About Your Host

With fifteen years of experience developing and producing scripted and unscripted series for broadcast, cable, and digital platforms, Allegra Newman is driven to create compelling characters and stories across comedies, dramas, and docu-series. She oversaw development of low-budget female-driven thrillers and romantic comedies for MarVista Entertainment, an independent film studio based in Los Angeles with partnerships in Toronto and Latin America. Prior to this, she was Director of Development for Nickelodeon's live-action department, where two of the pilots she helped manage - KNIGHT SQUAD and COUSINS FOR LIFE - were both picked up to series. Before jumping into scripted development, she also served as a production executive at the Hub Network and produced story for various unscripted series and game shows, including PARENTS JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND with host Joey Fatone, NBC's DEAL OR NO DEAL and FOX's TRADING SPOUSES and KITCHEN NIGHTMARES. She is now the Director of Development at HBO Max.
