ABOUT THE PRODUCERS
RX Entertainment Media
This New York City based production company was started by Cleve Keller and Joe Dinki. They are experienced development executives and producers of TV (AMC, Vh1, Discovery Health, Spike, ABC Family, The N) and commercial content. For 8 years, Cleve helped produce series for Disney including Disney's Doug, PB&J Otter and Sabrina the Teenage Witch. She is also the mother of a child on the spectrum. The genesis of Bounce came from her desire for fun and nurturing programs for children like her own to love and share.
Brandissimo! Inc exists to entertain children and teens. We have created and produced numerous television series and websites that are dedicated to this purpose. This year we were even nominated for an EMMY® for outstanding animated special Class program for Bigfoot Presents: Meteor and the Mighty Monster Trucks which airs on Discovery Kids and The Learning Channel in the United States. We have won numerous other awards and honors, too, but no programs have ever been more important to us than these, because these programs are very important to our customers. We have received extraordinary letters from parents telling us that our shows have made a real difference in their lives because they have actually benefited their children. You can read some of these wonderful letters here. We started on this journey simply to make shows that our friend Cleve's son would love, but this has become a very special adventure. Along the way, we've made new friends and found an entirely new audience of children for our programs. We are happy to welcome you to our group of friends.
