Career[edit]

Adler joined Objective Productions in 2007.

The Cube[edit]

Adler and Objective Productions first approached Channel 4 in 2008 with the format. It was made into a non-televised pilot by the channel. Channel 4 eventually decided not to commission the show because it would have been too expensive. In February 2009, ITV purchased the rights to the show and filming began during April 2009 at Wembley's Fountain Studios. The show has now won three BAFTA awards.

He also produced an American pilot of The Cube.

Reflex[edit]

The format had originally been piloted by Channel 4 in April 2011, who also opted not to order The Cube following a 2008 pilot.[2] A non-broadcast pilot was filmed with Jake Humphrey as host in July 2012 at MediaCityUK in Salford.[3] After being commissioned by the BBC, Reflex was filmed at Wembley's Fountain Studios during April 2013.[4]

The show began airing on 11 January 2014, but received a poor reception from critics and viewers.
