Jerry Bruckheimer Films Inc. (JBF) is an American independent film production company of Jerry Bruckheimer, formed in 1995, after cutting his ties with film producer Don Simpson, before his subsequent death in 1996.[1][2] It produced hits such as the Pirates of the Caribbean film series.

The production logo of company shows a tree without leaves, on which leaves appear when struck by lightning.[3]


Longtime producer Jerry Bruckheimer co-founded Don Simpson/Jerry Bruckheimer Films in 1983 with Don Simpson; it was initially an affiliate production company of Paramount Pictures.[4] Don Simpson/Jerry Bruckheimer Films produced such hits as (among others) the franchises Beverly Hills Cop and Bad Boys. After breaking up an alliance with Paramount Pictures, he had moved to The Walt Disney Studios in 1991, and the production company produced such hits for Disney as Crimson Tide (1995) and The Rock (1996).[5]

Jerry Bruckheimer Films was founded in 1995[2] by Bruckheimer, after he cut ties with former producing partner Don Simpson;[1] its first movie under that branding was Simon West's action thriller movie Con Air (1997), starring Nicolas Cage. The company is currently headquartered in Santa Monica, California. He often produces movies with Walt Disney Pictures and Touchstone Pictures. In 2013, the company had shifted ties from Disney to Paramount after 22 years working at the studio.[6] The company subsequently went independent in 2020.[7]

The company also has a television production division Jerry Bruckheimer Television (also Jerry Bruckheimer TV or JBTV), which is best known for producing (among others) the TV franchise CSI and Netflix's urban fantasy superhero TV series Lucifer.[8] In June 2016, the division became an independent outfit, ending a 15-year exclusive deal with Warner Bros. Television Studios.[9] In July 2017, the division signed a contract with CBS Television Studios.[10]
