Ryan Seacrest Productions Ramps up Executive Staffing – Reality T.V. Takeover?

Ryan Seacrest Productions has added a “small army” of t.v. execs to its staff as part of a planned expansion with the goal of expanding their lineup of reality and scripted programs across all three major broadcast networks.

The American Idol host already has a strong foothold on the reality t.v. landscape with his company’s  Kardashians franchise, Married to Jonas for E!, Shahs of Sunset for Bravo, The Nanny Diaries for ABC Family and the game show Draw Something in development at CBS, but an “infusion of capital” from radio big shot Clear Channel could have even more Seacrest helmed reality t.v. coming to a network near you.
