MTV's president of programming Tony DiSanto and senior VP of series development Liz Gateley are both leaving the US cablenet, according to numerous stateside reports, to set up a new indie.
The as-yet unnamed new company will be backed by Ben Silverman's Electus - which will own a stake in the firm - and has already landed several commissions from nets including MTV.
Electus, which Silverman set up last year with investment from Barry Diller's IAC, will have distribution rights to all content created by the prodco and will aid with marketing and ad partnerships.
US trades are suggesting that David Janollari, MTV's exec VP of scripted development, will likely be promoted as a result of the departures, although the exact role is unclear and MTV has yet to comment on the reports.
DiSanto has been with MTV for nearly 20 years, prior to which he was president of The WB network and a co-founder of Six Feet Under producer Greenblatt Janollari Studios.
