When it comes to production companies on the rise, Mandt Brothers Productions is opening all the right doors!

Now that all the up fronts have wound down, Mandt Brothers Productions slate is looking way up! Check out what the amazing production company has up its sleeve! We are pretty sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

Four time Emmy-Winning Producers, Neil and Michael Mandt, have announced a series of new film & television projects in their production roster. The Mandt brothers are well known as entertainment, sports television, and film producers and are responsible for such shows as Jim Rome is Burning, Beg, Borrow & Deal, Destination Truth and dozens of others.

Their projects include:

Young Sonoma (Creators, EP), a pilot in development for E! that chronicles the personal and professional lives of premier families in world-renowned wine country, Sonoma Valley, featuring Envolve Winery’s Ben Flajnik (The Bachelor) and others (announced at E!’s Upfront).

JaMarcus Russell: The Comeback 2013 (Creators, EP), a currently-airing web series for BleacherReport.Com that follows the former NFL first overall draft pick who won a $61 million dollar contract with the Raiders only to be released following a drug scandal. Dubbed the biggest draft bust in NFL history, the show chronicles his attempt to make a return to professional football.

• The Million Dollar Arm (Co-Producers), the upcoming Disney film starring Jon Hamm, based on the true rags to riches story of disenchanted sports agent (JB Bernstein) who set up a reality show contest in India for the best pitcher. It led to the discovery of two Indian teenage cricket players, Rinku Singh and Dinesh Patel, who Bernstein brought back to the United States, mentored in the game of baseball, resulting in the first major league contracts; and

• An untitled Food Network series (Creators, EP).


Mandt Bros. Productions has created and executive produced shows for networks such as ESPN, Showtime, E!, SyFy, Tru Tv, Food Network, FUEL, Speed, and more. They oversaw over 8 seasons and 2,000 episodes of one of the longest running sports talk shows in the history of ESPN, Jim Rome Is Burning, as well the SyFy hit series, Destination Truth.

Not only have they filmed television series and movies in over 50 countries worldwide, they also are owners of RUFF China, the only Mixed Martial Arts league in China.
