GRB Entertainment quietly goes about piling up hit after hit, consistently delivering solid ratings to us cable and network. Consider Growing Up Gotti for A&E, Untold Stories of the ER and Tuckerville for TLC, Next Action Star for NBC, and their latest hit, Intervention, now at almost 40 episodes on A&E. One reader describes it as ‘A raw, often unpolished, show that hits the mark incredibly well by dealing with a serious issue [addiction] and putting a human face on it. Powerful stuff.’
But, even more than what’s on the screen, GRB should be praised for finding what every prodco aspires to – client diversity. Beyond the shows listed above, last year the company also produced Designer to the Stars: Kari Whitman for WE, Full Force Nature for The Weather Channel and True Caribbean Pirates for The History Channel, to name only a few. Not only is the programming smart, but so too are the execs.
