Bodega Pictures, the full-service indie prodco behind such unscripted series as Girl Meets Farm and sMothered, is bolstering its production and development teams with a series of new hires and promotions.
Highlighting the company’s personnel moves is Daytime Emmy-winning executive Matt Bordofsky (pictured above), who will take on the role of vice president of production. Bordofsky, who’s produced more than 850 hours of broadcast TV in his 25-year career, will oversee Bodega’s current slate of programming including recently premiered series like Hustle & Tow on A&E and Extreme Sisters on TLC. Previously, Bordofsky worked as executive vice president of production for Banca Studios.
Bodega also promoted head of development Andy McEntee from vice president to senior vice president of the department, where he’s shepherded hit series like Girl Meets Farm (Food Network), Rehab Addict: Rescue (HGTV) and You, Me & My Ex (TLC). McEntee has worked at Bodega since 2015, after serving as vice president of development at Cineflix Productions.
The production company is also elevating Paul Head from casting director to vice president of casting & development. His previous credits include sMothered and the documentary special Big & Little, both airing on TLC, as well as Rehab Addict: Rescue and Tiny Luxury, both for HGTV. Head also previously worked for Cineflix where he cast projects for National Geographic, FYI and the History Channel.
Finally, Sarah Trilla (pictured, right) has joined the company as director of development from Disney, where she worked as an associate producer on several projects including the Jim Henson Company’s celebrity talk show Earth to Ned. She also worked as a development producer for NBCUniversal focusing on unscripted lifestyle programming.
“We at Bodega have been privileged to scale our production and development over the past year to a degree that necessitated the support of such quality creatives. We’re thrilled to welcome Matt whose business acumen and track record of leadership are second to none, and Sarah whose impeccable taste is a boon to our team,” said Bodega Pictures president Benjamin Nurick in a news release.
“Additionally, elevating Andy and Paul was a no-brainer given their collective hands-on experience, invaluable industry relationships and sharp creative instincts, and with 75 hours of new programming premiering in 2021, we are more grateful than ever to house such incredible talent to help deliver one-of-a-kind content to our platform partners.”
