Evolution Media, producer of popular reality programs “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” and “Botched,” has announced a significant expansion of its creative team.
Exec vice president of programming and development Alex Baskin’s role has now been expanded and he will join chief executive officer Douglas Ross and chief financial officer Gregory B. Stewart as a partner at the company. Baskin will continue to oversee Evolution’s development team and provide creative oversight for all Evolution productions.
Evolution has also announced that Sara Hansemann has joined as vice president of development, where she will be tasked with generating new character driven docuseries and creating original formats for U.S. broadcast and cable networks. And Robert Carroll has been named vice president of current programming. He will manage a slate that includes “Vanderpump Rules” and “The Real Housewives of Orange County.” Both Hansemann and Carroll will report directly to Baskin.
“Alex has been an integral part of Evolution’s success and has made a name for himself as a well-respected executive, first-rate producer and innovative content creator and generator,” said Ross. “Both Sara and Robert have strong creative visions, unique voices and successful track records of developing and producing fresh programming.”
Evolution continues to have a productive 2015. It will celebrate the tenth anniversary of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” on June 9 and has a production slate that includes projects with Nick Cannon and Gigi Levangie.
