Sam Mettler

Executive Producer – Creator – Director – Writer

MadJack Entertainment

Emmy winning Executive Producer Sam Mettler is the creator of the gripping real-life series Intervention. However, Mettler spent his early years on much lighter fare. He has been a comedic writer, actor and occasional stand-up comedian, with guest starring roles on The Drew Carey Show, The Norm Show and multiple TV commercials. He built on these experiences and early 90’s stint as morning man radio host in Syracuse, NY, as he rose to the small screen with writing credits on South Park, MTV’s Head-Trip and Fox’s Misguided Angels.

When reality-based programming exploded, Mettler decided to take his talents to the genre and drew upon comedy’s alter ego, tragedy, to create what the New York Times called “a significant evolutionary moment in reality television,” Intervention.

Lauded by Oprah Winfrey, Larry King, The Today Show, Good Morning America and Howard Stern, Intervention in its 14 seasons was a ratings and critical bonanza. After a brief hiatus, new episodes of Intervention are now airing again on A&E to critical and popular acclaim.

Over 12 seasons, Mettler served as Executive Producer, Director and Writer, working from the field to the edit bay in what many believe to be one of the most emotionally, mentally and physically difficult non-fiction programs ever produced. In the non-fiction genre, Mettler has also served as writer and producer for the series Expeditions to the Edge and producer and format creator for the series Drugged; both for National Geographic.

Mettler has won five Prism Awards for outstanding non-fiction program dedicated to the accurate portrayal of addiction on television and a commendation from the New England Association of Drug Court Professionals. In the last four years Mettler has won a Telly Award and a Banff Rockie Award, a Burbank International Film Festival Awareness Award and was nominated for a two Producers Guild Awards for outstanding reality program. He has been nominated twice but won the 2009 Emmy Award for outstanding reality program… giving Intervention the highest television award in its genre.

Mettler continues to expand his projects with his experienced team at MadJack Entertainment. When not writing, shooting or producing, they are busy developing both non-fiction and scripted content for broadcast, cable, and new media. Most recently, MadJack Entertainment created and produced MSNBC’s ground-breaking divorce series, Chained To My Ex and Investigation Discovery’s compelling crime series Breaking Point.
