Creative content company Alkemy X has promoted Brittany George to director, TV and digital content,
For nearly two years, George has worked alongside Andy Singer, EVP of TV and digital programming, to grow the company’s original content division, while developing and producing shows in partnership with Discovery, Travel Channel, Fuse, and MTV.
“In the short time that she has been with Alkemy X, Brittany has done a stellar job increasing our development pipeline and marketplace presence, while consistently identifying potential on-air talent and ideas we can take to market,” says Singer. “This is a well-deserved promotion, and a win-win for Alkemy X and our valued network partners, who can all attest to the passion and drive Brittany brings to making great shows come to life. On behalf of the Alkemy X family, I congratulate her and look forward to greater things to come.”
George, who has pitched content for global brands at Alkemy X, as well as developed content leveraging the company’s award-winning VFX department, will play a pivotal role in expanding the company’s footprint in both content areas. In support of this objective, George is tasked with spearheading strategic co-production partnerships with leading content creators in the industry.
Most recently, in her previous position as manager of TV and digital content at Alkemy X’s New York office, George was instrumental in the development of The 212, an upcoming docuseries from Fuse Media that Alkemy X is currently producing. It follows six breakout millennials on the pulse of the New York City music, fashion and art scenes, catching the eyes of some of music’s biggest stars, and will premiere in October.
Past and notable Alkemy X unscripted TV projects include Food Network’s Restaurant Impossible and Food Feuds, and Velocity’s Unique Rides.
Singer predicts that truly multi-platform content will play a bigger role in the future of entertainment and Alkemy X, currently repped by APA Agency, is positioned as an end-to-end strategic development and production partner.
“As today’s brands and entertainment networks look to conceive and produce content for the growing segment of digitally native audiences, we are excited about the creative talent and resources we have in place to bring that content to life,” says Singer. “Our recent work with multi-platform innovators like Fuse (for The 212) is a testament to this.”
Alkemy X’s VFX department is currently working on the upcoming season of AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead, and recent work also includes projects with HBO’s High Maintenance, NBC’s Blindspot, The CW’s Frequency, Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Starz’s Power and Sweetbitter.
The company has also made waves in the award circuit, with with two Bronze Telly Awards wins for its work for Xfinity/Comcast, as well as wins at the Philadelphia Ad Club Awards and the ADCP Louix Awards. Alkemy X is also a current finalist for three Cablefax nominations, as well as a 2018 PromaxBDA North America Awards Finalist for its recent SYFY rebrand campaign.
