Blumhouse Television Bolsters Programming Team


Blumhouse Television has appointed Eben Davidson as the executive VP of scripted programming and Mary Lisio as the executive VP of alternative and non-scripted.

Before joining Blumhouse Television, Davidson worked at Paramount, where he served as the senior VP of development for the TV division. Lisio recently took on the role of executive VP alternative and non-scripted programming and has already seen success at Blumhouse Television with This is Home. Chris Dickie, who joined the company in mid-2017 as VP of development, works across scripted, non-scripted and documentary features.

“Eben and Mary are an amazing combination,” said Marci Wiseman, co-president of Blumhouse Television. “Between them, they enjoy relationships with the best established and up-and-coming creators across scripted and unscripted programming. We are so fortunate to have them and Chris, who has already played an integral role in helping to develop our slate.”

“With so many projects already in motion, including The Purge series with USA/SYFY, and most recently the unscripted series we just announced with AMC’s SundanceTV, having a terrific team ensures our ability to execute at the highest level,” added Jeremy Gold, co-president of Blumhouse Television. “2018 is going to be a transformational year for us.”
