Entertainment One (eOne) has hired MTV development executive Jeff Hevert to drive its expanding efforts in reality programming.

The multinational studio today named Hevert as VP of current programming and development for alternative programming in the US for its eOne Reality division.

Hevert was previously a development exec for MTV, working in reality TV on the US music channel’s West Coast team. He will be based at eOne's office in Los Angeles and report to both John Morayniss, CEO of the TV division, and senior VP for US alternative programming Tara Long.

“We’re focused on expanding our alternative programming division and… I’m confident that Jeff will be a great asset to the team,” said Long.

eOne’s current reality slate includes Perfect Storms: Disasters that Changed the World, Mega Builders and Dangerous Persuasions. Its television arm has recently increased in output and recently turned out new seasons of series including The Walking Dead and Rookie Blue.

Hevert’s credits at MTV include the upcoming doc series BuckWild. A previous posting at Stone & Company Entertainment in LA included work on the Bravo series NYC Prep and the kids’ game show BrainSurge for Nickelodeon.
