VP of DEVELOPOMENT
Known for his boyish good looks, pithy autobiographical writing, and unparalleled modesty, Mikey heads up development for 10Fold.
Known for his boyish good looks, pithy autobiographical writing, and unparalleled modesty, Mikey heads up development for 10Fold. Mikey developed his craft under the expert tutelage of Magical Elves founders Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz and was a D-Boy to the Development Queen, Jo Sharon (Now Co-CEO of Magical Elves). There, he played a debatable role in the successful development of Bravo’s “Gallery Girls,” CBS’s “3,” YouTube Premium Channel “The Stylish,” TNT/Oxygen’s “Cold Justice,” and Showtime’s “Time of Death.”
Spreading his young wings as a producer and creative executive, Mikey created and starred in the 2014 Amazon Prime digital series “Wayward Nation,” with 10Fold’s Producing Partner Harris Fishman. The irreverent but inspirational series caught the attention of “Jane the Virgin” star Justin Baldoni, who hired him to run development for Wayfarer Entertainment. There, Mikey developed a slate of life-affirming projects that were roundly rejected by programming executives for being “too happy,” however he did help shepherd the critically acclaimed series “My Last Days” to the silver screen at CW, as well as the network’s socially conscious digital platform “CW Good.”
Mikey was VP of Development at Left Hook Media (Endemol Shine Company), where he developed the CNBC series “Staten Island Hustle,” and the forthcoming Quibbi series “I Did it for Love,” as well as a slew of pilot presentations that were roundly rejected by programming executives for being “too loud.”
The stars finally aligned in early 2019 when Mikey became the first male model to run development for 10Fold and for the first time has been able to help create shows that are both “too happy” and “too loud...” and programming executives can’t get enough. Since joining the team, he’s helped to develop the forthcoming ABC Series “Magic Maker” with Adam Trent and is dedicated to executing the next generation of hits, happier and louder than anything he’s seen before... except maybe his sneakers.
Mikey is an alumni of Emerson College and Consigliere of the Emerson Mafia.
Catherine Batcha is thrilled to be an integral part of day-to-day activity at the 10fold office and acts as the team's Development Coordinator.
Catherine has been working in the entertainment industry for the past six years as an Actress, Model, Producer, and award winning Director.
She also was a former producer and content creator for companies such as RiverRock Productions and BRW Commercial Production.
