Beresford-Redman matriculated from Pascack Hills High School in Bergen County, New Jersey, and subsequently graduated from New College of Florida in Sarasota, Florida.
His involvement in television started in 2003, when he produced an episode of the television series “The Restaurant”. Later that year he served as field producer of the television series documentary called “Profiles from the Front Line”, a good start to his net worth.
The following year Beresford-Redman was the co-creator and subsequent producer of the hit TV series “Pimp My Ride”, which was picked up by MTV, and hosted by rapper Xzibit, portraying car owners who want their old or damaged cars to undergo a complete makeover by the show’s team of specialists. Producing a show which gained an extremely wide audience in a quite short period of time, and which became one of MTV’s most followed franchises spawning several spinoffs, significantly added to Beresford-Redman’s net worth.
Around the same time, the producer began working on another major franchise, the American version of the hit reality television competition “Survivor”. Filmed in the Amazon jungle and the Marquesas Islands in the South Pacific, the show portrays contestants split into tribes, facing various challenges, surviving a range of elements and providing their own necessities, such as shelter, food, water and fire, for 39 days. The winner of the show, titled Sole Survivor, receives a cash prize of $1 million. The show, picked up by CBS, has enjoyed an astonishing popularity with audiences. Serving as executive producer for 33 episodes of the Emmy-nominated “Survivor”, Beresford-Redman has been nominated for three Emmy Awards himself. The show has greatly contributed to his popularity and to his wealth as well.
He has also served as a co-executive producer for the television series “The Contender”, and two episodes of the series “Crash Course”. His last project was the 2010 series “Breakthrough with Tony Robbins”.
Aside from Beresford-Redman’s professional credits, this is, however, not the only thing he is known for. In early 2010, Beresford-Redman’s wife Monica Burdos was found murdered at the Moon Palace resort, where the couple had been staying during their vacation in Cancun, Mexico. Her body was found in a sewer close to their hotel. Some of the hotel’s guests claimed to have heard the couple arguing that day while other witnesses stated that they saw the producer’s arms and neck covered with scratches. As the investigation didn’t offer any clear insights into the murder, Beresford-Redman was questioned by police as a person of interest in his wife’s death and was ordered not to leave the country while the investigation lasted. However, he chose to illegally leave Mexico and go back to USA, which caused Mexican authorities to issue an arrest warrant for him, initiating his extradition to Mexico. Although Beresford-Redman maintained his innocence, he was eventually arrested in L.A. and a US court upheld his extradition in 2011. The following year he was sent to Mexico, waiting for his verdict in a Cancun jail until 2015, when he was convicted of murdering his wife, and sentenced to twelve years in prison. Although prosecutors have claimed that Beresford-Redman had plenty of motives to murder his wife, such as to continue having an affair he had reportedly broken off before the couple’s trip to Cancun, to obtain the custody of his children and to collect insurance money, the defense, on the other side, has claimed that there is no evidence that leads to him, and will appeal the case. The prosecution will likely appeal the leniency of the sentence.
In his personal life, Beresford-Redman married Monica Burdos in 1999, and they had two children, who now live with Beresford-Redman’s parents.
