Alkemy X has added veteran producer and development executive, Glen Freyer, as Senior Vice President TV & Digital Content to its ever-growing creative team. Freyer will work alongside Executive Vice President TV & Digital Content, Andy Singer, atop the company’s rapidly expanding Originals division. Freyer will develop scripted and unscripted content for both linear and digital platforms, including broadcast, streaming, web and branded. He joins a diversely talented team that is already leveraging Alkemy X’s success in original content and VFX into the emerging fields of web series and branded entertainment.
Freyer has held senior roles with Loud TV, Bobby Flay’s Rock Shrimp Productions, Atlas Media and TruTV/Court TV. He has been consulting with Alkemy X for several months and has already played a key role developing and producing recent projects for Google, Discovery Networks and other clients. With 20 years in the industry, Freyer has personally executive produced or produced more than 800 episodes of network television and created and/or sold an additional 350 episodes. His credits include the hit Travel Channel series Hotel Impossible and Investigation Discovery’s Stalked: Someone’s Watching, among many others.
“Glen is an extremely creative and well-regarded producer, writer and director with deep contacts who will be a huge asset to us as we develop and launch new series,” said Singer. “He brings experience as a creator, buyer and seller of high-quality content across a range of genres and formats. We are very excited to welcome him to Alkemy X.”
“I’m thrilled to work with Andy, Brittany George and the rest of the dev team. They always keep the drama in front of the camera, not behind it,” said Freyer. “Our focus is primarily nonfiction, but we will follow every opportunity to leverage Alkemy X’s considerable resources and bring premium content to life.”
Alkemy X’s Originals division produced the long-running Food Network series Restaurant: Impossible, Velocity’s Unique Rides and Fuse’s recent The 212. Alkemy X is currently producing a project for TLC slated to debut in 2019 and is actively developing new series for Discovery, Food Network and others.
At Rock Shrimp Productions, Freyer served as Executive Vice President of Development, working with celebrity chef Bobby Flay. He spent six years as Senior Vice President for Development at Atlas Media and three years as the senior buyer for Court TV/TruTV. Freyer was also a development executive and executive producer at 20th Television’s Fox Lab, and began his television career as a writer/producer on the hit reality series Blind Date. Freyer has also sold numerous screenplays over the years to Fox 2000, Icon Films and Shoreline Entertainment, among others.
