With new backing from John Schmidt's Content Media, Alex Gibney's expanding New York-based production company Jigsaw Productions has added Stacey Offman as VP of Development & Production and Dave Snyder as VP of Development as Gibney tries to keep up with his burgeoning production slate.

"Hiring Stacey and Dave is an important move for us as we accelerate our growth,” said Gibney, who directed "Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room" and Oscar-winning doc "Taxi to the Dark Side." “Jigsaw's aim is to roll out our distinctive brand of content to theatres, the U.S. networks and international partners."

TV and film veteran Offman will manage Jigsaw’s production business and develop new documentary and feature projects. Offman has produced both documentaries and non-fiction series across networks IFC, Comedy Central, F/X, History Television, OLN, Alliance Atlantis and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

Offman served as Morgan Spurlock’s producing partner at Warrior Poets on "Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden?" and "What Would Jesus Buy?" and "30 Days" at F/X. She served as supervising producer for Emmy-nominated Borderline TV and Head of Production & Development at Paperny Entertainment in Vancouver, Canada.

Dave Snyder will develop and oversee Jigsaw's new television series. Snyder was executive producer on season two of "World of Jenks" at MTV.  He has also run shows ranging from "Moving Up" on TLC to Discovery Networks science series "Dean of Invention." Snyder has produced, directed and/or written for many channels including HBO, NBC, Bravo, Comedy Central, Logo, A&E, and HGTV, and has created content for production companies such as @radical.media, Moxie Firecracker, World of Wonder, and Al Roker Productions.  Past shows have included “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” and “Project Jay.”

Jigsaw's slate of development projects includes several non-fiction series and documentaries along with several fiction films and TV series. In production is an investigative film for HBO, a Wikileaks film for Universal; "Finding Fela," about Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, a two-part music biodoc on The Eagles, and "Park Avenue: The Story of Two Americas."
