BOILERMAKER ENTERTAINMENT BELIEVES IN THE POWER OF COLLABORATION TO CREATE MEANINGFUL, CINEMATIC STORY-TELLING ACROSS ALL GENRES.
ABOUT BOILERMAKER ENTERTAINMENT
Boilermaker Entertainment is an independent production company that develops intellectual properties to create and produce dramatic television, feature films, and unscripted shows. Co-founded by Louis Shaw Milito and Phil Conserva, fast friends and 15-year veterans of the CBS hit series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, the two worked closely together while producing over 300 hours of the world’s most-watched, Emmy-nominated, TV drama. Louis served as Executive Producer/Director and was tapped by Bruckheimer/CBS to direct the two-hour series finale in 2015. Phil served as Producer/Director overseeing Post Production while spearheading his role as music industry liaison to the series. In 2016, Boilermaker (formerly Rhino Pictures Inc.) ventured into the non-scripted genre by creating the original series, Cuban Chrome (8×60) for Discovery Channel. As Executive Producers, Louis and Phil made history with Cuban Chrome, the first American series to be filmed entirely on location in Cuba. Taking its name from the trained craftsmen who produce steel fabrications designed to operate at high pressure, the Boilermaker team forges ahead – dedicated to launching bold subject matter across all genres and formats: from broadcast to cable to digital and all emerging platforms worldwide.
