Casey Patterson, senior VP of talent development and casting for Spike TV, has been named senior VP, event production and talent development for Spike TV and co-owned TV Land.

It is a newly created post, with Patterson asked to cultivate relationships with major studios to pitch network tie-ins, events and other opportunites for actors promoting new films and other projects.

Before joining Spike TV (then TNN) in 2000, Patterson was director of talent development at VH1.
