Why East Tennessee

RIVR Media is a production company based in East Tennessee. Why? East Tennessee is a great place to have a television, film and internet production company.

As one of the largest production communities in the country, we have significant creative talent and a large crew base. At the base of the Smoky Mountains, East Tennessee offers a varied topography, significant lakes and rivers and a temperate climate. A very business friendly local economy also offers a low cost of living, favorable tax structure, manageable housing costs and the cultural amenities endemic to a college town (the University of Tennessee is based in Knoxville).

Most importantly, we live in middle America with two thirds of the U.S. population within a day’s drive. We eat, sleep and create reality television programming that resonates with viewers nationwide, and we have been proud to do it for over 30 years.
