David Broome

CEO/Executive Producer

25/7 Productions

New York native Dave Broome received his Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from New York’s Hofstra University. In 1986, the diehard East Coaster moved West to host a radio sports-talk show on XTRA-AM, broadcast in Los Angeles and San Diego.

He eventually segued into television, producing live music specials and award shows for Clear Channel Communications. These included Ryan Seacrest’s American Top 40 Awards, Fox’s Jingle Ball Rock, and NBC’s Radio Music Awards. In 2003, Broome established his own 25/7 Productions, helming projects such as NBC’s Tsunami Aid: A Concert of Hope, a worldwide benefit held for the Tsunami victims of the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake, which he co-produced with George Clooney.

In 2004, Broome created and executive produced NBC’s longstanding hit, The Biggest Loser. The show is an international brand and was seen in over 90 countries worldwide.

Over the last 16 years, Broome has created and produced hundreds of hours of primetime network, streaming and cable series, including competition formats, such as NBC’s STRONG, docu-series such as CBS’s THE BRIEFCASE, music specials, award shows and live television events.

Broome’s latest documentary series, The Day I Met El Chapo, was a massive international hit for Netflix, and has received a tremendous amount of critical acclaim.

Just recently announced was the third season pickup of Broome’s latest global competition series in which he partnered with legendary actor/director Sylvester Stallone, called Ultimate Beastmaster. The show is Netflix’s first ever reality competition series and features athletes from around the world as they try and tackle a 600 ft long behemoth of an obstacle course called ‘The Beast’. The global format showcases 6 different languages within each episode and has been described as a game-changer within the industry.

Broome is also producing several yet-to-be announced projects for Netflix in the comedy space, which has brought him back to his earlier roots, his love for comedy & performing stand-up.

He has also taken 25/7 Productions into the Hispanic marketplace, forming a partnership with Gloria and Emilio Estefan’s production company, Estefan Enterprises, together producing the all-Spanish docu-series, Dale Con Ganas for Univision.

In addition to producing unscripted television, Broome has created scripted projects for HBO, DreamWorks, USA Network and now Netflix. He is currently developing projects with Robert Orci and Queen Latifah.

Broome has made several critically acclaimed sports documentaries for NETFLIX, including Two Days In April, which chronicles four NFL prospects going through the process of preparing for and participating in the NFL draft, and most recently, Fearless, a six-part doc series which follows top Brazilian professional bull riders in the world’s most dangerous sport.

Broome is a hands-on producer, who loves to create & develop projects that he is passionate about and that can move an audience.

Outside of the office, his passion carries over to his love of fitness, fine wine, and music -- often composing both for himself and for various 25/7 projects.
