In January 2018, twelve media professionals from across the country descended upon Miami to participate in NATPE's inaugural Emerging Producers Workshop. The workshop consisted of creation and development sessions hosted by television production veteran, Scott Sternberg. The goal of these sessions was to conceive and develop an exciting and unique format which was to be funded for further development.
The concepts created during these sessions inspired the creation of a new media development and production team called 13Brains. Currently, the team has three shows in active development.
