Based in New York, Marco will oversee Sundance Channel's growing slate of original productions, reporting to Michael Klein, senior vice president of Original Programming and Development.

"Marco is an exceptionally skilled executive with an impressive background developing and producing across multiple genres, including unscripted, docu-soaps, scripted drama, comedy and lifestyle programming," said Klein.

Prior to that role, Marco worked at ABC Daytime as a production executive for "One Life to Live" and "All My Children," both of which won Emmy Awards during his tenure.
