Left Hook Media, the production entity founded by the duo behind VH1 reality shows Flavor of Love and Rock of Love, has solidified its partnership with Endemol Shine North America. Scott Teti and Matt Odgers’ Left Hook has signed overall producing deals with the company and its production arm, True Entertainment.
Left Hook and Endemol Shine NA already are teaming on the upcoming MTV series Almost Impossible Game Show and with True on Bravo’s Summer House. Teti and Odgers produced their VH1 shows while at Endemol Shine-owned 51 Minds Entertainment — which was co-founded by Cris Abrego, who now is co-CEO of Endemol Shine NA with Charlie Corwin.
“I’m personally thrilled to have both Scott and Matt back working with me and with our extended team here at Endemol Shine,” Abrego said. “They are two of the most creative, hard-working guys in this business, and they’ve produced nearly every type of unscripted show imaginable. And they are already off and running with several series coming down the pike.”
Added Steven Weinstock and Glenda Hersh, Co-Presidents and Co-CEOs of True Entertainment: “Scott and Matt have a great history producing edgy and diverse shows that tap into pop culture in a fun and unique way. We’re excited to work with them on Summer House and other series that push the envelope across a range of genres.”
