The Canadian foursome behind MTV’s The Buried Life (pictured) have opened a Vancouver office to complement their recently launched LA prodco, Four Peaks Media.

Ben Nemtin, Dave Lingwood and Duncan and Jonnie Penn – who got their start in the industry by creating, starring in and exec producing The Buried Life - launched Four Peaks Media this past January.

Series confirmed for broadcast on the prodco’s slate include Greatest Party Story Ever, coproduced with LA-based Den of Thieves, and a one-hour special titled Rocky Mountain Reno, which is a copro with Tricon Films & Television for HGTV.

Four Peaks Media is also in development on a feature doc based on The Buried Life, for which it has received partial funding from Canada’s Super Channel.

The prodco says it has further projects in development, including a scripted series with Vin Diesel producing, and a tech series currently titled The Woz, in collaboration with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and TV presenter and former MythBusters star Kari Byron.
