Production house 44 Blue Productions has inked a first-look deal with human behavioral scientist, author and podcaster Jon Levy.

Under the terms of the agreement, 44 Blue has secured the unscripted rights to Levy’s (pictured) first book, The 2 AM Principle: Discover the Science of Adventure. In it, he breaks down the science of adventure, sharing with readers the life-changing lessons he has learnt from his worldwide adventures. Levy combines these tales with concrete science to show how anyone can live life more fully and adventurously.

Brands and companies including Samsung, Starwood, Microsoft, RetailMeNot, Truffle Pig and Dell, have used Levy’s research to support their efforts in consumer engagement, customer acquisition and influencer relations.

“We’re excited to collaborate with Jon to create content around his innovative work exploring the science of influence and adventure,” said Stephanie Noonan Drachkovitch, co-founder & president of 44 Blue Productions, in a statement. “We’re looking forward to integrating his unique experiences, philosophies and cultural research into ideas that are fresh, entertaining and thought — provoking for broadcast, cable, digital and emerging platforms.”

44 Blue’s roster of celeb-reality programming and partners include Mark Wahlberg, Donnie Wahlberg (Wahlburgers), Whoopi Goldberg (According to Alex) and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson & Dany Garcia’s Seven Bucks Productions (Rock and a Hard Place), among others.

Its current series includes E!’s Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry, A&E’s Nightwatch and Animal Planet’s Pitbulls & Parolees
