Co-Executive Producer at Jimmy Kimmel Live
Douglas De Luca is a seasoned producer with an extremely diverse background that encompasses over twenty years of experience producing: feature films, TV series and specials, commercials, music videos, theater, and a wide variety of live events around the world. Currently, Mr. De Luca is co-executive producer for ABC’s high profile, late-night vehicle, Jimmy Kimmel Live’ (now in its tenth season).
Since September 2002, Douglas has worked to develop a diverse and broad base of strategic relationships, which have successfully helped generate revenue through the sale of branded content and integrations while providing previously untapped resources and events to the show. During this time, he also helped build JKL’s digital assets including its highly successful YouTube partner channel.
Just prior to Kimmel’s current late-night vehicle, (1998-2002) Douglas co-executive produced the first four seasons of Comedy Central’s original sketch comedy series, The Man Show, which starred Kimmel and Adam Corolla. In 2000, De Luca helped launch ABC’s groundbreaking, hit, reality show The Mole.
Concurrently in 2006 – 2008, Douglas created a sports and entertainment company called ProElite that focused on the fast-growing sport of Mixed Martial Arts. Mr. De Luca served as CEO of this public company and during his tenure negotiated and closed deals with Showtime Networks, CBS Television, Mark Burnett Productions, IMG, Fox Sports Net among a variety of other partners all over the globe. During this time, he took the company from an idea to the only Mixed Martial Arts organization to be broadcast live on network television in primetime.
His television credits include four years of producing NBC’s top-rated annual special, “The World’s Greatest Magic,” “The Walt Disney World Christmas Parade,” the “Universoul Circus,” (1998), for HBO, based on the only African-American owned and operated circus in the world.
In 1998, Douglas successfully created a world class sports franchise out of the loosely organized sport of “Freestyle Motocross” when he innovatively formed a touring group of specialist to perform at arena sized venues around the country.
