After making an indelible mark on television entertainment with the launch of History’s massive hit Pawn Stars in 2009, Brent Montgomery and Leftfield Pictures grew into one of reality TV’s major players. Under Montgomery’s oversight, the company evolved into a veritable U.S. superindie in 2013 with the formation of Leftfield Entertainment, which houses Leftfield Pictures, Sirens Media (Real Housewives of New Jersey), Loud TV (the upcoming Tiny House Nation) and Outpost Entertainment, a joint venture with veteran producer Jodi Flynn (Hoarders). With a series portfolio that ranges from Oddities for Science and Celebrity Home Raiders for Lifetime; to Blood, Sweat and Heels for Bravo and other “artefactual” hits for History such as American Restoration and Counting Cars, Leftfield has produced more than 400 hours of programming and nearly 800 TV episodes.
At Realscreen London, in an interview with John Smithson, creative director, Arrow Media, Montgomery will discuss the combination of hard work, savvy strategy and creative inspiration that steered the evolution of the company; and, as Leftfield Entertainment moves into a new era following its acquisition by ITV Studios U.S. Group, reveal what new territories and new genres he’s keen to explore.
