AMC Networks has promoted two key executives in its non-fiction and alternative programming group — Marco Bresaz to senior vice president of non-fiction and alternative programming, and Kelly Nash to a vp role. The group is responsible for developing and overseeing unscripted content for AMC, BBC America and SundanceTV.
The non-fiction group’s slate includes hit series Talking Dead, Eli Roth’s History of Horror, Ride with Norman Reedus and James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction, as well as critically-acclaimed true crime docuseries Jonestown: Terror in the Jungle, Cold Blooded: The Clutter Family Murders and the forthcoming The Preppy Murder: Death in Central Park.
“Marco and Kelly have proven themselves to be two of the best creative executives in our business and have played an integral role in the evolution of non-fiction programming on our networks,” said Eliot Goldberg, the company’s executive vice president of nonfiction and alternative programming. “Our non-fiction series have proven not only to be excellent complements to our scripted programming, but critical and ratings successes in their own right. Marco and Kelly have been instrumental in that growth and success and we’re thrilled to have them continue to build our non-fiction lineup across all three networks.”
