Viceland, the lifestyle and entertainment network from VICE Media and A+E Networks, has added MTV veteran Lauren Dolgen as head of West Coast development for the network.

Dolgen will oversee west coast-based production and development for the year-old network.

Dolgen joins Viceland after nearly 20 years at MTV where she served as executive vice-president, series development and head of unscripted programming. She oversaw the creation and production of shows such as Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 and helped create the 16 and Pregnant series.

In addition, Dolgen developed and oversaw a huge slate of development and current series as well as multiple successful series with Rob Dyrdek including the long-running Ridiculousness now going into its tenth season.

“As a producer I was lucky enough to work with Lauren on more projects than I remember. I was always impressed with her ability to find and develop new material, her deep commitment to talent, and her capacity to help any project always find the best version of itself. We’re incredibly lucky to have to her,” said Viceland co-president Derek Freda, in a statement.
