Grasso will oversee all development for the company, which at present produces CBS’ “Code Black” and is adapting the novel “Dietland,” about the beauty industry and dieting obsessions. Noxon is the prolific showrunner known for such hits as Lifetime’s “Unreal” and Bravo’s “The Girlfriends Guide to Divorce,” among other shows.
“As our priority development slate with Skydance Television rapidly expands, I am thrilled to have found in Maria a new creative partner to help shepherd Tiny Pyro’s efforts in bringing a diverse slate of high-quality series to the screen,” Noxon said.
Grasso has worked in development at Lifetime, The WB, Warner Bros and Universal TV where she has helped shepherd such series as “Supernatural,” “Army Wives,” “One Tree Hill” and “Everwood.” Her own One-Two Punch Productions has overseen projects at HBO, AMC and Amazon, and it executive produced MTV’s “Finding Carter.”
“Joining this team is an incredibly exciting next step for me and I cannot wait to get started,” said Grasso.
Added Skydance TV president Marcy Ross: “Maria is an extremely accomplished creative executive whose depth and breadth of experience will serve as a strong extension to Skydance Television’s already highly productive working relationship with Marti and the Tiny Pyro team.”
