What We Produce


With an Emmy, as well as another Emmy nomination, our team is passionate about developing television for both broadcast and web networks. We currently have a slate of 10 shows (reality and scripted) in various stages of development ranging from treatment to pitch-tape available for agent representation.

This content is not on our website, but can be requested privately. If you are interested in our slate, please reach out to James Thayer at james@seekfirstproductions.com


Seek First Productions has created over 1000 commercial productions for both small businesses and fortune 500 companies including Amazon, Budweiser, Hampton Inn, Coca Cola, HCA, and Ace Hardware.

We love to fuse storylines with visual effects in commercial productions. The majority of VFX can be produced in-house, saving a ton of money for our clients; this really separates us from other production houses.

What People Have To Say

"James Thayer was an integral team player during the Property Brothers: Buying + Selling shoot in Nashville in 2017.  As Assistant Director for all 6 episodes, he managed the crew and talent with speed, efficiency and complete professionalism.  James oversaw all aspects of running the shoot days including making sure that we stayed on time and on budget.    I would highly recommend James...considering all that he’s done to run his own productions and production company combined with his work ethic and passion."

Laura Reiter, Series Producer - Property Brothers: Buying & Selling

"James is one of the smartest and driven producers I know. I’ve seen him help create amazing vision and lead teams, while working under tight budgets and time frames. He takes the time to create beautiful content by hiring and casting his vision though great communication to his team. I truly value his skills as a master negotiator, I’ve seen this time and time again when dealing with legal, talent, and state government. He is one of the most honest people in this business and will always put the team and production before his own ego or needs. I highly recommend James as part of any top level producing team in television, indie films, or new media."

Jeremiah Bennett, Producers Guild of America - Honey Boo Boo, Milledgeville Film Festival

"Seek First is a first class production team that cares both about its stakeholders and the communities that it engages. The company's not-for-profit 54 Film Fest has promoted and encouraged spontaneous creativity in both the established Knoxville area and the emerging Murfreesboro market. The festival's expansion to Wilmington, NC and other southeastern cities should positively impact movie making for years to come. I am grateful to work with the Seek First team."

Ben Jones - 54 Film Fest City Leader, Murfreesboro
