About Us

In September of 2003, John A. Palumbo became Executive Producer of "America's Dumbest Criminals" after purchasing all television rights, trademarks, copyrights, from the Entheos Group based in Nashville, Tennessee.

The show was originally conceived and syndicated in 1996. It was a hit immediately as it led the way for what is better known today as "reality TV". Ahead of its time, and a common household name, almost everyone has seen and remembers some of the hilarious and outrageous videos from this popular TV show.

"America's Dumbest Criminals" racked up high ratings in its first four seasons in the United States and in syndicated airings in more than 30 countries, according to New York-based Lacey Entertainment, which markets and distributes the show worldwide.
