Steve Rotfeld Productions was started in 1986 by Steve Rotfeld after working for his father for five years on sports-documentary series Greatest Sports Legends. Initially working out of the second level of his home, Rotfeld soon teamed with 44 Blue Productions on Bob Uecker's Wacky World of Sports. With ESPN's The Lighter Side of Sports, his staff outgrew his home. In the mid-1990s, SRP branched out into E/I programming with Wild About Animals and Awesome Adventures as that genre was left to the smaller producers. In 2008, Steve Rotfeld established The WorkShop with SRP producer Tom Farrell.
