 Dana Brunetti Biography

Dana Brunetti is an American film producer and social networking entrepreneur. He is the president of Trigger Street Productions.

Brunetti grew up in Covington, Virginia, but attended secondary school at Alleghany County High School. Brunetti left Covington in 1992 when he joined the U.S. Coast Guard. During his enlistment, Brunetti moved to New York. Later, he met actor Kevin Spacey through a chance introduction from a mutual friend while Brunetti was working at a startup digital wireless network company.

Shortly after that first introduction, Spacey hired Brunetti as his executive assistant. Brunetti worked with Spacey through several feature films, including 1999's "American Beauty" and 2001's "The Shipping News."

In 2001, Brunetti transformed Spacey's Trigger Street Productions website into a platform for young filmmakers. The site enabled users worldwide to submit screenplays and short films for feedback from other members. It was one of the first large-scale projects of its type. The transformation embodied Spacey's philosophy to, "send the elevator down," for creative and talented artists simply needing a chance in Hollywood. TriggerStreet.com was relaunched in 2002 as an early social media site, hosting member profiles, providing member ratings of submitted work and interactive forums. It steadily gained users resulting in it being named one of the top 50 best websites of 2004 by Time Magazine.

Soon after the launch of the new TriggerStreet.com, Brunetti embarked on his own successful producing career. In 2002, he co-produced the documentaries "Uncle Frank" and "America Rebuilds: A Year At Ground Zero" through Trigger Street. In 2004, Spacey promoted Brunetti to President of Trigger Street productions.

Brunetti's first feature film producing credit was as co-producer on 2004's "Beyond the Sea." His first full feature credit was "Mini's First Time." He later produced the 2006 film "The Sasquatch Dumpling Gang" and the Emmy-nominated "Bernard and Doris."

Brunetti, a "Star Wars" fan himself, eagerly produced the "Star Wars" comedy "Fanboys." Brunetti's first major success was 2008's "21," a film based on Ben Mezrich's New York Times bestselling book "Bringing Down The House."

In early 2009, Brunetti teamed with Mezrich on an adaption of "The Accidental Billionaires," which told the story of the founding of Facebook. The screenplay adaptation was written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by David Fincher. In 2011, "The Social Network" was nominated for eight Oscars and won three. It also won the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture.

Dana Brunetti and Kevin Spacey's Trigger Street Productions released their groundbreaking series, "House of Cards," in early 2013. This TV series was heralded as the first of many new series of its type that will change the future of television forever. The entire 13 episode series was released on Netflix at the same time. This unique release catered perfectly to the vast majority of Netflix users that enjoy watching episodes back to back instead of the traditional one-week break in between continuation of the story in the series. Kevin Spacey starred in this American political drama along with talent such as Robin Wright, Kate Mara, Corey Stoll, Michael Kelly, Sakina Jaffrey, Kristen Connolly and Constance Zimmer.

Reed Hastings, Netflix CEO, commented on the overwhelmingly positive reaction to the release of "House of Cards" by saying, "[it's] a very nice confirmation of the premise that over the next couple of years we can build something very important."

Brunetti produced "Captain Phillips" starring Tom Hanks, a biopic of Captain Richard Phillips who was taken hostage by Somali Pirates during the Maersk Alabama hijacking in 2009. He is also producing the film adaptation of "50 Shades of Grey."
