059 SPOTLIGHT Over the past decade, Los Angeles- based Fly on the Wall Entertainment has produced big unscripted successes for broadcast, cable and now streaming platforms. Here, its principals discuss the company's evolution and its approach to meeting the challenge of delivering hits in our fragmented media era. THE BUZZ FACTOR By Selina Chignall W hen Fly on the Wall co-founders and CEOs Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan reflect on a decade of running their Los Angeles-based unscripted indie, they see themselves as the last of a breed of producer — the jack-of-all-trades. "We pride ourselves on being able to work for all different sizes of networks and streaming services, and all different levels of shows creatively and from a budgetary standpoint," Meehan tells realscreen.
