Stephanie Angelides was previously VP of development at Discovery Channel, a position she held for just under a year.

Prior to joining Riot Creative, Angelides was senior VP of development for All3Media-ownded Optomen, overseeing all North American development in scripted and unscripted entertainment. The role also spanned the joint venture Optomen, shared with Gordon Ramsey’s One Potato Two Potato.

“I believe this is a time of opportunity in this industry and to be a part of a shop that is nimble and produces content across multiple platforms is thrilling for a creative,” said Angelides.

“We already have a number of projects in development that will expands Engel’s presence across cable and OTT platforms.”

“Stephanie is brimming with creative ideas, and we know that our broadcast partners will enjoy working with her to develop successful series,” said Steven Engel, president at Engel Entertainment. “She has produced programming for Fox, ID, Discovery and NatGeo Wild, among others. Her rich and varied experience will be a tremendous asset to our company.”
