Wheelhouse Entertainment Hires New President of Spoke Studios


Wheelhouse Entertainment has appointed senior TV executive and producer Pam Healey to be president of Spoke Studios.

Based in Los Angeles, Healey will lead all creative efforts and growth strategies for the production company. Among Spoke’s marquee projects are four Netflix series, including Hype House and the upcoming Goldin Auctions with executive producer Peyton Manning. It also has in its catalog multiple series for Hulu and More Power for History with Tim Allen.

Healey most recently served as general manager for nearly seven years at Warner Bros.’ Shed Media, and as executive VP for nine years at High Noon.

Brent Montgomery, CEO and founder of Wheelhouse, said: “We’re in a major moment of volatility and huge opportunity in the business, which is why Pam’s range across broadcast, cable, streaming and producing makes her a great fit for Spoke. Very much like the early days at Leftfield, we’re focusing on locking great talent and expanding creatively, even when a lot of the industry is bracing and battening down the hatches. This strategy goes to the heart of Wheelhouse and aligns perfectly with Pam.”

Healey added: “This has always been a hit-driven business, and job one is seeking out those gems that can break through. It’s definitely not for the faint of heart, and you have to be fearless and fortunate to have the support of great collaborators. I’m so impressed with what Brent and his team are building at Wheelhouse and am eager to dig into it all with everyone at Spoke.”

In other Wheelhouse news, Spoke Studios’ Will Nothacker is set to take on an expanded role as executive VP of programming for Wheelhouse Entertainment, running the in-house production services and production management arm of the company. For Spoke Studios, Nothacker will work hand-in-hand with Healey. He will also work directly with Wheelhouse Entertainment’s other label heads on their projects.
