Scott Brothers Global is the international entertainment production company founded by brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott. The company has its origins in Dividian Production Group, an independent film company that the twins, along with their older brother JD, founded in 2002. Dividian Production Group became Scott Brothers Entertainment in 2010, before coming under the umbrella of Scott Brothers Global in 2017.
Brothers JD, Jonathan, and Drew Scott founded Dividian Production Group in 2002 as an independent film company. In 2010, Dividian Production Group became Scott Brothers Entertainment, and in 2013, they shifted the focus from film to television and digital platforms. As part of the restructuring, the brothers brought on Katie Ruttan Daigle to the position of Vice President of Development and Production in the company's Factual Entertainment division. She had worked with the brothers before, having produced the first episode of Property Brothers.
Scott Brothers Global was officially incorporated in March 2017 as an umbrella company of their various brands. Headquarters were moved from Las Vegas to Nashville in 2019, a more central location to licensees and the company's partners. Its corporate office remains in Las Vegas, while the television production company operates out of Toronto. In 2018, David Dembroski became president of the company. In that position, he possesses fiscal oversight and brand management responsibility for all areas of Scott Brothers Global, including "brand licensing, endorsement, entertainment, book publishing and the television production businesses." Laura Aldrich is Executive Vice President of Licensing. Michael Kim, based in Los Angeles, is the senior vice president of business development. Alina Duviner, in Toronto, serves as Vice President of Communications. Amy Melen, operating from New York, is the Vice President of Production Design.
