High Noon Entertainment Celebrates Two Decades of Bringing ‘Heart’ to Reality TV

High Noon Entertainment Celebrates Two Decades of Bringing ‘Heart’ to Reality TV
Name your unscripted reality TV production company High Noon, and inevitably the question comes up: Is founder and CEO Jim Berger a Gary Cooper fan?

“Nope,” says Berger, who explains: Just as his 20-year-old Denver-based company was about to launch its first show, “Work in Progress,” execs learned that Food Network scheduled it at noon. “We needed a name,” he continues. “So I said, ‘We’re in the west, it’s about to air at noon, let’s call it High Noon.’ My friend designed the logo in about 20 minutes and it hasn’t changed since.”

Hitting the bullseye on the fly like that takes a rare combination of industry insight, gut instinct, and sheer luck — and High Noon Entertainment, which Berger runs with co-founders Duke Hartman (COO) and Sonny Hutchison (chief administrative officer) — has a surfeit of all three.

Shelton sat in front of his dressing room mirror staring at himself as “Star Wars” stormtroopers marched onstage to take over the Nickelodeon show. The host grabbed his blaster and exchanged fire with the troopers – interrupted by last year’s host Nick Jonas shouting “keep it down” — before driving on the Kca stage in a chair modeled after his seating on “The Voice.”
