Reality Producer LMNO Revamps Exec Structure
A trio of executives are expanding their roles at LMNO Productions, the longtime reality producer whose current network shows include CBS’ I Get That A Lot, Discovery ID’s The Unusual Suspects and TLC’s The Little Couple. The company is restructuring as it expands its overseas reach following its deal in October with UK’s Cineflix to distribute LMNO’s 450-hour back catalogue as well as its new programming under an exclusive three-year deal. Ed Horwitz moves into the newly created role of EVP International Production & Distribution, where he will oversee all of LMNO’s expansive international distribution business and manage the company’s ongoing rights relationship with Cineflex. He will continue to oversee all of LMNO’s network, cable and syndicated programming. Lisa Bourgoujian becomes SVP Current Programming, another newly created role, in which she will oversee all of LMNO’s pilots, specials and series while continuing to serve as executive producer on selected projects. As part of the revamp, Lori Rothschild has been promoted to SVP Development and adds the title of head of Corporate Communications. “This restructure is in response to LMNO’s success in both the domestic and international marketplace”, said LMNO president and CEO Eric Schotz in announcing the deal. LMNO has produced more than 750 programs and 65 series for broadcast and cable networks.
