EQ Media co-founder Jesse Fawcett has launched Fireworks Media Group, a new North American production company that will develop and produce premium unscripted and scripted content.

Fireworks Media Group has offices in Vancouver and L.A., with Robert Hardy leading the Canadian office as president of Fireworks Canada. Fawcett serves as CEO and executive producer.

Fawcett most recently served as president and executive producer of EQ Media Group. 

The new production banner has launched with an unscripted slate, including the recently announced Pamela Anderson’s Home Reno Project (8 x 60 minutes; working title) for Corus Entertainment’s HGTV Canada.

Executive producers on Pamela Anderson’s Home Reno Project are Fawcett, Hardy and Brandon Lee, with Corus Studios handling international distribution.

The company is also in production on second seasons of Selling the Big Easy for HGTV and Big Timber for Corus’ HISTORY channel. 

Fawcett’s past credits with EQ include HGTV’s No Demo Reno, Discovery+ reno series Restored, Travel Channel’s paranormal series Ghost Loop and DIY Network’s Texas Flip N’ Move.

EQ Media initially launched as Essential Media Group and was sold to Kew Media Group in 2018. The assets were re-acquired by Fawcett and Quail in 2020 after Kew Media went into receivership and the company was relaunched under the EQ Media Group banner.
