Pilgrim Ties Up with Unscripted Producers Michael Canter & Jeff Krask


Pilgrim Media Group, a Lionsgate company, has inked a production and development deal with Michael Canter and Jeff Krask, executive producers behind iconic game shows such as Family Feud, The Newlywed Game and Deal or No Deal.

Canter and Krask will work closely with Johnny Gould, Pilgrim’s chief creative officer, and Nicole Silveira, VP and head of development, to develop and produce an array of projects for broadcast, cable and digital platforms, from new game-show and competition formats to other unscripted content. The first two series to come from the deal are already set up at a broadcast network.

Craig Piligian, Pilgrim Media Group’s founder and CEO, said: “Michael and Jeff deliver tremendous expertise in game show development and a track record of hits across a range of genres. We’re excited to unite our creative efforts and look forward to collaborating on numerous projects in the game and competition space, and beyond.”
