Insurrection Media Taps Jordanna Fraiberg as Head of Development

Insurrection Media, the digital television studio formed last year by ex-Fox Broadcasting exec Kiliaen Van Rensselaer, has hired veteran executive and young-adult novelist Jordanna Fraiberg to head development for the company.

In the new role, Fraiberg will oversee all aspects of Insurrection’s growing production slate as well as its strategic partnerships with Skybound Entertainment, Abominable Pictures and HarperCollins.

Fraiberg has nearly two decades of experience in TV, film, and digital development. Most recently, she helped launch a new original digital content initiative at Amazon’s Audible division. Before that, she spent nine years at Village Roadshow Pictures Entertainment where as VP of production and development she oversaw projects such as “The Dukes of Hazzard,” “License to Wed,” “Nights in Rodanthe,” “The Invasion” and “The Reaping.”

In addition, Fraiberg is the author of two YA books, “Our Song” and “In Your Room,” both published by Razorbill/Penguin. She has also been a TV writer, serving as consulting producer and writing four episodes for the TV series “Duality” developed by Televisa USA.

“Jordanna is our dream creative executive, combining classic storytelling development skills and a passion for our innovative approach,” Van Rensselaer, Insurrection’s CEO, said in announcing her hire. “Her direct experience as a writer gives her the wisdom and empathy to guide and inspire the talent Insurrection is so fortunate to work with.”

L.A.-based Insurrection Media Insurrection deals include a multiyear, exclusive comedy pod deal with Jonathan Stern (“Wet Hot American Summer,” “Childrens Hospital”) founder of Abominable Pictures and senior entertainment executive and producer Keith Quinn. The studio also has a multiyear sci-fi production partnership with “The Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman and David Alpert of Skybound Entertainment, as well as a pact with HarperCollins under which key books in sci-fi, drama and comedy are optioned and developed into digital video and linear television series.

Insurrection’s first comedy series, “Drive Share,” created by and starring Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer, will premiere on Verizon-Hearst’s Seriously.TV comedy channel and on Go90 in the U.S. and multiple international networks and platforms later this year.
