New York-based indie prodco Big Fish Entertainment has tapped Lucilla D’Agostino (pictured) as its first chief creative officer.
D’Agostino, most recently executive vice president, current programming and development at Sirens Media, will lead Big Fish’s creative strategy and oversee the company’s original programming and development. The executive will also drive international format sales and acquisitions.
The company behind A&E’s Live PD is also branching out with a new division, Spearfish Creative, dedicated to digital and branded entertainment.
Big Fish has elevated SVP of development George McTeague to EVP of development to spearhead the new initiative.
In his new role, McTeague will lead the development and sales of digital and branded entertainment content, and develop partnerships with brands and talent. He will carry on and serve as executive producer on Big Fish’s series such as Live PD and Hustle & Soul (WE tv). Additionally, McTeague will create new IP for the digital market and offer advertisers the chance to produce original programming for broadcast, cable and digital/OTT.
Both McTeague and D’Agostino report to Big Fish Entertainment founder and president Dan Cesareo.
