Founded by Andrew Stephan and John Dorsey, ten100 is committed to producing content that makes an impact. Within a year of its formation, the boutique production company was recognized with both the Emmy and the Peabody Award.
With a background in television, feature film, commercial and music video production, the team at ten100 has created a variety of shows in all formats across multiple genres. These programs have targeted a wide demographic, airing on networks including VH-1, MTV, IFC, ABC, USA, SPIKE, ESPN, ANIMAL PLANET, the WB, and AMC, among others.
In February of 2010, the company’s production of the Red Bull Air Race was recognized with its 4th Emmy Nomination in just 3 years.

Late in 2010, ten100 produced PONY EXCESS, the final installment of ESPN’S critically acclaimed documentary series 30 For 30. The film became the highest rated documentary in the 30-year history of the network and earned a Peabody Award.
A year later, Dorsey & Stephan directed and produced The Marinovich Project for ESPN films. The film examined the rise and fall of quarterback Todd Marinovich and premiered on ESPN to rave reviews. In March of 2012, the film was nominated for an Emmy in the category of Outstanding Sports Documentary.
The company’s most recent film, Glory Hounds, is a feature length documentary that saw camera teams embed on the front lines in Afghanistan in order to capture the bond that is forged in combat between Military Working Dogs and their human handlers. The film, directed by Dorsey and Stephan, was produced with the full cooperation of the Pentagon and the US Department of Defense.
To complement its traditional production experience, ten100 has also forged a six year track record in the branded space. This year alone, the company has produced 8 short films for Nike and two feature length documentaries for Microsoft.
