In 2009, Redtail won an Emmy for the documentary Bloody Thursday, which told the history of the violent struggle to form the Longshoreman's Union during the Great Depression.
Current projects include the hit series Brew Dogs for NBC Universal's Esquire Network, now entering its third season, and Dogs of War for A&E, which Cotton and Burke Executive Produce along with Custom Productions' Steve Stockman,
Redtail co-created Discovery’s hit The Devils Ride with Custom, establishing the look and feel of one of television's grittiest reality series and producing the show open and graphics packages in house. Cotton and Burke also recently collaborated with Marc Summers Productions and Custom Productions to produce the Food Network primetime series $24 in 24, with Cotton directing several episodes and Burke running post-production.
