New York- and LA-based factual indie Hot Snakes Media has tapped Colleen Conway Grogan as its new senior vice president of development.
Grogan (pictured) is tasked with expanding both Hot Snakes’ scripted and unscripted slates, as well as being involved in the company’s efforts in podcasts and documentaries.
She assumed the role in the fall, based in the New York office, and reports to Hot Snakes co-founder Eric Evangelista.
She was previously vice president of non-fiction at Lifetime, where she developed and oversaw female-skewing documentary series and character-led formats, including Bring It!, The Rap Game, Kim of Queens, Date Night Live and The Sisterhood: Becoming Nuns.
“Shannon and I have known Colleen for over a decade. Colleen is among the most-liked and accomplished executives in the business, with a fantastic track record of developing great series,” said Evangelista in a statement. “We know Colleen will be an amazing asset to the company and we’re thrilled she’s joining Hot Snakes Media.”
