Jim Serpico has produced, written and directed an unprecedented amount of groundbreaking material. Projects such as the television series, Rescue Me, and the film Blow, have impacted the face of pop culture, as we know it. In 2018, he launched a new production and management company, Milestone TV & Film, Inc. Milestone will maintain Serpico’s darkly comedic tone and dramatic edge throughout its ventures. The new shop will allow him to continue producing a wide variety of projects including scripted and non-scripted, animated and live-action, drama, and comedy.
Serpico, along with Executive Producers Denis Leary and Peter Tolan, was recognized by the Producer’s Guild of America when Rescue Me was honored with the 2005 Visionary Award, which acknowledges producers whose work demonstrates a unique or uplifting quality. Serpico is currently Executive Producing the feature-length documentary WOMEN IN COMEDY for FX Networks; he was the Executive Producer and Director of FX’s SEX&DRUGS&ROCK&ROLL; as well as IFC’s acclaimed comedy series MARON. He is also the founder of Virtual Comedy Network, an independent record company that produces original stand-up comedy albums from today’s most prolific comedians.
