ITV Studios America Nabs First-Look Deal With Intellectual Artist Management

ITV Studios America, the U.S. arm of U.K. television producer and distributor ITV Studios, has secured a first-look development deal for scripted and unscripted television series with Intellectual Artist Management (IAM).

“IAM is a powerhouse in the talent and literary world and I’m excited to work with David Guillod, Patrick Hughes, Jeff Morrone and the great team of managers to identify intellectual property and characters that will jump from the printed page to make great television. This is another terrific step forward as we continue to expand both our scripted and non-scripted slates,” said Orly Adelson, president of ITV Studios America, in a statement.

Intellectual Artist Management is a management, media and content production company that aims to develop opportunities for its creative talent over multiple media platforms. IAM has several shows in production, including Amazon’s “Bosch” and Red Arrow Intl.’s “100 Code.”

Patrick Hughes, co-owner of IAM, said the company is in an expansion mode and ITV Studios complements its growth and ability to produce content.

“We see this relationship with ITV Studios America as a natural and smart fit in our aggressive growth of our literary and talent business, as well as an opportunity to continue to increase our global vision in the packaging of our source material into international and domestic television,” said David Guillod, CEO of Intellectual Artist Management, in a statement.

In addition to the deal, ITV Studios America and IAM have jointly hired Tony Sabistina as development executive to work on a large slate of projects for both companies.
