Jack Binder

Jack Binder has been producing quality feature films and television with his brother, writer/director/actor Mike Binder, since 1985, beginning with HBO's The Detroit Comedy Jam, and culminating with Reign Over Me (Columbia Pictures), starring Adam Sandler and Don Cheadle.

After joining up to produce live and filmed comedy programming with then-stand-up comic and writer Mike Binder, Jack moved to Los Angeles and worked his way through the production ranks via HBO Original Programming Series and Comedy Specials and feature films with Michael Phillips Productions and Mercury/Douglas Films.

Joining back up with his brother Mike, Jack worked on Coupe de Ville (Universal), directed by Joe Roth and written by Mike Binder. He also co-produced both Crossing The Bridge (Touchstone) and Indian Summer (Touchstone), both written and directed by Mike Binder.

The two then formed Sunlight Productions in order to make independent comedy films, including The Sex Monster (starring Mike Binder and Mariel Hemingway), Londinium (starring Colin Firth, Mariel Hemingway, Mike Binder, Irene Jacob, and Stephen Fry), and The Search For John Gissing (starring Alan Rickman, Janeane Garofalo, Mike Binder, Alan Corduner, and Juliet Stevenson).

Sunlight Productions continued television and filmmaking with Jack producing the HBO television series The Mind of The Married Man as well as the feature films The Upside of Anger (New Line Cinema), starring Joan Allen, Kevin Costner, Mike Binder, Erika Christensen, Keri Russell, Evan Rachel Wood, and Alicia Witt, and Man About Town (Lionsgate Films), starring Ben Affleck, Rebecca Romijn, John Cleese, Mike Binder, Gena Gershon, Kal Penn and Adam Goldberg. All were written and directed by Mike Binder.

Many projects are underway in development.
