With AMC recently pulling away from unscripted development, the network’s unscripted executive Andie Beckerman has moved to Syfy. She will serve as VP Alternative Development and Production, developing and overseeing unscripted alternative programming. Based at the network’s Los Angeles office, Beckerman will report to Heather Olander, Syfy’s SVP, Alternative Development and Production, making for a female unscripted programming team at the male-skewing network. (Sharon Levy similarly has been overseeing original series for the testosterone-heavy Spike TV.)
At AMC, Beckerman developed and oversaw current programming on a wide range of unscripted series such as Talking Dead, Comic Book Men and Game Of Arms.
In making the announcement, Olander said, “With Andie’s passion for the genre and her keen creative instincts, she’s a tremendous addition to our programming team”
