Hey, I'm Jerod!

Dallas, Texas

Jerod Couch is a 2x Emmy Winner (12x Nominee) & a proud alumnus of The University of Texas at Austin (Radio-TV-Film, 2007 & MBA, 2015). His career highlights consist of a five-year stint at ESPN including launching Longhorn Network. His productions have been featured in USA Today, Sports Illustrated and Yahoo! Sports.


Despite 15 years of experience creating content for companies such as ESPN, DirecTV, YMCA & many others, #WASHED was Jerod’s foray into long-form scripted content. Determined to create a series that could stand toe-to-toe with bigger budget productions, Jerod took a deliberate and creative approach in each phase of production. Jerod’s work can be found on his agency’s website TheCreativeCouch.TV.
