Wild Rover Productions

Belfast, U.K.

 

Philip Morrow, Managing Director of Wild Rover Productions in Belfast produced a competition/adventure pilot, which was then passed on by the U.K. broadcaster.  He wanted to produce a U.S. version of this format for a major network.

 

Quinn Media Management developed a strategy to expose the U.K. show to key production companies.  In the fall of 2009, they created a target list of nine A+ production companies for pitch meetings.  As a result of the sales presentation and sizzle reel, the meetings generated offers from four possible production partners for Wild Rover.  Producers Jerry Bruckheimer and Bertram van Munster were attached for the development and production of TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN, which premieres on ABC in the Summer of 2011. Wild Rover's SECRET FORTUNE format is being piloted for CBS with Nigel Lythgoe and Big Red 2 Entertainment.
