Meredith Ditlow Joins Adam Shankman’s Offspring Entertainment

Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot’s Offspring Entertainment has made its first TV executive hire, tapping Meredith Ditlow as its vice president of television.

Ditlow, who was most recently director of development at Gale Anne Hurd’s Valhalla Entertainment, will be responsible for ramping up and overseeing Offspring’s development and production slate in drama and comedy for both broadcast and cable through its deal with Warner Bros. Television Group.

“We are thrilled to be bringing Meredith into Offspring,” said Gibgot and Shankman.

The hire comes at a choice time for Offspring. Shankman and Gibgot recently sold gay rights drama project “Open City” to HBO. They also sold projects to E!, Bravo and MTV through their overall with Warner Horizon. They are currently working on New Line’s “Mean Moms,” eyeing a fall start. The duo has worked on numerous projects together including all five “Step Up” films, “The Last Song,” “Hairspray” and “17 Again.”

Gibgot and Shankman are represented by UTA and Bloom Hergott. Ditlow is repped by UTA.
