Park Slope’s creative team, Paul Reitano and Terrence Sacchi, were the youngest producers in the history of ABC’s NIGHTLINE. They have since written, produced, and directed content for ABC, DISCOVERY, MTV, TLC, PBS, A&E, VH1, OWN, ANIMAL PLANET, G4, and OXYGEN.
Park Slope Productions’ Alaskan Bush People, is a docu-series for Discovery Channel. The nearly 100 episode run has chronicled the lives of the Brown family as they work to achieve their dream of a life together in the wilderness. Now in its twelfth season, the series has become an international phenomenon and continues to top rating charts.
The team also produced Best Funeral Ever, a docu-series for TLC, and Houston Beauty, a docu-series for the OWN network. Previously, their docu-series Facing Trauma (OWN) charted the journey of facial trauma survivors as they sought life-changing reconstructive surgery, and their series Two Months, Two Million (G4) chronicled the lives of young online poker players in Las Vegas.
Park Slope Productions is represented by Shade Grant at ICM Partners.
Paul Reitano and Terrence Sacchi met in a kindergarten classroom in Park Slope, Brooklyn, NY. The summer of their junior year of college, they picked up a camera and made a documentary about their favorite late night sports radio talk show host.
The film was a hit, sold locally, and somehow found its way into the hands of Ted Koppel at ABC.
A couple of rejected pitches later, they went on to produce, direct, and edit the first of three specials for Nightline. Since founding Park Slope Productions, Paul and Terrence have become known and respected for producing thoughtful reality and documentary television.
