Our growth into the entertainment space domestically and worldwide continues with the recent partnership with international TV format outfit, Small World. Founded over 15 years ago, Tim and Colleen Crescenti started the company to find and distribute the most unique and entertaining television content around the world. 

Tim was named by Broadcast magazine as a ‘Top Dealmaker’ in international television, Tim has brought the world such global hits as Dragons’ Den (aka Shark Tank in his Sony days), I Survived a Japanese Game Show, Silent Library, Miss Country Girl,  The Fan and Japanizi Going Going Gong! and Grandpas Over Flowers aka Better Late Than Never which made history as the first South Korean format to be adapted in the US, where it launched to #1 ratings on NBC, airing for two seasons with the highest completion rate out of any unscripted NBC show at a whopping 73%. The format has since been optioned in 18 countries and produced in eight (including the US).

Tim has personally consulted on over 195 shows produced in 76 countries ranging from international adaptations of Wheel of Fortune to Joe Millionaire. He is responsible for placing seven format titles on the major US networks alone, encompassing 22 seasons and still growing.

Prior to launching Small World, Tim was VP of international formats for Sony Pictures Television International. Tim discovered the winning format Dragons’ Den/Shark Tank now adapted by Sony into 34 countries.  Tim also served as VP of international production for Fox World, where he covered the worldwide roll-out of Fox’s formats including Joe Millionaire, and Simple Life.

In 1994, Tim produced the first-ever concert festival in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia starring Mohammed Wardi.  A few months later he produced the ESPN documentary “Dreamfield” which chronicled the life-changing stories at the movie location of “Field of Dreams.”
