Shout! Factory Jan. 11 named industry veteran Brent Haynes to spearhead television development at Shout! Studios, the indie distributor’s upstart original content unit.
Haynes, who once was SVP, series development, comedy & animation at MTV, will work with Shout founders Richard and Garson Foos, Bob Emmer and David McIntosh, SVP, content licensing and strategy.
Most recently, Haynes was executive producer at Picture Arcade, co-creating comedy “Crash Gallery” for Canadian Broadcasting Company.
“[Haynes] holds an extensive background and success in production development for scripted series and original specials with an emphasis in comedy,” Garson Foos said in a statement. “Given the success we’re having producing new ‘Mystery Science Theater 3000’ episodes and several projects in development, we look forward to Brent playing a major role in this growth area for the studio.”
