Mortal Media and The Transition from Sports to Entertainment

Mar 9, 2024

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

Where sports and entertainment collide. From the NBA to the NFL, Blake Griffin and Ryan Kalil have struck the balance — co-founding the LA-based production company Mortal Media, where they have produced a number of hit projects including sci-fi dramedy “Hello Tomorrow!” on Apple TV+ and the recent remake of “White Men Can’t Jump” with 20th Century Studios. Sit down with them as they discuss the transition from sports to entertainment, how they’ve been able to leverage their careers as professional athletes to expand beyond that into creating content with Mortal Media, their investment in new technologies to stay on the cutting edge of what's next in film and television, and what’s to come for the company through 2024.
