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. He recently 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 presently Executive Producing the USA Network drama Erase; recently served as the Executive Producer and Director of FX’s SEX&DRUGS&ROCK&ROLL; as well as IFC’s acclaimed comedy series MARON. Serpico also executive produced the documentary BURN which won the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival Audience Award. He also co-created the longest running comedy benefit in America, Comics Come Home.
