Punch Drunk Pictures is a full service television, digital and film production company that lives (and sometimes dies) by the maxim, “Stop making stupid people famous”. We find the world to be an infinitely fascinating place, full of inspiring people and we strive to reflect it as honestly and entertainingly as we’re able.
Co-owner (& DREAM WEAVER)
Before launching Punch Drunk, Rob headed up development at multiple major production companies - Leftfield Pictures, Pilgrim Studios, Optomen, Renegade Pictures - on both sides of the pond. He's responsible for selling more shows than he’d care to remember, including - The Pool Master (Animal Planet), Rivermen (History), Fast N Loud (Discovery), Street Outlaws (Discovery), Bring It! (Lifetime), Raising Whitely (OWN), Swamp Pawn (CMT), Gordon Ramsay: Shark Bait (Channel 4), Mary Portas Secret Shopper (Channel 4), Heston’s Mission Impossible (Channel 4), Beeny’s Restoration Nightmare (Channel 4), Pop Star To Opera Star (ITV) and The Cherry Healy Films (BBC).
Co-Owner (& PRODUCTION MAVEN)
Prior to Punch Drunk, Dave was Vice President of Current Series for Original Media, overseeing multiple shows produced out of the west coast office. As a seasoned editor, shooter and field producer, he works closely with show runners to ensure each production meets, and even exceeds, its potential. Prior to becoming an unscripted producer, he worked as a freelance editor and DP for Pilgrim Studios, World of Wonder, Leftfield Pictures, Electus, OWN, T Group Productions and Associated Press.
Development Coordinator (& Idea Machine)
Prior to Punch Drunk, Kayla was a Development Assistant at Original Productions where she helped both the development and casting teams on numerous projects. In true development fashion, she can be found cold-calling the next big character or deep into research on a new world. Her casting work can be seen on Animal Planet's Animal House and History Channel's Blood Money.
