NEW YORK, NY, July 9, 2019 – AMC Networks has promoted two key executives in its non-fiction and alternative programming group, which is responsible for developing and overseeing unscripted content for AMC, BBC America and SundanceTV. Marco Bresaz, who joined the company in 2010, has been promoted to senior vice president of non-fiction and alternative programming. Kelly Nash, who joined in 2015, has been promoted to vice president of non-fiction and alternative programming.
The non-fiction group has developed and launched an expanding slate of non-fiction programming on AMC and SundanceTV including hit series “Talking Dead,” “Eli Roth’s History of Horror,” “Ride with Norman Reedus” and “James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction,” as well as critically-acclaimed true crime docuseries “Jonestown: Terror in the Jungle,” “Cold Blooded: The Clutter Family Murders” and the forthcoming “The Preppy Murder: Death in Central Park.”
“Marco and Kelly have proven themselves to be two of the best creative executives in our business and have played an integral role in the evolution of non-fiction programming on our networks,” said Eliot Goldberg, the company’s executive vice president of nonfiction and alternative programming. “Our non-fiction series have proven not only to be excellent complements to our scripted programming, but critical and ratings successes in their own right. Marco and Kelly have been instrumental in that growth and success and we’re thrilled to have them continue to build our non-fiction lineup across all three networks.”
Bresaz joined the company in 2010 as vice president of original programming and development for SundanceTV, and in 2013, moved over to AMC to join the network’s non-fiction and alternative programming team. His series include “Ride With Norman Reedus,” “Making Of The Mob: NY and Chicago,” “The American West,” “Comic Book Men,” “Game Of Arms” and the upcoming “Hip Hop: The Songs That Shook America.” Bresaz added SundanceTV to his purview in 2015 where he has overseen “Cold Blooded: The Clutter Family Murders,” and “The Preppy Murder: Death In Central Park.” Bresaz also added non-fiction programming for BBC America in 2018. Previously, he was a vice president at TV Land, where he worked on hit shows “Hot in Cleveland,” “She’s Got the Look” and “High School Reunion.” He has also worked at TNN, Spike TV, Nick at Nite and was a production executive at ABC Daytime.
Nash, who joined AMC Networks in 2015 as director of non-fiction and alternative programming, has overseen “AMC Visionaries,” the documentary series that explores different pop culture genres that are of particular interest to fans of AMC’s scripted programming. Seasons have included “James Cameron’s Secret History Of Science Fiction,” “Robert Kirkman’s Secret History of Comics” and “Eli Roth’s History of Horror.” Nash also helped shepherd late night talk shows “Unapologetic with Aisha Tyler” and “Geeking Out,” as well as true crime docuseries “Ministry Of Evil: The Twisted Cult Of Tony Alamo” and “No One Saw A Thing” for SundanceTV.
