Robert Horowitz founded Juma Entertainment in June 2005 after a successful run as the head of International Management Group's U.S. television arm, Trans World International.
Horowitz conceived Juma Entertainment as a base of operations for his diverse interests in TV development, alternative media projects, live event production, and sports business consulting. The company’s broad spectrum of capabilities enables Horowitz and his team of producers and project managers to provide turn-‐key solutions for broadcast partners and corporate consulting clients.
Horowitz specializes in docu-‐soup, character-‐driven reality series, as well as dating and competition formats. He is the creator and executive producer of the hit variety game show THE SINGING BEE which aired on NBC and CMT.
Horowitz is also the executive producer of the annual CBS hit SUPER BOWL’S GREATEST COMMERCIALS, which he created over a decade ago. Horowitz has made connections with many advertisers in the Super Bowl ad space due to his work on the special, and therefore is often looked to for expert commentary on
Super Bowl commercials. The special is almost always the top-‐ranked show the night it airs and often it includes behind-‐the-‐scenes looks at the commercials that will air during the Super Bowl broadcast.
Recently, Horowitz and Juma Entertainment have found success in the building/renovation genre, producing two seasons of the hit VANILLA ICE GOES AMISH—as well as a spin-‐off, AMISH RENOGADES (both on DIY). Horowitz is also the Executive Producer of BARN HUNTERS for Great American Country.
