The Endemol Shine North America subsidiary has produced unscripted shows including “Ace of Cakes,” “Toddlers & Tiaras,” “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” and “Flipping Out.”
“For 15 years, Tom Rogan has been my trusted partner and collaborator,” said Lexton in an official release. “We have been trailblazers in the industry and will continue that with new programming and new ideas for the changing television landscape. The team we built together will remain, which is in keeping with the Authentic spirit of rewarding success and promoting from within. The resources that are available to us now through the new Endemol Shine are vast, and we are already taking advantage of opportunities in formats, social media, marketing partnerships and research.”
Authentic Entertainment was acquired by Endemol in 2010. It is in production on “Cakemasters” for Food Network, “Knife Fight” for Esquire and series for FYI, History channel and Discovery.
