David Janollari Entertainment, the production company former MTV head of programming Janollari launched in May in conjunction with a pod deal at Universal TV, has hired Anne-Marie McGintee and Chris Markey as VP of development. The company has already sold a couple of projects to NBC, multi-camera comedy Gifted from writer David Bickel and a romantic comedy from writer Paul Ruehl. McGintee reunites with Janollari — she previously worked as director of development of scripted series at MTV under him. Markey was most recently manager of drama development and current programming at Chernin Entertainment.
