Mandt Bros. Productions is a Los Angeles-based production company founded by brothers Neil and Michael Mandt. The brothers are ten-time Emmy Award winners and partners in the Los Angeles based creative studio. [1]. The company was formed in 2001 and has a wealth of experience delivering award-winning content to television, film, internet, immersive and mobile audiences. In addition to creating traditional content, the brothers have built and operated multiple turn-key production facilities and are experts in virtual and augmented reality content creation.

On the feature film side, the Mandt Brothers were Co-producers of Walt Disney Picture’s Million Dollar Arm starring Jon Hamm and Alan Arkin.

Rahman. In 2018, A24 and DirecTV partnered to release the brother's latest movie, The Last Movie Star.

The cast is rounded out with stellar performances from Chevy Chase, Ariel Winter, Clark Duke and Ellar Coltrane. The brother's 2007 indie film, Last Stop for Paul, collected a top prize at more than 50 film festivals around the world and was later developed into a 19-episode television series for Showtime, which was also produced by the Brothers.
