Sony Pictures Television (SPT) has closed a two-year overall deal with reality producer Dave Broome, best known for the Biggest Loser, to create and produce unscripted television series through his company, 25/7 Productions.
"Dave has a great track record of producing captivating unscripted series that resonate with viewers," says Holly Jacobs, executive vice president for US reality and syndicated programming for SPT. "His understanding of the reality business and creativity make him an ideal partner, so we look forward to a long and prosperous relationship."
"Holly and the entire team at SPT are true forces of nature in our business and I couldn't be more excited to be working together as we continue to grow 25/7 Productions," said Broome.
Broome also recently partnered with Gloria and Emilio Estefan's production company, Estefan Enterprises, to produce the Spanish-language docu-series Dale Con Ganas for Univision.
During the past 15 years, Broome has created and produced hundreds of hours of unscripted programming for broadcast, cable and digital networks, including competition formats, docu-series, music specials, award shows and live television events. He is the creator and executive producer of NBC's longstanding hit The Biggest Loser, which is now in its 15th season in the US and seen in more than 90 countries around the globe. Broome recently finished production on ABC Family's soft-scripted summer hit, The Vineyard and TVGN's holiday special, Rich at Night, featuring country superstar John Rich.
