Big Fish Entertainment, the production company behind A&E’s Live PD, is bolstering its creative team with the appointment of Daniel Markell as senior VP of development.

Markell will lead the company’s content development for linear, digital and streaming platforms, in addition to identifying new brand and talent partnership opportunities, while managing the company’s development team. He will report to Chief Creative Officer Lucilla D’Agostino.

We’re very excited to welcome Daniel to the team whose instincts for incredibly sharp and envelope-pushing content will help us keep setting the bar higher, and explore new creative territory across all platforms.”
