In 2000 Jefferies moved to Los Angeles where he founded and subsequently sold the B2B media group Line 56.
|Residence||Los Angeles, California|
In 2002 he moved into the world of feature films, beginning with soccer trilogy Goal!. Jefferies co-wrote the screenplay for the first Goal! with contributions from veteran British writers Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais. The story of a young illegal immigrant, rising from poverty to become one of the world's greatest players was released by Disney and has been shown in 38 countries worldwide. Goal! grossed $27.6m at the box office.
In September 2004 Jefferies, together with Stuart Ford, fronted a bid backed by the Kraft family, to purchase Liverpool Football Club. The bid would have valued the club at approximately £200m. In 2005 the club was subsequently purchased in a deal by Tom Hicks and George Gillett which valued the club at £218.9m.
In October 2010, as part of a fans' campaign against the ownership, Jefferies conceived and directed a short film entitled 'Dear Mr Hicks' which was released virally via YouTube. The Independent newspaper praised the video saying: "True to the city's capacity to create something out of adversity, a wonderfully inventive viral film, Dear Mr Hicks, has been published online to make it clear where he ought to go. The fans' view can be summarised thus: away, and soon".
In 2011 Jefferies re-launched Milkshake Films.
