| EVAN ROSENFELD
EVAN ROSENFELD is an award-winning creator, showrunner, executive producer, and director of non-fiction entertainment born in Miami, Florida and currently living in Los Angeles, California.
Evan has been a production executive at Viceland/Vice Media, Mandalay Sports Media, and most recently, Hecho Studios, where he was Head of Documentary and TV, building out the first slate of projects and forming partnerships with industry legends Shonda Rhimes, Adam McKay, Peter Berg, Rainn Wilson, and Michael Strahan.
In 2017, Evan formed the production company Dukes Up with his wife Jenna Rosenfeld, an experienced unscripted TV and documentary producer who currently serves as co-executive producer of hit Bravo series Vanderpump Rules. Dukes Up is currently in production on a series for HBO MAX.
Evan is the creator, executive producer (along with LeBron James and Maverick Carter) and director of Warriors of Liberty City, a documentary series that premiered September 16th, 2018 on STARZ.
The LA Times said it was "One of the best reasons to turn on a television,” and that “It might even make your life a little better."
The series had its World Premiere as an Official Selection of the 2018 SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas. Warriors is the first documentary series to be accepted to the festival.
Prior to "Warriors," Evan was the showrunner and executive producer of VICE World of Sports, a sports documentary series that aired for two seasons (2015 to 2017) on VICELAND and later on ESPN. The series premiered at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival.
VICE World of Sports, which won the “Outstanding Sports Program” category in the 28th Annual Producers Guild Awards (2017), was Evan’s first series in the showrunner position. The series was nominated for the award again in 2018 and for an Emmy in the "Best Sports Documentary" Category.
Originally, he cut his teeth as a producer at renegade Miami-based production company rakontur on the cult classic feature Cocaine Cowboys, directed by Billy Corben. The project documents the roots of the cocaine trade and its violence in South Florida and was widely praised in the media as one of the best films of the 2000s.
Evan worked with rakontur for the next six years, including as a producer on two of ESPN’s most successful “30 for 30” films: the Peabody-winning and Sports Emmy-nominated The U, which chronicled the Miami Hurricanes as a microcosm for the racial and cultural transformation of 1980s Miami, and Broke, the “30 for 30” Season Two premiere which drew a record-setting 2.53 million viewers with stories of retired NBA and NFL stars who have since gone bankrupt.
Evan’s experience extends to the brand world as well, developing, directing, or producing commercials and branded content for Hecho Studios and 72andSunny for clients including the NFL, TRUTH anti-smoking initiative, and Mailchimp.
