Behind the scenes was an all-star team of creatives working tirelessly to pull together a performance for the ages. The Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show was executive produced by Emmy winner Jesse Collins (BET Awards(R), Grammy(R) Awards, Oscars(R)), Emmy winning preeminent entertainment company Roc Nation, produced by DPS, led by Emmy winner Dave Meyers and directed by acclaimed multi-award nominee Hamish Hamilton (who has directed the Halftime Show since 2010).
