California-based prodco Renegade 83 has named Emmy-winning reality TV exec Bob Kusbit as head of development.
In the new role, Kusbit will oversee Renegade’s stable of reality projects for broadcast networks, cable and first-run syndication while managing the company’s internal development slate.
In addition, Kusbit’s production outfit One Louder Productions will fold into the Renegade umbrella, which launched in 1994 and is an Entertainment One company.
Kusbit and One Louder’s production credits include more than 300 episodes of MTV’s Emmy-winning Made and two TV films based on the Made franchise.
Kusbit has previously served in a variety of capacities, including as president of Maury Povich’s MoPo Productions, senior VP of production at MTV and head of development for CMT, where he launched hit series Gone Country and My Big Redneck Wedding.
“We’re very excited that Bob and One Louder have joined the Renegade 83 and eOne family. Bob’s wide-ranging broadcast experience, sharp instincts and his knack for putting shows together will help keep our incredible momentum going as we prepare for future growth and a world-class lineup,” said David Garfinkle and Jay Renfroe, co-presidents and CEOs of Renegade 83, in a statement.
