TV prodco and digital studio Meetinghouse Productions has appointed Bryan Odom to the newly created role of vice-president of digital strategy and production.
Under Odom, Meetinghouse studios in NYC and LA will develop, produce, and distribute original digital content which can migrate to linear TV and international distribution. He will also oversee content for original comedy sites Chuckler.com, Almost Genius and World’s Dumbest on Facebook and YouTube.
The new VP comes to the company from Jukin Media, where he served as VP of production, overseeing the implementation of original production across linear, digital and OTT. Odom managed a digital team that produced nearly 400 pieces of content per month, generating close to one-and-a-half billion views monthly across multiple platforms.
Odom has also held senior production roles at Pilgrim Studios and Nash Entertainment, where he worked on a portfolio of shows for History Channel, Spike and truTV.
“We’ve established ourselves in the traditional TV-production business, and we’ve had some great success doing the same with our digital efforts. Now we want to take those brands up a level, and we need a strong digital strategy to achieve that. Bryan has the skills to help us amplify what we’re already doing and push us in new directions he thinks are smart. With his help, we intend to build a sustainable linear/digital model that will give all of our content the best chance of success,” said Jason Cilo, president of Meetinghouse Productions, in a statement.
