Porter hired at RelativityREAL

Comedy Central vet tabbed as exec VP of development, series

RelativityREAL has hired Elizabeth Porter as exec VP of development and series.

Shifting from Comedy Central, where she was senior VP of special and talent development, Porter will oversee series and pilots in both the scripted and alternative genres. She will report to CEO Tom Forman.

“She is both incredibly experienced and truly well-liked,” said Forman. “That’s a surprisingly tricky combination.”

Among her jobs at Comedy Central, Porter worked on getting talent for the stand-up specials and roasts, which have been a longtime staple at the cabler.

Among the series produced by RelativityREAL are “American Bible Challenge” at GSN, which recently received a second-season renewal.
