Truly Original Signs Showrunner Lenid Rolov to Overall Deal


Lenid Rolov, an Emmy-winning executive producer and showrunner, has landed an overall deal with Truly Original, a subsidiary of Endemol Shine North America.

At Truly Original, Rolov will work alongside Glenda Hersh and Steven Weinstock—the company’s Emmy-winning co-presidents and co-CEOs—to develop and produce unscripted content in various genres and formats. Rolov previously collaborated with Truly Original on Season 25: Oprah Behind the Scenes for OWN and Bravo’s Princesses of Long Island.

Rolov began his career on A&E’s Growing up Gotti. He has since been behind such unscripted hits as The Real Housewives of New Jersey, The Real Housewives of New York City, The Hills and Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List.

Hersh and Weinstock said: “We’ve had the privilege of working with Lenid on past projects and have always admired his seemingly limitless capabilities in helming unscripted series. We’re seizing this opportunity to bring him into the Truly Original fold and are looking forward to working with him closely on content that showcases great stories, and unique new personalities and subcultures.”

Rolov added: “Steven and Glenda share my passion for championing both emerging and established talent through compelling storytelling and innovative formats. I look forward to joining forces with them and the Truly Original team to develop content that will excite both buyers and viewers alike.”
