Intertainer was founded in 1996 by entertainment industry professionals Richard Baskin, Jeremiah Chechik and Jonathan Taplin. All three have extensive experience in creating and producing entertainment content for major film, television, music and interactive companies, including Warner Bros. Films and Records, Sony Films and Records, MGM, United Artists Pictures, Orion Pictures, Miramax Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox, Universal Pictures, Walt Disney Pictures, Paramount Pictures, UA Records, ABC Records, Rank Films, Nippon Herald, PBS, BBC, ABC, Fox, Showtime, Turner Broadcasting, Microsoft and Viacom New Media.
Their work has received critical acclaim including nominations for Academy Awards, Emmys, Grammys, Clios, Writers Guild, BAFTA and Cable Ace Awards.
The principals of Intertainer have joined together to build a broadband program service in the belief that the entertainment industry is at the threshold of a major paradigm shift in programming. Their collective relationships with the highest level of content providers, combined with a unique technological perspective gained over years of working in the cutting edge of new media, provides a competitive advantage over those approaching broadband delivery from a more hardware-oriented viewpoint.
