Facebook Bolsters original video ambition with MTV hire

As rumored a couple of months ago, Facebook is getting serious about making its own original content. 

The company has now hired a former MTV executive, Mina Lefevre, to be its Head of Development. According to Deadline, she will be leading Facebook’s efforts to create scripted and unscripted content — something she has plenty of experience with. 

During her time at MTV, as the executive vice president and head of scripted development, LeVre worked on shows like Awkward , Scream and Teen Wolf, to mention a few. 

It’ll be interesting to see what she ends up developing for Facebook, especially as it continues to make a major push into video.
