EXCLUSIVE: Veteran reality producer Sean Travis has inked a pod deal with Asylum Entertainment. Under the pact, he will produce his own shows. Travis’ unscripted credits include MTV’s The Real World, ABC’s The Mole and Celebrity Mole, WB’s High School Reunion, Spike TV’s The Joe Schmo Show and Fox’s Princes Of Malibu and The Rebel Billionaire. He also was executive producer for MTV’s The Hills and The City, and currently is EP on that network’s Wait ‘Til Next Year via his 2Lights Entertainment. He is repped by WME and Greenberg Traurig. It’s the latest addition for Asylum, producers behind The Kennedys miniseries as well as reality shows like ReelzChannel’s Beverly Hills Pawn and the ESPN docu series 30 For 30. As part of its expanding unscripted efforts, Asylum last month inked an output deal with Kennedys partner ReelzChannel with plans to produce 50 hours of unscripted programming for the network in 2014. That move came hortly after hiring reality TV veteran Stephanie Lydecker joined to oversee unscripted development as well as develop for the company’s scripted business. On the scripted side, Asylum just named Joan Harrison SVP Scripted Programming & Development to oversee miniseries and limited series for the company; she had most recently been at Gersh, where she repped showrunners and filmmakers and packaged longform and unscripted series.
