Dave Mace

EVP of Development at Brian Graden Media

Dave Mace is currently Executive Vice President of Development for Brian Graden Media. Prior to that, he served as VP of Alternative and Non-Fiction Programming at A&E, where he oversaw Storage Wars, Flipping Vegas, and Lachey’s Bar. This is a reunion for Mace and Graden, whose relationship dates back to 2005, when Graden was President of MTV Networks & Logo Group and hired Mace as Head of Development for the soon-to-launch Logo Network. While there, they developed such hit shows as RuPaul’s Drag Race and The Big Gay Sketch Show. Mace then went on to found VH1’s Creative Lab, Viacom’s first-ever internal team devoted to creating innovative, forward-thinking development. He first cut his teeth in development working for Oscar-winning producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.

At Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, he produced Emmy-winning scripted movies and mini-series such as "Life With Judy Garland", "The Beach Boys", "Martin & Lewis" and the ABC sitcom "It's All Relative." Mace continues to develop premium scripted content for Brian Graden Media.
