Todd A. Nelson Extends Contract as CEO of 3 Ball


MANHATTAN BEACH: Todd A. Nelson, co-founder and CEO of 3 Ball Entertainment, has renewed his contract with the company for an additional two years.

Nelson co-founded 3 Ball Productions in 2003 with his producing partner JD Roth. In 2006, they sold 3 Ball to Eyeworks Group, and in 2014, Warner Bros. announced a $273 million deal to acquire Eyeworks’ international production businesses. The company rebranded in January 2015 as 3 Ball Entertainment, with Nelson and Ross Weintraub named co-CEOs.

3 Ball Entertainment Chairman Reinout Oerlemans commented: “Todd Nelson is that rare breed of great producer and great chief executive. As long as I’ve known him, he has focused on making dynamic and authentic shows, while also making 3 Ball a place where producers could shine and take risks, and nurture their own growth in our business. We are delighted Todd is staying on at 3 Ball and we look forward to supporting his unique creativity and his leadership.”

Nelson added, “It’s hard to remember a time when 3 Ball wasn’t a major part of my life; as the business has evolved and changed, it’s been exciting and challenging to change with it. We created the original 3 Ball to be a family, and our family has grown tremendously over the last 14 years. I’m looking forward to this new chapter and grateful to get to continue doing great work with great colleagues and friends.”
