BMP is part of the Banijay group and counts Project Runway and Keeping Up with the Kardashian among its credits.
Bagshaw has been showrunner or exec producer on reality shows including Top Chef Masters and BMP’s Project Runway All Stars, which is produced in New York.
As senior VP, development and production at BMP, he will lead the new East Coast operation.
“The opening of a New York office, led by Rob Bagshaw, reflects the evolving media landscape and our company’s continued growth across platforms as well as a recognition of the increased opportunities to sell to East Coast-based buyers in cable, digital and branded entertainment,” said Gil Goldschein, President of BMP.
“Having worked alongside Rob on our New York-based production, Project Runway All Stars, these last four years, I have been so impressed with his creativity, leadership and can-do spirit,” added BMP chairman Jon Murray.
British producer Bagshaw started out working on in the UK including Big Breakfast and Castaway. He has worked for content companies including Mentorn and BBC Worldwide.
