Magical Elves names COO
US-based non-fiction prodco Magical Elves has promoted executive VP of production Dan Murphy to the role of chief operating officer.
Murphy succeeds Casey Kriley, who was named co-CEO of the Tinopolis Group company alongside Jo Sharon last year.
Since joining Magical Elves over a decade ago, Murphy has overseen shows such as Top Chef on Bravo, Kevin Hart’s Don’t Fuck This Up and Nailed It!, both on Netflix.
In the newly expanded role, he will be responsible for aligning all day-to-day operations including finance, physical production and strategic growth across Magical Elves’ portfolio of titles.
Prior to joining Magical Elves, Murphy served as VP of production for MTV West Coast at MTV Networks on series such as The Osbournes, Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica and Making the Band.
