“UNCHAINED” was produced by TAUBLIEB Films and Crusty Demons. Executive Producers Mark Hall, Susan Cooper, Sam Pontrelli, Mitch Covington, Jeff Bowler, Dana Nicholson, Nat McCormick, Brian O’Shea and Brolin.  Co-Producer/Co-Director Jon Freeman.  Co-Producer Stacy Transou.  Consulting Producer Eric Johnson. Associate Producers Marc Levine, Chris Ackerman, Brian Meehan and Doug Parsons.  Director of Photography Chris Zamoscianyk.  Lead editor Carl Cramer.  Produced in conjunction with Monster Energy.

“I’m grateful to so many people who made this possible, especially the stars of the film, who let us tell their stories.  And also to the team at Monster Energy who supported this effort and the sport of freestyle motocross itself right there from the beginning, thanks to Monster’s Mark Hall,” said Taublieb, for whom this is his second Emmy.  “I’m also in debt to my wife and partner, Susan Cooper, who provides the backbone for TAUBLIEB Films, and also to everyone at ESPN and the X Games who took a rebel sport and helped build it into a truly global phenomenon.  And have to add that the gravitas and passion Josh Brolin brought as narrator added a layer of impact to the film as he’s genuinely passionate about the riders and the sport.”

“UNCHAINED: The Untold Story of Freestyle Motocross” is available on NETFLIX, iTunes and Amazon Prime.
