Original Productions

Original Productions is a television production company based in Burbank, CA. It was founded in 1999 by Thom Beers and was acquired by FremantleMedia in 2009 and made into a subsidiary.

It is best known for producing reality television shows for the Discovery Channel but has more recently produced shows for other networks such as History, truTV, and Spike.

Some of its most popular shows are Deadliest Catch, Ice Road Truckers, Ax Men, and 1000 Ways to Die. Its earlier hit was Monster Garage.

The company's closing consists of a black background with blue graffiti sprayed onto it, and the company's name in a typewriter font, with a small FremantleMedia byline below. A girl says "It's original!"
