North Hollywood-based production company Pilgrim Media Group has lifted development executive Nicole Silveira to head of development and VP of the Wicked Tuna creator.

In her new role, Silveira will be tasked with overseeing the development department and will work closely alongside chief creative officer Johnny Gould, to whom she reports.

Silveira, who joined Pilgrim in early 2016 as VP of unscripted development, has been instrumental in expanding the operation’s development slate, having launched unscripted series and formats with more than a dozen networks and OTT platforms.

“Nicole is a dynamic and critical player here at Pilgrim. She is a fantastic leader and her creativity sets the bar high for everyone who works with her,” said Pilgrim Media Group CEO Craig Piligian in a statement. “We are thrilled to have her as a part of the team and are happy to recognize the contributions she already has made to the company in a short period of time.”

Prior to boarding Pilgrim, Silveira served as a development executive for both ITV Studios America and Gurney Productions, focusing on broadcast and international format development.

Before that, she held a variety of titles in nine years at NBCUniversal, before being elevated to director of alternative programming and development. Here, Silveira developed and launched such series as The Sing-OffMinute To Win It and Who’s Still Standing?.
