Serwatka worked for nine years at Bravo, most recently as veep of current and cross-platform productions.  Prior to Bravo, Serwatka worked as a producer, development executive and talent executive for various networks including Trio, Comedy Central, HBO’s U.S. Comedy Arts Festival and HBO Downtown Productions.
