 Former NBC exec-turned-reality producer Joe Livecchi has hooked up with ITV Studios New York, signing a production and development deal with the company behind shows such as "Steven Seagal: Lawman."

The multiyear agreement will have Livecchi creating, developing and producing unscripted concepts for the company. He’ll be based in New York and will report to Patrice Andrews, ITV Studios’ executive VP of development, production and operations.

Andrews called Livecchi "a highly-respected and accomplished producer with a breadth of experience in development and production."

Livecchi was most recently executive producer of TLC’s "What Not to Wear" for BBC Worldwide. Before that, he spent five years at Endemol USA, where he had an overall deal.
