With “Catfish: The TV Show” debuting to strong numbers on MTV this last week, the company behind the series is expanding its television efforts.
RelativityReal, the TV unit of Ryan Kavanaugh’s Relativity Media, is making two new overall production and development deals, including one with the company of teen producer Oliver Bogner.
RelativityReal Chief Executive Tom Forman is expected to announce Thursday the division has signed pacts with Bogner Entertainment as well as This Is Just a Test Prods.
Bogner attained the distinction of being the only high-schooler with a project set up at E! when in 2010, as a 16-year-old, he sold a show called “Party Prince 90210." Along with partner (and father) Jonathan Bogner, his Bogner Entertainment has since executive produced TLC’s “Down South Dance,” about the form of twinkle-toeing known as clogging, as well as the Animal Planet show “Addicts and Animals,” about the use of some of men’s best friends as part of the rehab process.
