Edelman Productions (San Francisco)

Edelman Productions is another one of those companies that quietly goes about doing a lot of the heavy lifting on US cable. The production company produces for HGTV, History, DIY, The Food Network and others, and since its inception in 1994 has created over 1,180 hours of programming. Though the slate includes history, travel, lifestyle and other genres, broadcasters picked the prodco’s home reno shows as especially notable productions.

The key to stable longevity? ‘We are sharp talent-finders,’ observes principle Steve Edelman, ‘we have national reach with offices in San Francisco, DC, Minneapolis and Atlanta, and take pride in our creative producers and storytelling skills.’
