Brian Tessier

SUPERVISING PRODUCER

Brian Tessier has collaborated with Peter Jones for nearly twenty years. The multiple Emmy nominee and Peabody Award-winner began as an Associate Producer/Producer on numerous A&E Biography episodes, including profiles as diverse as Dr. Seuss, Roman Polanski, Marvin Gaye and Eva Braun. He received a Primetime Emmy nomination for Stardust: The Bette Davis Story (TCM), and praise from critic Tom Shales, who called the film “one of the most personal, intimate and shocking biographical documentaries ever made on a movie star.”

For the Peabody-winning Inventing LA: The Chandlers and Their Times (PBS), Tessier amassed a striking collection of archival material that Variety hailed as “absolute aces.” He oversees all budgets, schedules, contracts and clearances for PJP, including those for Johnny Carson: King of Late Night and all fifty episodes of Carson on TCM hosted by Conan O’Brien. In 2016, the LA native earned his second Emmy nomination for Angeleno (PBS SoCal). He has a BA in Psychology from UCLA.
