“Don Buchwald, is one of the most respected, talented, people in the entertainment business,” Yudin said. “A true icon! He has been a mentor to me from early on and we are thrilled to be associated, with Don, his agency, and his team.
MY Entertainment was recently acquired by Media Content Services (MCS), a storytelling and technology company specializing in engaging content for worldwide consumption. The acquisition furthers MCS’s expansion into the content-creation realm and allows MYE to expand their content to the global marketplace.
“We’re humbled and honored to be represented by such a great team at Buchwald with such a storied history and energy in unscripted,” added Shawn Moffatt, CEO of Media Content Services.
MYE is best known for producing the unscripted series “Ghost Adventures,” which originally debuted on The Travel Channel in 2008. The show is now in its 21st season. It follows ghost hunters Zak Bagans, Aaron Goodwin, Billy Tolley and Jay Wasley as they investigate locations that are reported to be haunted. The show recently shifted over to Discovery+ along with its numerous spinoffs, including “Ghost Adventures: House Calls.”
MYE has also been a leader in international formats and has recently expanded its international efforts through a co-development partnership with the Seoul-based company “Something Special”.
