Under the deal, Saffi will showrun, develop and produce unscripted series with a focus on paranormal and mystery programming, including two projects for Travel Channel that are yet to be announced. He will be based at Painless’s east coast office.

With nearly two decades of TV experience, Saffi began his career as a cinematographer, working with brands like Calvin Klein and Volvo. He then went on to serve as director of photography on series such as Ghost Adventures (Travel Channel), Moonshiners (Discovery) and Reinventing the Meal (Cooking Channel).

Most recently, he served as showrunner on Paranormal Lockdown (Destination America/TLC), My Horror Story (Travel Channel) and The Holzer Files (Travel Channel).

“Rob has consistently impressed me with his narrative approach – he has that rare ability to integrate compelling storytelling with a uniquely haunting cinematic style,” said CEO Jim Casey.

“We’re thrilled to add him to our growing team of in-house creative talent and to turn another producer collaboration into a full-fledged partnership.”
