With a lifelong admiration for military families and their sacrifices, it makes perfect sense that Jeff has made a point of sharing their stories for much of his career. He continues to seek out emotional and meaningful stories about American military missions and service to share with viewers.
THE WATCH: America’s Nuclear Mission Revealed
Television Documentary Series
For the first time in television history, THE WATCH: America’s Nuclear Mission Revealed, will detail the incredible world of our nation’s nuclear mission. This documentary series will focus on the people, weapons, and tasks of this extraordinary and virtually unknown military mission. For those Americans who remember the Cold War, they recall a time when the United States and the Soviet Union faced off repeatedly with enormous arsenals of thermonuclear weapons until the early 1990s; the world has changed rapidly since then. THE WATCH is the first television series that will examine the role of the United States military in preserving global peace amongst the increasing numbers of weapons of mass destruction wielded by both nation-states and terrorist groups.
A multi-episode and multimedia production, THE WATCH will be filmed in a docu-follow format featuring the men and women of United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) performing their global mission of nuclear deterrence in the air, on land, and at sea. The danger and gravity of the mission will be conveyed from the perspective of these American military personnel, most of whom average only 28 years old. Their authentic personal stories told from both in their homes with their families and at work embedded in their mission, will be an unprecedented reveal to the global television audience. Each episode will build on the preceding ones as the series captures the extreme pressures endured by the American men and women responsible for executing the single most important military mission on the planet. The project is currently under the Department of Defense review and approval process.
War On Top of the World
Television Documentary Series
On top of the world, the new Cold War has never been hotter. Russian, Chinese and United States military forces are massing in the Arctic as ice melts and access to sea and land battlefields open for the first time in history. War on Top of the World will show viewers an unprecedented view of the missions, weapons, locations and people that are shaping the sharp edge of the new Cold War, one being fought in the most hostile natural environment on the planet. On snowy land, in the frigid air, on the sea and under the icepack, the television series offers literally never-before seen views of actual military warfare operations in the Arctic. Highlights include access to submarines seeking their enemy counterparts under the ice, remote intelligence gathering bases where personnel operate surveillance equipment and dodge grizzly bears, and exclusive air-to-air filming of stealth airplanes in action.
This groundbreaking television series will show the world the definitive view of the new, previously hidden showdown in the Arctic between Russia, China, and the United States of America – the War On Top Of The World.
America's Marine Aviators
Jeff proudly produced the documentary America’s Marine Aviators (AMA), the first film in television history to tell the story of one of America’s most valiant fighting forces: U.S. Marine Corps pilots and aircrew. The deeply personal story received the distinct honor of being selected as the first film (among 277 total candidates) screened at the prestigious 2009 GI Film Festival at the National Archives Theater in Washington D.C. The distinguished guest list for the world premiere included Assistant Commandant of the Marine Corps General Jim Amos, and NASA Administrator Charles F. Bolden Jr., a highly decorated retired Marine aviator.
The film was also featured at the 97th Birthday Celebration of Marine Aviation at Marine Corps Air Station New River in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Former Marine Aviator and automotive legend Bob Lutz headlined the celebration. The event included a ceremony honoring Marine aviators, aircrew, and Navy Corpsmen who have given their lives in Marine aviation since 2003 in the Global War on Terror.
The film’s next major milestone was its U.S. broadcast premiere on the Public Broadcasting System (PBS) in 2010. After its successful PBS broadcast run the film was optioned for global distribution by Armed Forces Network (AFN). In 2018, America’s Marine Aviators enjoyed a highly successful global streaming premiere on Amazon PRIME VIDEO where it can still be viewed. The film continues to garner tremendous global viewership and is lauded for its stark realism and exclusive access to Marines and their families in the narrating of the film.
