NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Scott Brothers Entertainment (SBE) announced today plans to expand its media division with the appointment of executive producer Katie Ruttan Daigle to the position of Vice President of Development and Production in the company's Factual Entertainment division. Ruttan Daigle will join SBE's founders and executive producers, Drew Scott, Jonathan Scott, and J.D. Scott in overseeing SBE's major growth plans into the North American market.
"Jonathan, JD and I continually strive to create innovative and engaging content for viewers in North America and worldwide," said Drew Scott, executive producer and founder of SBE. "Katie has dedicated over 20 years to creating quality production and her know-how will be invaluable as we continue to grow Scott Brothers Entertainment."
With experience spanning nearly two decades in the television industry, Ruttan Daigle has held leadership roles in a wide range of national and international television programs for networks such as HBO, A&E, HGTV USA & Canada, Channel 4, W Network, and the CBC.
SBE's immediate objective will be to create content across all platforms, sharpening their focus on factual and factual entertainment programming slates and striving to engage audiences through multi-media experiences. This approach has SBE well poised to become a major player in the evolution of television and is in line with the company's vision of becoming one of the leading production companies in North America.
No stranger to the industry, the Scott Brothers have been producing, directing and writing for film and television for the past 10 years. More recently, Drew and Jonathan Scott have maintained their own production endeavours while also helming HGTV's top-rated series Property Brothers, Buying & Selling and the newly launched and highly-anticipated, Brother vs. Brother. Since the premiere of Property Brothers in 2010 – the pilot produced by Ruttan Daigle – the Scott Brothers have been committed to working with the series' producers Cineflix Media on building the Property Brothers' brand, and with the third season of Property Brothers launching this fall on HGTV, fans of the dynamic duo can expect to see Drew and Jonathan Scott making real estate dreams come true for many seasons to come.
"We have enjoyed a great relationship with Cineflix from the very start, which has helped to create tremendous momentum surrounding the Property Brothers brand; and we look forward to more collaborative projects in the future," says Jonathan Scott, executive producer and founder of SBE.
Always innovative in their approach to celebrating production, in 2011, SBE founded one of North America's most coveted annual media industry gatherings, The Producers Ball, a fundraising event held in Toronto during the Toronto International Film Festival. The Producers Ball shines a light on North American producers of film, television and multimedia. Through initiatives like this, the Scott Brothers are joined by their colleagues to celebrate their industry's successes, and to continue working towards developing the ideas and building the partnerships that collectively make up one of North America's most lucrative industries. The 2013 Producers Ball will benefit World Vision and is expected to once again bring together film and television's brightest stars.
