To help get a handle on its rapid growth, LMNO Prods. has tapped Ned Davis, a former producer on CBS’s “Murphy Brown,” as VP of corporate operations.
Producer of the CBS series “Kids Say the Darndest Things” and Fox’s “Guinness World Records: Primetime,” LMNO has grown in two years from a nine-person company to one with more than 200 employees.
Davis will be responsible for managing the company’s growth and expansion while also overseeing its newly created human resources department, implementing employee health benefits and investment options and managing all other aspects of LMNO’s day-to-day operations.
“It is Ned’s job to ensure that our transitions from ‘the little production company that could’ into ‘the production company that does’ is smooth and successful,” said Eric Schotz, CEO of LMNO.
Davis most recently served as a producer on “Murphy Brown,” directing an episode and garnering an Emmy nomination for producing another. Davis was also a producer on the Showtime series “Linc’s.”
Prior to that, Davis created, produced and directed “Fire Busters,” the first in a series of children’s videos. His other production and post-production experience includes stints on “Tim Conway’s Funny America,” “The Cavanaughs” and “Dynasty II/The Colbys.”
