MTV

On August 1, 1981, television launched the music video star. Rather than being the death of radio, MTV defined a pop culture generation and has continued to be a trend leader for three decades. The television enterprise invented the VJ, premiered arguably the first reality TV show, and challenged young people to become more politically active through the Rock the Vote campaign.

Magical Elves

Producers Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz joined forces as Magical Elves in 2001 to produce Bands on the Run for VH1, and in 2003 the Los Angeles-based duo took over season two of Project Greenlight for HBO

Bunim/Murray Productions

Producers Jonathan Murray and Mary-Ellis Bunim formed Bunim/Murray Productions in 1987. The credit (or blame) for “inventing reality TV” is often laid at their door, and it’s true that Bunim/Murray is a pioneer and still an innovator in the reality genre. In recent years, a feature film unit (BMP Films) and a music management arm (M-Music) have been added to the original mission.
