About Jerry Kolber
Jerry Kolber is the co-creator and Showrunner of National Geographic’s #1 series, BRAIN GAMES, for which he received a Prime Time Emmy Nomination. Kolber and Atomic are a frequent collaborator with icon Pharrell Williams, having created and produced BRAINCHILD (Netflix) with Pharrell, as well as two upcoming documentaries.
Kolber is the co-creator and host of the world’s most popular 3x weekly kids educational podcast Who Smarted?, which had three million downloads in its first year.
Kolber’s other creator and Showrunner credits include Inked (A&E), Confessions of a Matchmaker (A&E), GE in the Wild (with Mythbusters’ Adam Savage), and the space documentary 14 Minutes from Earth (Netflix).
He always knew that one day he would bring his love of entertainment and desire to transform one-size-fits-all education together and Brain Games provided the first of many opportunities to show what was possible. Since 2010 Kolber, his team at Atomic, and their amazing partners have been responsible for some of the most successful and beloved edutainment programming in the world. Kolber is a long-time resident of Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
