Former MTV Executives Launch Production Company DiGa

New company already has projects in the works with Nick Cannon, Jill Martin and Jimmy Kimmel

Former MTV executives Tony DiSanto and Liz Gateley are leaving the "Jersey Shore" behind to start their own production company, DiGa.

DiGa will create and produce prime-time cable and network reality and scripted shows, feature films and digital content, the pair announced on Monday. 

Among the projects that DiGa is working on are a comedy Nick Cannon’s NCredible Entertainment starring female personality Amanda Diva; a fashion series with an interactive element from Jill Martin, author of “Fashion for Dummies” and the upcoming “I Have Nothing to Wear”; three series with Jackhole Industries, Jimmy Kimmel, Adam Carolla and Daniel Kellison’s production company.

"Liz and I are thrilled to partner and form DiGa, the next logical step in our career as we look to expand on the work we did together at MTV as producers and executives," DiSanto said in a statement.

The company will partner with Ben Silverman's Electus, and will be headquartered in New York City. DiGa will also maintain a production and editing center in Los Angeles.

At MTV, DiSanto and Gateley helped rejuvenate the music television network with reality programs such as "Teen Mom," "Jersey Shore" and "16 and Pregnant." The pair left the network in December 2010 to strike out on their own.
