In addition, North South is launching a Gotham-based comedy division. Producers Ari Fishman and Thom Hinkle have been charged with developing unscripted laffers, reporting to North South exec producer Charlie DeBevoise.

Hinkle most recently served as producer on North South’s “In a Fix,” which recently wrapped its run after 100 episodes on TLC. Fishman spent the past six years working on “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart,” most recently as a producer on the “Indecision 2004” DVD.
