Brandon Brito has joined Fox 21 as VP Scripted. Brito joins 20th Century Fox TV’s cable/reality unit from a recent tenure as a producer and Co-Head of Television 360, the television department and production arm of Management 360. At Fox 21, Brito will be charged with working with writers on the studio’s roster to develop new projects, both comedy and drama, for all the cable networks, as well as identifying fresh talent and ideas for series. “We’ve been looking for the right person for a long time,” said Fox 21 president Bert Salke. “This is a big step in our company’s evolution, with Homeland, Sons of Anarchy and now Brickleberry firing on all cylinders, five pilots ordered and dozens of projects in the pipeline. Since joining 360 in August of 2011, Brito has helped develop and sell over a dozen projects, including Royal at HBO, a half-hour comedy written by Nick Schenk (Gran Torino) and Peter Tolan (Rescue Me), and Showtime’s The Oath, a psychological-thriller from Mark Heyman (Black Swan). Before joining 360, Brito was VP of Development at Tribeca Prods., where he oversaw feature film and television development for partners Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal.
