El Rey Network Promotes Skip Chaisson to Chief Creative Officer

Skip Chaisson has been named chief creative officer of El Rey Network, the cable channel announced Tuesday. In his new role, Chaisson will oversee all creative and brand elements produced by the company for El Rey’s linear network as well as its digital and social-media feeds.

Through his company Skip Film, Chaisson worked on the 2013 launch of El Rey. He then joined the network full time in 2014 as senior vice president, creative and on-air promotion.

“Skip is supremely talented,” said Daniel Tibbets, El Rey president and general manager. “He has a long history of working on projects for the biggest Hollywood filmmakers, including Tony and Ridley Scott, Steven Spielberg, Oliver Stone, James Cameron, Jerry Bruckheimer and Robert Rodriguez. He also created El Rey’s on-air look and style, which is unlike any other network’s. His sensibilities embrace the brand tenets and I am so pleased that he will be shepherding El Rey’s creative direction into the future.”

Chaisson will continue to serve as an executive producer on “Lucha Underground,” El Rey’s lucha libre wrestling show. At Skip Film, he created main titles and trailers for television and film projects, including  “The Good Wife,” “Numbers,” “Without A Trace” and “The Taking of Pelham 123.”
