Studio Lambert has signed a development deal with Izzie Pick Ibarra, the showrunner and executive producer of The Masked Singer, the top-rated show on US broadcast television this year.
15 years ago, Pick Ibarra launched and show-ran Dancing With The Stars and has since created and overseen numerous successful unscripted shows. She has served as a development consultant and producer for NBCUniversal and UTV, as an EVP for Ryan Seacrest Productions, and as an SVP for BBC Worldwide.
“Izzie is a huge talent in our industry and her enormous success this year with The Masked Singer confirms she knows how to turn a good idea into a mega hit,” says Studio Lambert CEO, Stephen Lambert. “We’re delighted she has agreed to develop and produce her new ideas with us and to help sell and oversee some of our ideas as well. Jack Burgess, who runs our LA office, Tim Harcourt, our creative director, and I are all hugely looking forward to working with her on making some amazing television.”
Izzie Pick Ibarra said: “I have so many ideas I’m passionate about, which is why I’m so excited to have found a brilliant place to grow my ideas into hit shows. I think Jack, Tim and Stephen are at the top of their game and having great success making smart innovative content and I know this will be an exciting partnership.”
Studio Lambert is currently producing reality series The Circle, which will be released on Netflix early next year, as well as new game show The Hustler for ABC with Craig Ferguson, and the tenth season of the Emmy-winning Undercover Boss for CBS.
