Leftfield Entertainment, Nick Rigg Partner for Joint Reality Venture

Rigg formerly headed unscripted shingle Leopard Films USA

Reality producer Nick Rigg has teamed with Leftfield Entertainment on joint venture Loud TV.

Loud TV, an unscripted shingle under recently-established parent company Leftfield Entertainment, aims to create unscripted content across TV and digital platforms.

Loud is based in Gotham, with Julian Locke serving as exec veep and Laureen Deen as senior vice prez of lifestyle development. Pair of execs worked with Rigg previously at Leopard Films USA, where Rigg was prez from 2005 to 2013 and handled shows including “House Hunters International.”

“As a producer and executive for 15 years, it’s been my goal to create a new company that will produce original content across a range of genres, and to assemble a team of nimble, dedicated and highly talented people with the experience and guts to execute their creative visions,” said Rigg. “To form Loud TV with [Leftfield CEO] Brent Montgomery, a friend and colleague who has built a powerhouse operation in Leftfield Entertainment, is truly the best of both worlds.”

Montgomery added: “We are excited to follow our recent acquisition of Sirens Media with the establishment of Loud TV, and know that Nick Rigg is the best possible person to lead the charge.”

In March, Montgomery and reality shingle Leftfield Pictures established parent company Leftfield Entertainment and acquired Sirens Media. Leftfield Pictures, Sirens and Loud TV all reside within the Leftfield Entertainment wheelhouse.
