Hello Team Gusto,

I would be thrilled to join your roster as the development producer. Although most of my work has been in the live, studio-based comedy and variety scene — a high-stakes, deadline-driven environment — I am a daily consumer of food (and an occasional cook) who would love to be a part of the Gusto group.

I was part of the development team for CBC’s The Ron James Show that led to a five-season run, and have worked on developing many projects from comedy to documentary to talk shows for Vice, Bell Media, Corus, and others.

Over the years, and especially through my recent work with the Canadian Screen Awards, I have built a a strong and significant contact list of network executives, high-level talent, and crew. I would love to join Gusto to help create new, compelling programming ideas, where we can promote audience engagement and bring the love of food to new audiences. (To start, I know of at least two prominent household-name Canadians who expressed interest in being a part of a food-related series!)

For more career details, please visit the rest of my site! I look forward to hearing from you.

All the best,

Mark Selby
