President, Pitch 5 Productions
Brian Gallagher started Pitch 5 Productions over nine years ago with a focus on commercials, digital and social content, experiential, and FAST channels. Pitch 5 allows Brian to expand on his past success to continue creating and producing unique, high-end content. Before opening Pitch 5 Productions, Brian began his career in the sports industry as an executive producer at Fox Sports and CBS Sports. He produced live games, studio shows, and a variety of player profiles.
After 10 years in the sports arena, Brian partnered with former Los Angeles Laker Rick Fox to form 1744 Entertainment, a production company. They created and produced unscripted original content and independent features. Brian forged strong relationships within the entertainment community and was offered a position at Skip Film, a Scott Free Company, as senior vice president of development. He started their original programming division from the ground up, developing a slate of projects and selling 12 network shows, plus numerous pilots for networks like National Geographic Channel, SyFy, A&E, HGTV, and others. One of his favorite and most successful shows is Bering Sea Gold on Discovery Channel. Three years later, he was named COO, guiding the company as a whole.
After building a solid infrastructure at Skip Film, Brian decided to start his own production company and in 2014 opened Pitch 5 Productions. Experiential events and marketing is another area of expertise for Pitch 5. The company has worked with clients from Rolex at the Oscars to a full-scale carnival for Kenra Beauty Products. The newest venture for Pitch 5 Productions is launching FAST channels. The first channel, The Homestyle Channel, begins in May of 2023. The goal is creating and executing four more channels over the year in the food, comedy, sports, and travel spaces under Pitch 5 Media, an extension of the production company.
In his free time, you'll often find Brian coaching his three kids in various sports and loving every minute of it! Originally from Seattle, he is also a huge Seahawks fan and so are all of the kids, including his wife, Amy, who used to be a Minnesota Vikings fan.
