Jason Brown is a film and television producer, as well as one of the partners in the Sean Daniel Company (SDC) — an independent production company developing some of the biggest television and film projects for a wide range of studios and networks. Among other, SDC is currently in production on the third season of the Syfy/Netflix co-production The Expanse. The company also helped set up, together with Tomek Bagiński and Platige Image, the recently announced The Witcher Netflix series.
Brown joined the company in 2009 and rose to become a partner in 2015. He now oversees the company's entire film and television slate and is also a producer developing a number of projects. Among them are Agent 13 for Universal with Charlize Theron starring and producing; Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, based on the acclaimed children’s horror book series, with Guillermo Del Toro directing for CBS Films/Lionsgate; as well as acclaimed director Park Chan-Wook’s next English language film, which is slated to shoot in 2018. He’s also developing an adaptation for television of the groundbreaking augmented-reality game Ingress from Niantic Labs, the makers of Pokémon Go and an offshoot of Google.
He spent his early professional years working in gaming as a critic and writer for GameSpot and Computer Gaming World magazine, and has made the intersection of linear and interactive stories a focus of his work. Prior to joining Sean Daniel at SDC, Brown worked for producers Dan Jinks and Bruce Cohen, as well as Scott Rudin at his home office in New York.
Raised in a globetrotting family, Brown is a graduate of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, studied at FAMU in Prague, grew up San Francisco and Berlin, and spends as much time as he can with his family who now live in Asia.
