Electus’s Big Breakfast Strengthens Development Team


The Electus-owned production studio Big Breakfast has promoted producer, director and writer Luke Kelly-Clyne to the post of head of development.

As head of development, Kelly-Clyne now oversees the company’s scripted and unscripted projects across networks and platforms such as IFC, Freeform, Facebook, Comedy Central, Disney Channel, truTV and others. He joined Big Breakfast in January 2017 as director of development and executive producer. He has helped the production company double its original programming roster.

Kelly-Clyne’s credits include I Want My Phone Back and Hot Date for Pop. Prior to Big Breakfast, Kelly-Clyne was a writer, director and producer at CollegeHumor, with a remit that included both branded and original content.

Electus’s COO, Drew Buckley, commented, “Luke has been integral in expanding and diversifying Big Breakfast’s slate—everything from scripted comedies and sketch series to new game-show formats and other unscripted programming—while forging partnerships with respected names in comedy and other genres. Luke’s creative vision and energy is a real asset to Big Breakfast as the studio leans into producing premium comedic content for a range of buyers, while leveraging access to the industry’s top talent through the Electus and Artists First family.”
