Hulu Originals continues to expand its team, appointing Dane Joseph its new director of unscripted series.

In the role, Joseph will oversee Hulu’s growing slate of unscripted original series from development through production. He will report to Belisa Balaban, head of unscripted and documentaries for Hulu Originals.

Joseph has more than a decade of experience and joins Hulu from MTV Entertainment Group, where he served as vice president of development, developing the company’s true crime portfolio with Infamy: When Fame Turns Deadly and the upcoming My True Crime Story, in addition to developing series like My Celebrity Dream Wedding and True Life: First Time First Responders.

Prior to his time at MTV and VH1, Joseph worked at Hot Snakes Media, creating Your Husband is Cheating on Us for Bravo and working in development and casting for series across various networks including The Sisterhood: Becoming Nuns for Lifetime, Breaking Amish, Return to Amish and Escaping Alaska for TLC and Extinct or Alive for Animal Planet, among others.

“It is my great pleasure to welcome Dane to Hulu as we expand our offering of unscripted Original series,” said Balaban in a release. “He has great creative instincts, as well as the skill, relationships and experience to execute at the highest level.”

Added Joseph: “I am grateful to Belisa and Rob Mills for welcoming me aboard and entrusting me to deliver the highest quality unscripted programming for the Hulu audience… This is an incredible opportunity and I look forward to contributing to the continued success of the unscripted team.”
