AMC’s current slate of unscripted programming includes “The Walking Dead” aftershow “Talking Dead,” as well as “Comic Book Men,” “Small Town Security” and the upcoming arm-wrestling series “Game of Arms,” which premieres in February.
Bresaz, who as vice president of original programming at Sundance oversaw the series “Push Girls,” will serve under AMC’s senior vice president of unscripted programming, Eliot Goldberg.
Prior to joining Sundance, Bresaz worked at TV Land, Spike TV and ABC Daytime, the latter of which found him serving as a production executive on “One Life to Live” and “All My Children.”
“Marco is a talented executive with a great creative eye and a record of developing distinctive original content across a variety of networks,” Goldberg said. “He is a terrific addition to our growing unscripted team at AMC and will play a major role in driving our efforts to find and develop quality unscripted programming that connects with viewers and lives comfortably alongside our award-winning and critically-acclaimed scripted series and some of the most celebrated films ever made.”
