The Documentary Group produces work based on a very simple principle: have faith in the intelligence, taste, curiosity and integrity of the audience. The Documentary Group was founded in 2006 by the core members of PJ Productions following the death of legendary broadcaster Peter Jennings. The producers and directors, who were for many years the team behind Jennings’ documentaries at ABC News, are dedicated to continuing the tradition of smart and innovative filmmaking while enthusiastically embracing the modern and expanding media landscape.
The Documentary Group produces long form and short form films for the major commercial networks, public television and cable, as well as for the educational market, digital distribution and theatrical release.
Recent films include the 2016 Academy Award-nominated and Emmy-winning feature documentary Cartel Land, the feature documentary Midsummer in Newtown, the feature doc and social action campaign Girl Rising, and Academy Award-nominated Operation Homecoming. Other projects include the limited series The Homefront, Age of
Aerospace, and America in Primetime. TDG’s programs have won numerous honors, including the duPont, Peabody, Emmy, Gabriel and Polk awards.
