Jigsaw Productions is helmed by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney, considered one of the most prolific and thought-provoking documentary filmmakers of our generation. Jigsaw has produced some of the most acclaimed documentary films in recent years, including the explosive and highly popularized "Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief," one of the most watched documentaries in HBO’s history; the Academy® and Emmy Award-winning "Taxi to the Dark Side"; the Oscar®-nominated "Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room"; the multiple Emmy Award-winning "Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God"; Showtime’s Emmy-winning "History of the Eagles," the controversial "We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks"; and the provocative film about Lance Armstrong’s fall from grace, "The Armstrong Lie." More recent Jigsaw releases include the Peabody Award-winning "Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown," which became one of the most popular documentaries on HBO. The two-part special "Sinatra: All or Nothing At All" premiered in April 2015 on HBO, and "Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine" premiered at the SXSW Film Festival in March 2015. The Man in the Machine, which was the opening night selection of the San Francisco International Film Festival in April 2015, came out in theaters, iTunes and VOD on September 4, 2015 and will air on CNN in 2016. Since partnering with Content Media in 2012, Jigsaw has made a foray into television, starting with "Death Row Stories." Executive Produced by Gibney and Academy Award-winning® Robert Redford and narrated by Academy Award-winning® Susan Sarandon, Death Row Stories explores a different capital murder case in each episode. Jigsaw also produced Edge of Eighteen, a groundbreaking documentary series for Al Jazeera America in which high school seniors were mentored by the team at Jigsaw as they filmed their lives on the brink of adulthood. Television projects currently in production include: The New Yorker Presents for Amazon, which brings to life the venerable The New Yorker magazine; a four-part docu-series for Netflix and a new docu-noir series for the A&E, both of which will be announced later this year. From geopolitics to sports, finance to music, all of Jigsaw’s work reflects the myriad interests of its founder, who refers to himself as a “filmmaker with journalistic baggage.” Whether the company is creating a documentary or narrative film, a scripted or unscripted series, Jigsaw adheres to a particular ethos: well-told, insightful, scrupulously researched, and visually poignant stories, which ignite and engage our curiosity. Reaching audiences on screens small or large, on platforms digital or traditional, Jigsaw aims to achieve critical and commercial success without sacrificing style or authenticity.

Every February, on the first Thursday, at the same hotel, dignitaries and guests from 100 countries gather in America’s capital for a blessing. Every U.S. president since Dwight Eisenhower has attended the National Prayer Breakfast but the host organization has long shrouded itself in secrecy. Technically, it’s called The Fellowship, but former “brother” members like New York Times bestselling author Jeff Sharlet know the group as The Family.
