For socially conscious members of the modern world, Bridge the Gap TV takes viewers on an international adventure, walking in the shoes of people halfway around the world. Unlike traditional travel documentaries that are strictly educational or reality television that is strictly entertaining- BTG marries the two- creating hi-stakes scenarios on film that captivate us and dissolve perceived walls between “self” and “other”. We offer new, enriching perspectives on regions of the world normally portrayed in a negative light in the media, and inspire viewers to Bridge the Gap between people and cultures. We have created programs alongside organizations like Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, Clif Bar, Osprey Packs, and the Jane Goodall Institute.
Our team includes Emmy winning producers, videographers and editors whose credits range from BBC, to Discovery Channel, to Travel Channel. We’ve produced programs in Uganda, Haiti, the Pine Ridge Reservation, Abu Dhabi, Tanzania and Mongolia. Chris Bashinelli, aka “Bash”, is the company’s Executive Producer and Host of the flagship series. To find out more about Chris Click Here

“Exchanges like those we see in ‘Bridge the Gap’, which at first seem to be from worlds apart, in fact serve to make use realize how interconnected we all are.”
