In her new role, Lisio will work to expand the fifth season’s unscripted content across all platforms. She collaborates with Kevin Iwashina, the documentary director for the fifth season.

“Mary is an exceptional producer and a wonderful person,” said Fifth Season CEOs Graham Taylor and Chris Rice. “Her depth of experience and great taste make her the perfect person to build our unscripted and documentary film development and production business.”

Lisio joins Fifth Season from Blumhouse Television, overseeing the company’s unscripted writing. In her work as “The Worst Roommate,” “The People v. The Klan”, “Pray Away”, “Anarchists” and “What’s Up, Brittany Murphy?” It includes such projects.

“I am thrilled to be joining this extraordinary and visionary group of people for season five,” Liscio said. “We share a passion for creating purpose-driven, unscripted and documentary content with incredible talent on and off screen. The Fifth Season culture is exactly what I’ve been looking for – inclusive, collaborative and above all, respectful. Thank you Graham and Chris for this great opportunity.”

Prior to Blumhouse, Liscio worked for Ridley Scott Scott Independent Productions and RSA Films. She was also a vice president at RJ Cutler’s Actual Reality Pictures.
