Not your typical content production studio
As founder, Colby Gaines knows the back roads of life are littered with funny moments and compelling experiences. Moments that make engaging stories – stories waiting to be told.
BRE recently relocated from NYC to Austin, Texas for its experienced talent pool, prevailing local tax incentives, lower production costs, and more family-oriented Texas lifestyle. Our studios offer the full complement of video and editing equipment to execute everything in-house. We develop, sell, and produce across all genres for broadcast and cable networks, both domestically and internationally, as well as digital platforms.
All unscripted. All the time
With a focus on compelling stories that are family-friendly, evergreen, and unifying, BRE media spans across television, film, digital, and podcasting platforms. Our genres include food, home, comedy, games, and sports. BRE’s talent is a mix of A-list celebrities and home-grown stars.
The back roads team has years of experience producing ratings-topping TV shows, entertaining branded content, music videos, and digital series. We’ve built a team that includes strategic partners from all walks of life, who share a love of comedy, a passion for original storytelling, and a drive to produce highest quality content.
