Anonymous Content is expanding into the reality arena with a new unscripted TV Content division and has tapped veteran non-scripted producer and network exec David Pritikin to head it.
Pritikin joins Anonymous Content from Discovery Channel where he served as Senior Executive Production and Development, overseeing some of the network’s top series. He was Executive Producer on Deadliest Catch, sharing in the show’s 2014 Emmy win for Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program, as well as on Bering Sea Gold, which logged Discovery’s highest-rated series premiere ever. Prior to Discovery, Pritikin was a producer on the first 15 seasons on CBS’s Survivor and was a producer on Season 1 of NBC’s The Voice.
With the new division, Anonymous Content is looking to expand his scripted TV portfolio, which includes The Knick on Cinemax, the HBO series True Detective, the upcoming Cinemax drama Quarry, Schitt’s Creek, which was just renewed for a second season on the CBC ahead of its season one debut on the Canadian network and POP (formerly TVGN) stateside; and the newly picked up USA hacker drama series Mr. Robot. Anonymous Content also has a three-year, first-look production deal with Paramount Television. The first collaboration under the pact is a drama series inspired by the bestselling novel The Alienist by Caleb Carr.
New hires within the division will be announced in the coming weeks.
