"With Andie's passion for the genre and her keen creative instincts, she's a tremendous addition to our programming team and to the future growth of the Syfy brand," said Olander.

Prior to AMC pulling the plug on future reality efforts, Beckerman served as director of development for unscripted originals. She worked on the network's bigger alternative projects such as Talking Dead, Comic Book Men and Game of Arms.

At Syfy, Beckerman will help build out the network's nonscripted offerings in a bid to build on current hit Face Off. She will be based out of the network's Los Angeles office.
