'My Life on the D List' EP Inks Development Deal With Nancy Glass Productions (Exclusive)
Nancy Glass Productions has signed Danny Salles and his Semi-Cool Productions shingle to a two-year pact.
Under the exclusive deal, Salles will partner, develop and showrun projects as well as oversee the Los Angeles office for Glass' Philadelphia-based company.
"Danny is uniquely skilled at developing formats and breakthrough stories and getting the best out of everyone he works with, especially talent," Glass said. "And he's funny, which is more important to me than pasta."
Glass brought Salles in to help shepherd her Animal Planet series Tanked, which was renewed for a second season in September.
In addition to the Animal Planet entry, Salles has executive produced VH1's I Want to Work for Diddy, NBC's I Want to be a Hilton as well as WE TV's Joan and Melissa and last season of the network's Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, which earned him an Emmy nomination.
He also has a number of directing credits, having overseen Joe Schmo at Spike and My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiancé for Fox.
Salles is repped by WME. David Fox and Carolyn Conrad brokered the deal for Myman Greenspan Fineman.
