Producer Jessica Petelle has many years’ experience in creating film, television and online content for advertising and entertainment. After graduating from Indiana University in 2000 with a dual degree in telecommunications and theater, Jessica immediately moved to Hollywood, where she quickly made her mark at Gracie Films working on ‘The Simpsons’. Looking for greater challenges, she expanded into independent filmmaking, founding Drexel Box Productions and helping create cult-horror classics like the movies ‘Joshua’ and ‘Lo’, and festival darling ‘Little Big Top’. She joined the hit Fox TV show ‘24,’ where she mentored under an award-winning creative team.  As ‘24’ came to an end, she made a new beginning as the Coordinating Producer on ‘Hawaii Five-0’ for CBS.   Her recent credit includes working in Toronto and Paris as Coordinating Producer for Atlantique Productions on the international series, TRANSPORTER, an action show for Cinemax that is slated to air early next year.  An on-going dream is to expand feature film production in her home state of Indiana.
