Under the pact, Porporino (pictured) will work with the Los Angeles-based studio to produce an extensive array of unscripted and scripted projects currently in development.
“We’re embarking on an exciting collaboration, super-charging a variety of projects already in development. I’ve been a huge fan of Thom Beers and Jeff Conroy for years,” Porporino said in a statement. “Now to be working closely with them is truly an honor. I’m most passionate about championing emerging talent, compelling storytelling, and exploring innovative formats, a thru line of all of my projects.”
BoBCat was founded in 2016 by former Original Productions’ founder Thom Beers, former Original president and executive producer Jeff Conroy, and former Huffington Post and AOL exec Sarah Bernard. The company places a premium on being platform agnostic, and approaches every new project through a multi-platform lens.
