Ignjatovic spent 14 years at MTV, where he was responsible for developing innovative projects with music talent, as well as long-form, music-based programming for the network. He co-created, produced and developed such memorable programming as "Meet the Barkers," "Diary," "mtvICON," "Dancelife" with Jennifer Lopez, and "Life & Rhymes of...," which featured profiles of artists including Nas, 50 Cent, Kanye West, Mary J.
