2C Creative & Content has hired Tim Hamilton as sr. VP, development. The production company that helped launch Hamilton’s development career has brought him back onboard as it celebrates its 10th anniversary with an eye toward expanding its unscripted slate. Hamilton brings a credit list that includes creating and producing series for VH1, A+E, TLC, UP, Animal Planet, Destination America and Travel Channel.
“With his background in our sweet spot, Tim is the natural choice to champion the expansion of 2C’s development slate as we head into our next decade,” said Chris Sloan, founder and chief creative officer of 2C, which is represented by William Morris Endeavor Entertainment. Carla Kayufman Sloan is 2C’s co-founder.
Hamilton first met the Sloans while he and Carla were producing series for Telepictures in Los Angeles. A few months later, Chris and Carla Sloan launched 2C Media in Miami, asked Hamilton to join them and gave him his first opportunity to executive produce and run a series. He produced “Project: Freshman,” “Be a Red Star” and the “My Network Premiere Special” before taking an opportunity to continue his development career in L.A.
“It is such a wonderful and rare opportunity to rejoin the company that helped launch my career over a decade ago,” said Hamilton. “I’m excited to work with Chris and Carla in not only building on 2C’s strong development slate, but also helping to bring their efforts to new heights.”
Most recently, Hamilton served as VP of development at Tremendous! Entertainment in Los Angeles where he launched the West Coast development and production office, while overseeing the company’s new slate of domestic and international television projects. He created and executive produced “Ghost Asylum” for Destination America, “Angels Among Us” for TLC, “Off Pitch” for VH1, “Ghostland, Tennessee” for Animal Planet, “Family Addition with Leigh Anne Tuohy” for UP, and “Bama State Style” for A+E. Prior to joining Tremendous, Hamilton was part of the development team at 495 Productions.
He is a member of the Producers Guild of America and the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and has been honored with multiple Telly Awards and a Webby Award nomination for his work as executive producer of 2C’s “Project: Freshman.”
Over the past 10 years, 2C has created and produced such original series and specials as “Growing Up Gator” (GAC), “Florida Untamed” (Animal Planet), “Airport 24/7: Miami” (Travel Channel) and “Swamp Wars” (Animal Planet).
