Reelz taps E! producer

Robert Ell named head of talent relations

ReelzChannel has recruited E! Entertainment TV’s Robert Ell to head up the cabler’s talent relations.

Ell will handle booking for ReelzChannel programs such as the movie-news series “Dailies,” the Leonard Maltin skein “Secret’s Out,” the channel’s specials and its online content.

Reelz is putting Ell in charge of bringing more Hollywood awareness to the movie-centric information channel and attracting celebs to participate.

Ell spent more than 10 years at E!, producing celebrity bookings for “E! News,” “The Daily 10” and its “E! Live From the Red Carpet” specs. Ell’s credits also include serving as a senior producer at AOL Entertainment, producing original broadband content.

“Television movie news has been hijacked by celebrity chaos,” Ell said. “I’ve found the perfect work environment for my passion, which is movies.”

As director of talent relations, Ell will report to Paul Haddad, VP of programming.
