In a move that will put more power behind its aggressive unscripted television slate, 2C Media has appointed Igal Svet its Vice President of Development. In this Miami-based role, Svet will be instrumental in not only spearheading the production company's unscripted development slate, but in also pitching and selling the projects. He will report directly to 2C Media President/co-founder Chris Sloan and Carla Kaufman Sloan.
"Igal has a demonstrated vision and the perfect background to help take 2C's unscripted efforts to the next level," said Sloan in making today's announcement. "With two series on air this summer and a host of projects in development, the timing is right. We're pleased to welcome him to the team and eager to see where his vision takes us."
Svet joins 2C Media as the company prepares to premiere its fifth cable television series, Travel Channel's "Airport 24/7: Miami," and just following Animal Planet's second season premiere of "Swamp Wars." These latest successes—coupled with the Sloans' passion for creating compelling entertainment—are fueling the expansion of 2C Media's original, unscripted television efforts.
"This is an exceptional company building strong momentum across the board, and I'm thrilled to take up the challenge of expanding 2C Media's original programming portfolio with innovative new shows," said Svet. "2C Media is strongly positioned for a bright future in a time of great change, and this is exactly where I need to be."
Most recently, Svet served as Producer on a range of major cable network series, including truTV's "Full Throttle Saloon," History's "Top Gear" and Lifetime's "Love Handles." He previously played an instrumental role at BBC Worldwide's development department in Los Angeles, and worked alongside industry veterans Ben Silverman and Howard T. Owens at Reveille. Svet graduated magna cum laude from Boston University.
