Dorsey Pictures has hired veteran unscripted producer Sean Hogan as vice president of current programming.
Hogan will join the team in April 2019 and oversee Dorsey’s lifestyle programming including Maine Cabin Masters and Building Alaska, as well as the company’s expanding crime slate, which includes Dog’s Most Wanted for WGN.
He will report to Chris Dorsey, CEO of Dorsey Pictures, a Red Arrow Studios company.
Having worked extensively with 495 Productions and Big Fish Entertainment, Hogan’s credits include MTV’s Jersey Shore and VH1’s Black Ink Crew, Dating Naked, and Tool Academy.
He also assisted in the launch of successful first seasons shows, like MTV’s Jersey Shore Family Vacation, Floribama Shore, Snooki and Jwoww, Disaster Date, SPIKE TV’s Tattoo Nightmares, RepoGames, and CMT’s Party Down South.
Hogan is currently producing a new primetime FOX series.
Dorsey said: “Hogan has a reputation for balancing character-driven shows with heart and comedy. He creates an environment of trust on set, leads by example, exemplifies hard work, and believes the best producing comes from capturing a character’s real and honest feelings, all of which are core values to Dorsey Pictures.”
