New York-based indie Industrial Media has signed an overall production deal with veteran unscripted series creator, showrunner and executive producer Todd Hurvitz.

Hurvitz (pictured) will work with Industrial’s CEO, Eli Holzman, and president, Aaron Saidman, to develop original series and produce content in various formats.

He is currently the showrunner of the Nickelodeon prank series The Substitute, which is produced by Industrial Media’s The Intellectual Property Corporation (IPC). His other unscripted credits include Ghosts in the Hood, Town of the Living Dead, Porter Ridge, Hack My Life and Summer House.

The deal is the fourth partnership signed by Industrial Media this year. Other recent content deal partners include Radicle Act, recently launched by Hotel Rwanda and Avengers: End Game actor Don Cheadle; Momentum Content and its CEO, Christina Douglas; and director and executive producer Matthew Galkin and his company, Fairhaven Films.

“Securing the best development and show running talent is critical as we expand to meet the demands of this vibrant marketplace,” said Holzman in a statement. “Todd has consistently been one of the most creative and well-rounded producers we know. He has a real gift for storytelling and comedy and we are overjoyed to have him on our team.”

“I began my unscripted career with Eli and Aaron, so I am beyond excited to be working again with two of the most talented people in our business at a company known for delivering some of the most significant and compelling content across all platforms,” added Hurvitz.
