He was formerly VP at the agency Octagon, where he co-founded the entertainment division and exec produced the MTV series It Gets Better.
“Brian’s promotion and the rebranding of our department are direct reflections of our distinctive role in today’s global, multi-platform alternative and factual programming marketplace,” said partner and head of the division Hayden Meyer in a statement.
The agency’s unscripted roster includes 5X5 Media, Back Roads Entertainment, Cineflix Productions, Collins Avenue, Hot Snakes Media, Ping Pong Productions, Super Delicious and Tremendous! Entertainment.
