They will join eOne’s alternative programming division, announced Tara Long, eOne Television’s senior VP of U.S. alternative programming, on Tuesday.
“We have strategically built out eOne Television’s Alternative programming business in a way that supports our partners and serves as a creative home for top producers to innovate, and we are proud to forge this partnership with Creature Films,” said Long. “We look forward to joining forces with Mark and Kevin to develop and produce a slate of new, original and inspired projects.”
