Cineflix Productions and Ping Pong Productions have partnered to launch Shiny Screens Entertainment, a Los Angeles-based joint venture with showrunner Will Spjut.
The prodco will develop and produce high-value unscripted series and formats for the global market.
Spjut (pictured) is a 20-year TV industry veteran with development executive producer credits across unscripted, branded entertainment and live music event production, including Border Wars, Building Wild and Die Trying for Nat Geo; Fox’s Home Free; Nashville Star for USA Network; and The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals for Netflix.
Shiny Screens Entertainment is the latest production outfit to join Cineflix Media’s group of JVs and producer partnerships, a lineup that includes Toronto-based Husk Media and More to the Story Media; New York’s First Story Productions; Montreal-based Connect3 Media; and London-based Buccaneer Media.
“Will arrives with a proven track record and strong relationships among leading networks and platforms which made this partnership an easy decision. Incorporating the expertise of Ping Pong and Cineflix Productions along with Will’s unique skillset and approach to storytelling equates to Shiny Screens being a juggernaut for years to come,” Brumels, creative director and co-owner, Ping Pong Productions, said in a statement.
“Will is not only a brilliant developer, but he has successfully produced in virtually every genre across streaming, broadcast, and cable, and Ping Pong has a strong track record in producing unmissable original content—we’re all pumped about what we will be able to accomplish together with this exciting new joint venture,” added J.C. Mills, president and commercial director, Cineflix Productions.
