Neal, who has produced projects including Alaska Gold Diggers, for networks such as National Geographic Channel, Discovery Channel, TLC, MTV and Animal Planet, will develop and produce projects through his Thought Pirates shingle.

Prior to starting the company, he worked with several independent shops on both unscripted and scripted projects and has produced and directed several commercials. He is based in Los Angeles and repped by ICM.
