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. Mettler 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 90s 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.

Mettler serves 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 National Geographic's programs Expeditions to the Edge and Drugged.
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 three years Mettler has won a Telly Award and a Banff Rockie Award, a Burbank International Film Festival Awareness Award and was nominated for a Producers Guild Award for outstanding reality program. He has been nominated twice but most recently won the 2009 Emmy Award for outstanding reality program… giving Intervention the highest television award in its genre.
Mettler continues to expand his projects under the shingle of his recently formed production company, MadJack Entertainment. When not writing, shooting or producing, he is busy developing both non-fiction and scripted fare for both broadcast networks and cable providers. Most recently, the divorce show, Chained To My Ex has been picked up for series by MSNBC, due to air in December 2012.
Mettler serves on the board of Mickey's Kids a charity giving underprivileged children scholarships to summer camp.
