Knoxville-headquartered prodco Jupiter Entertainment, a subsidiary of Sky, has bolstered its creative team with the hiring of Chris Spry while promoting seasoned executives Harrison Land and Todd Moss.

Most recently, Spry served as SVP of production and development at Hudsun Media where his credits included ABC’s The Toy Box and Facebook Watch’s Returning the Favor. Additional production credits include Million Dollar Listing, Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best, and Married To Medicine.
“Chris brings a wealth of expertise and the perfect development background as we position our efforts to build on these new opportunities,” said Jupiter’s recently appointed president Patrick Reardon in a statement.

In his expanded role, Land will add premium factual content to his growing roster of true crime projects. Based in New York, Land will report directly into Reardon.
Land has been responsible for developing and producing more than 20 series and specials across a variety of genres and networks, including Investigation Discovery’s The Atlanta Child Murders, In Pursuit with John Walsh, Southern Gothic and Murder Mystery; ABC’s Game Changers with Robin Roberts; TVOne’s Fatal Attractions; and History’s God Code.
Moss has spent more than 10 years with Jupiter, where he’s played a crucial role in developing and managing some of the studio’s most successful programs, including Oxygen’s Snapped and ID’s Homicide Hunter. His executive production credits include the feature-length documentary First to the Pole for Discovery and the tentatively titled Fourth and Forever: Muck City.
Moss also reports into Reardon but is based in Knoxville.
“With strong creative voices, deep relationships in the community and stellar track records for breakout programming, Harrison and Todd have been an integral component to Jupiter’s success,” Reardon added. “Their continued leadership will be invaluable as Jupiter expands in the years to come.”
