He began his career on A&E’s Growing up Gotti and has worked alongside industry heavyweights including Oprah Winfrey, Diane von Fürstenberg, Cyndi Lauper and Paula Abdul, for series on networks and platforms including Netflix, CBS, Bravo, E! and MTV.

Rolov has served as executive producer and showrunner on series including Real Housewives of New Jersey, The Real Housewives of New York City, The Hills and Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, for which he won an Emmy for outstanding reality program.

He previously collaborated with Truly Original on OWN’s Season 25: Oprah Behind the Scenes and Bravo’s Princesses of Long Island.

“We’ve had the privilege of working with Lenid on past projects and have always admired his seemingly limitless capabilities in helming unscripted series,” said Hersh and Weinstock, in a joint statement. “We’re seizing this opportunity to bring him into the Truly Original fold and are looking forward to working with him closely on content that showcases great stories, and unique new personalities and subcultures.”

“Steven and Glenda share my passion for championing both emerging and established talent through compelling storytelling and innovative formats,” added Rolov. “I look forward to joining forces with them and the Truly Original team to develop content that will excite both buyers and viewers alike.”
