Advisory Board Chair
Brent Montgomery is CEO of ITV America, with oversight of ITV’s US portfolio, including ITV Entertainment, Leftfield Pictures, Sirens Media, Outpost Entertainment, Loud TV, Riot Creative, Thinkfactory Media, High Noon Entertainment, DiGa and Gurney Productions. As the largest independent producer of non-scripted content in the US, ITV America produces more than 800 hours of content and 100 programs, working in partnership with more than 40 networks. Montgomery began his career in unscripted television with stints on such series as The Bachelor, Wife Swap and Blind Date. His company, Leftfield Pictures, sold its first series (The Principal’s Office) in 2008 and grew rapidly, adding myriad series and hundreds of programming hours to its roster, including the industry-defining franchise Pawn Stars. In 2013, at a time when most production-company owners were selling their companies, Montgomery completed the first debt-financing, TV production-company acquisition in the US, purchasing Sirens Media. Soon after, he created and launched Loud TV and Outpost Entertainment, selling what had then become the Leftfield Entertainment group to ITV in 2014. Since then, the Leftfield companies have secured more than 30 new commissions such as Alone, Blood, Sweat and Heels, Cutting It: in the ATL, and specials Billy the Kid: The New Evidence and Brain Surgery Live. Other hits include The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Tiny House Nation, Forged in Fire, Food Porn and upcoming FOX series American Grit with John Cena.
