Jim started his career in Hollywood on Criminal Minds and the brothers went on to consult, write and produce on numerous broadcast and cable dramas, including CBS’s NCIS: LA, Fox’s Lie to Me and CBS’s The Unit.

The company’s scripted division is headed by former Shane Brennan Productions President Grant Anderson, with the non-scripted division headed by former Pilgrim Media Group exec Josh Murphy. Spencer Gordon negotiated the deal on behalf of XG Productions.  XG’s scripted division is repped by Kyle Loftus at APA and Nir Caspi at WME for non-scripted.

“We are thrilled to enter into a first-look partnership with one of the world’s leading studios,” said XG Productions CEO, Peter Clemente. “Given Jim and Tim’s history with CBS hits like Criminal Minds and NCIS: LA, CBS Studios is the ideal home for developing new, authentic crime-related programming, and much more.”
