New York-based prodco Jupiter Entertainment, a Sky Studios company, has signed a first-look co-production partnership with newly minted Bronco Productions, launched by actor, producer and podcaster Oliver Hudson (Scream Queens, Nashville) and his producing partner Josh Algra, a brand and media executive.
Under this arrangement, Jupiter will have exclusive rights to Bronco’s complete slate of content, focusing on premium lifestyle and adventure formats within the documentary and unscripted, limited-series space. Both Hudson (pictured) and Algra will work in close tandem with Jupiter president Patrick Reardon and vice president of development Chris Spry.
The companies already have multiple series in development including the tentatively titled World’s Best Dad that has Hudson both in front and behind the camera. The series follows Hudson in a global quest to meet and celebrate the best fathers on Earth. These dads will push him to his limit to determine if he has what it takes to be real-life “World’s Best Dad.”
“Oliver and Josh have an infectious mix of enthusiasm, heart and humor, which they infuse into their storytelling,” Reardon said in a statement. “We’re excited to align with Bronco and develop projects that capture this extraordinary energy.”
“I’ve always been fascinated with the human condition. Why people do the things they do? How did they get to where they are? The origin story! I’m excited to create content that, whatever the genre, digs a little deeper into those details, and I am grateful to be a part of the Jupiter family who is giving me that platform to explore my curiosity and what inspires me,” added Hudson.
Jupiter is currently in production across multiple projects, including hit true-crime franchises Snapped (Oxygen), In Pursuit with John Walsh (ID), ID Murder Mystery (ID), Homicide Hunter (ID) and Killer Couples (Oxygen). Presently, the company is also producing Season 3 of the premium docuseries 4th and Forever (CuriosityStream), the feature-length documentary First to the Top of the World (Discovery) and premium docuseries Heval (CuriosityStream).
