Ell will handle booking for ReelzChannel programs such as the movie-news series “Dailies,” the Leonard Maltin skein “Secret’s Out,” the channel’s specials and its online content.

Reelz is putting Ell in charge of bringing more Hollywood awareness to the movie-centric information channel and attracting celebs to participate.
