Our Talent

Original Productions wouldn't be all that it is, without its industry-leading talent partners. A talent first company, OP's many collaborations, from the likes of celebrity chef Carla Hall, comedy icon Jay Leno, the noted American journalist Dan Rather, to homegrown talent Josh Harris, offer not only outlets to new worlds and experiences, but brings to life thought-provoking programming. No two people see the world the same, and OP offers audiences the chance to see and experience the world around them, from the comfort of their own homes.

Our Creatives

Original Productions has had the pleasure of working with some of the most brilliant minds in the industry. Without these prolific directors, OP's programming would quickly diverge into a lack luster, low-brow version of reality TV. It's simple, we work with the best creators in the industry—from Emmy Award-winning producer/director Jeffrey Schwarz to industry-shaking screenwriter/director Reggie Hudlin, it's the partnerships between OP and these remarkable industry leaders that continue to place OP's programming notches above the rest.
