About Us - Our Company

Launched in July 2009, Engine 15 Media Group has quickly established itself as an important and dynamic new player in the production and distribution of quality entertainment to broadcast, satellite and cable television as well as both the theatrical and home entertainment markets worldwide.

The company boasts an impressive portfolio of 24 quality feature films, primarily in the family category, as well as over 360 hours of television programming, which includes animated features, series and special interest faith based titles for television, cable and home video/DVD distribution markets worldwide.

The key behind the company's rapid rise to prominence is its stellar management team of recognized industry professionals, led by Chief Executive Officer Cheryl A. Freeman.

With over 25 years experience in home video and television, Freeman has served in senior-level roles with several high-profile independent entertainment leaders prior to forming Engine 15.

Together with her senior management team, Freeman implemented an aggressive business plan that called for amassing an expansive library of quality family film and television entertainment and attracting the best possible executives in all areas of finance and administration, production, sales and marketing and global distribution.

Freeman and the Engine 15 team recognized that the home entertainment and television industries are more selective than ever in their programming decisions. As a result, Engine 15 waged a full-scale production slate to secure a wide range of film and television titles that would sell-through for retailers and attract audiences for broadcasters. 

    Engine 15 also recognized that independent entertainment suppliers must back up their programming with comprehensive consumer marketing support. As a result, Engine 15 sought out seasoned marketing professionals who joined the company with an extensive track record of success in all areas of television and home video.

Most importantly, Engine 15 recognized the vital importance of establishing outstanding relationships with the production community. As a result, Engine 15 has created a new template that will forever redefine distributor-producer associations.

Says Freeman: "At Engine 15 , we are committed to our Co-Production partners as well as to the programmer and retailer. We strive to pay Co-Producers respect as well as revenues, by welcoming them as hands-on business partners. In essence, our philosophy is that passion drives success.  Engine 15 is built on passion, and the worldwide entertainment marketplace is responding."

With its focus on high-demand, under-served consumer markets, Engine 15 will present an appealing roster of family and children's animated titles to the burgeoning digital distribution, VOD, DVD and home video sell-through retail industry. The company's release plans call for a minimum of 8 new productions per year.

The unique message of Engine 15 is already resonating with producers, home video rental stores, mass merchants, online retailers and digital content providers throughout the United States and around the world.

"More and more, consumers are demanding entertainment that meets their family's interests. One of the most important words in today's ever-evolving entertainment media market is 'niche' - and Engine 15 will fill the niche across the family category of entertainment," said Freeman.
