FBE (Fine Brothers Entertainment), an award-winning media company and studio that creates programming for a global audience across digital and traditional platforms, has announced it has entered into television development and co-production deals with partners including Nick Cannon’s NCredible Entertainment, Kinetic Content, a Red Arrow Studios company, and Sonar Entertainment.
FBE, who have a strategic partnership with Red Arrow Studios’ Studio71, is partnering with Kinetic Content and former ABC alternative and late-night programming chief John Saade, known for overseeing hit formats including Dancing with the Stars, The Bachelor, Shark Tank, and Jimmy Kimmel Live, on an addictive unscripted business format set in the world’s most unique product testing center. Benny Fine, Rafi Fine, John Saade, Brandie Tucker, Chris Coelen and Max Benator are attached as Executive Producers.
FBE will also expand its relationship with Nick Cannon’s NCredible Entertainment with a new unscripted show that takes celebrities through The Timeline of their lives with their fun and often forgotten social media posts. Cannon will serve as an executive producer and guest star in the series. Additional executive producers include Benny Fine, Rafi Fine, Brandie Tucker and Michael Goldman. FBE and NCredible Entertainment previously collaborated on the Nickelodeon series React To That.
In partnership with Sonar Entertainment, FBE is developing a new series that will capitalize on the explosion of viral food trends and fads that dominate the internet in a cross-country road trip series that will give viewers a look at these trends across the USA.
“We’re excited to partner with NCredible, Kinetic, and Sonar to bring these new formats to audiences that want to actively engage with the programming, and not just watch it,” said FBE CEO Rafi Fine. “As we continue expanding our business into television, we’re dedicated to reinventing traditional models and formats for a new type of consumer.”
FBE has created and sold 15 scripted and unscripted series to television networks and premium SVODs including Nickelodeon, Freeform, TruTV, Facebook, Youtube Red, EKO and more. In digital, the company has continued to experience rapid growth, producing 15 serialized shows every week for over 30 million subscribers. In 2017, FBE also produced its first feature film, F*&% the Prom, which can now be viewed on Netflix.
