The Emmy-winning director has joined the roster in the UK and US for commercials, music videos, and branded content, his first commercial representation.
This is Hehir’s first commercial representation.
Jason Hehir was born and bred in Boston, Massachusetts, and went on to graduate from Williams College. For more than a decade he has been making award-winning television and documentary films, earning a total of seven Emmy awards as a director and producer. Most recently, his 2020 ESPN/Netflix series The Last Dance chronicled Michael Jordan’s incredible NBA career and the dynasty of the Chicago Bulls. It is the most-watched documentary in ESPN history.
Hehir’s documentary Andre The Giant was the most-watched film in HBO Sports history and delves into the wrestling legend’s career as well as the personal struggles he faced. Hehir has two well known 30 For 30 documentaries, The '85 Bears, which was nominated for Outstanding Long-Form Documentary at the National Sports Emmys, and The Fab Five, which is among the highest-rated documentaries in the library.
