TV Eh B Cs podcast 59 — Crashing into Brent Haynes

Brent Haynes continues to foolishly pursue a career in television. He currently serves as president & executive producer of Picture Arcade where he created the CBC series Crash Gallery.

Season 2 of Crash Gallery returns Sunday, Feb. 5, at 9:30 p.m. on CBC.

Brent made the leap to producing after spending 19 years as a broadcaster. Previously, he was senior vice-president of Comedy & Animation at MTV in New York for five years where he managed a full development slate and oversaw production for close to 20 series including World of Jenks, Nikki & Sara Live and Silent Library. Brent’s MTV portfolio included scripted comedy, animation, unscripted and documentary.

Before making the move to New York, Brent spent 11 years with The Comedy Network in Canada where he helped launch the channel before ultimately becoming vice-president of programming in charge of the development, acquisition and scheduling teams. He was responsible for developing the smash hit Corner Gas and served as an executive on the show for five seasons.
