eOne Bolsters TV Division

Entertainment One Television has expanded its alternative programming division with the appointment of David Shaye as vice president of Development, U.S. alternative programming. 

In his new role, Shaye will work closely with Tara Long, senior vice president of alternative programming for eOne as well as division executives to build on eOne Television’s existing catalog of unscripted series by discovering fresh talent and developing original series ideas. 

“David has a keen eye for engaging content and a deep background in working with talent who have thrived in the reality space, and we are delighted to have him join the team," says Long. 

Shaye joins eOne from Evolution Media, where he was vice president of development and co-executive producer on E!’s "Botched" and ABC Family’s "Beverly Hills Nannies." Before Evolution, Shaye worked at MTV overseeing shows with Jennifer Lopez, Ashton Kutcher, Hilary Duff, Three 6 Mafia and Pete Wentz. He also worked at Jennifer Lopez's Nuyorican Productions and Brett Ratner's Rat Entertainment.
