‘Odd Mom Out’ Producer Left/Right Expands Development Team

Left/Right, the production company behind scripted and unscripted programming that includes Bravo’s “Odd Mom Out” and Donny Deutsch’s upcoming USA comedy “Donny!,” has announced it has hired a new scripted executive and has extended the collaboration with a key producer/director on its creative team.

Olivia Wingate joins Left/Right as senior v.p. of scripted development. She will be responsible for developing and overseeing new scripted projects, with an emphasis on single-camera comedies. Wingate, who comes from Avalon Management, will report to Left/Right company co-presidents Ken Druckerman and Banks Tarver.

The news comes as Michael LaHaie extends his overall deal with Left/Right after serving as a key member of the creative team for the last four years on projects including both “Odd Mom Out,” and “Donny!,” and also AMC’s “Small Town Security.” LaHaie will continue to develop, produce, and direct both scripted and unscripted projects for the company.

“These are exciting times for Left/Right, and we are thrilled to be working with Olivia and Mike as we continue our push into scripted programming,” says Tarver.

Druckerman elaborated, adding that “Olivia’s stellar reputation and her interest in developing and pitching new projects, along with Mike’s unique ability to bring great stories to life, fit perfectly with our presentation-driven approach on scripted projects.”

Left/Right’s credits also include the Emmy-winning adaptation of the “This American Life” radio show for Showtime and VH1’s “Mob Wives.” It is part of international production and distribution company Red Arrow Entertainment Group.
