Long most recently served as programming chief at Audience Network, which he ran for 18 years and has a resume of scripted comedy, drama, non-scripted, music, sports, and documentary programming, including “Mr. Mercedes,” “Kingdom, ” You Me Her,” “Religion of Sports,” “Loudermilk,” “Hit The Road,” and the recently premiered “Condor.”

“We are thrilled to be partnering with eOne who are true leaders in this space and are crafting content for global audiences. We’re looking forward to continuing to grow Cedar Park and are excited to do that with Mark and Pete, who are truly the best in the business,” stated Ayer and Long.

Cedar Park and Ayer are represented by CAA.

eOne’s upcoming television slate includes “Sharp Objects,” debuting on HBO July 8, and “The Rookie,” coming to ABC for the 2018-19 television season.
