Who We Are:

GRB Entertainment is an established trendsetter of unscripted alternative programming, with a proven track record of highly-rated, award-winning programming for networks worldwide. 

GRB Entertainment was recognized for this commitment to excellence in 2009, when its groundbreaking A&E series, Intervention, received the Emmy® Award from the Television Academy of Arts & Sciences for Outstanding Reality Program. Intervention continues to fuel A&E’s program schedule, with its newest season bringing the total episodes to over 200.

In 2015, GRB continues to lead the way with boundary-pushing, provocative programming, including Sex Sent Me to the ER for TLC, Outrageous Births: Tales from the Crib and Diagnose Me for Discovery Life Channel, Twisted Tales of My 9 to 5 for Investigation Discovery, and #redflag, a groundbreaking television event co-produced with Kim Kardashian, for HLN.  

Other recent water cooler productions from GRB include Pregnant & Dating for WE, Showdown of the Unbeatables for Nat Geo, Fame in the Family for E!; Wives With Beehives for TLC; and Season 9 of Untold Stories of the ER for TLC and Discovery Fit & Health.

GRB first burst onto the scene with male-oriented action programming, including Next Action Star, produced with Joel Silver, for NBC, The Ultimate Stuntman for ABC, Medal of Honor for TNT, Wild World of Spike for Spike, Hollywood’s Greatest Stunts for Discovery, and AXN: Action TV for Columbia TriStar.

GRB has also developed and produced a strong slate of female-appeal series, including Princes of Malibu for Fox, Growing Up Gotti for A&E, Designer to the Stars for WE, The Agency for VH1, and Flight Attendant School for Travel Channel.

Celebrating its 27th successful year as a producer and distributor, GRB’s programs are aired in primetime in more than 190 countries by the largest broadcasters in the world, including ITV and Channel 4 (U.K.), Canal+ and TF1 (France), Global and Bell Media (Canada), RTL and ProSieben (Germany), Fuji-TV and TBS (Japan), Nine Network and Foxtel (Australia) and Televisa (Mexico).

Our international distribution partners include Discovery Communications, National Geographic, OWN, VH1, Spike, WE, MTV, CNBC, Live Nation, Fox, Dick Clark Productions, and many others who distribute over multiple platforms including linear, digital, mobile, and VOD.
