US-based distributor GRB Entertainment has agreed a first-look deal with the veteran unscripted producer behind Friend Zone.
Damon Epps will develop and produce a range of formats and character-driven docuseries with GRB under his Goodtimes USA banner.
Epps will work on “loud projects” with the distribution company’s development team, which includes VP of premium content Megan Reeves, VP of digital Chris Powers and VP of branded partnerships Vanessa McCullers. The latter two joined the company last month.
Epps, who co-created MTV’s Friend Zone with Sally Ann Salsano, has also worked on shows including America’s Got Talent for NBC, Shot at Love with Tila Tequila for MTV and Blue Collar Millionaire for CNBC.
“We are thrilled to have Damon broaden GRB’s growing creative landscape with his energy and track record in the unscripted genre,” said Marielle Zuccarelli, GRB Entertainment’s chief operating officer.
