MJF alums produce docuseries for History Channel

Three MJF alumni are behind a newscaster, "The American Farm," which will premiere at 10 p.m. Thursday, April 4, on the History Channel.

Jeff Conroy, '94 and executive producer of the series, worked with two other Miami alumni; associate producer Grace Dahlman and field associate producer Nathan Hengstebeck, both from the class of 2016. All three are connected with Miami's department of Media, Journalism & Film.

The series was produced by BoBCat Studios, a multi-platform production company in Los Angeles co-founded by Conroy. He is an Emmy award-winning producer of programs such as Discovery Channel's "Deadliest Catch."

The eight-part series is an honest tale of risk, reward, hard work and innovation, centered on the lives of five family farms across America, according to a History Channel description of the series that was shot on location across the country.

The program presents an up-close look at one full year of family farming, told through an unprecedented year on the ground, capturing breathtaking visuals, private moments and personal interviews.
