Rysher Entertainment is the owner of TV and film programming content, primarily distributed around the world by CBS Television Distribution and Paramount Pictures. Select rights are also distributed by Warner Bros., Universal, Lionsgate, Fox, Columbia Pictures, MGM and other entertainment distribution companies worldwide.

The company has its roots in Bing Crosby Productions ("BCP"). Its namesake, actor/singer Bing Crosby, founded BCP in 1949, and was best known for producing the sitcom Hogan's Heroes and the medical drama Ben Casey - in succeeding years, BCP was acquired by Cox Broadcasting.

In 1988, Cox incorporated Bing Crosby Productions into the Rysher corporation, which itself had been established as an independently owned company whose original sole product had been the distribution of George & Alana, which ran for one season in 1995.

Rysher's library, today distributed by CBS Television Distribution (CTD) and Paramount Pictures (for TV series and films, respectively), includes television and feature film classics such as Hogan's Heroes (whose partial rights are held by CBS), Ben Casey, and Walking Tall, as well as more recent programs and films including Nash Bridges (1999-2001 episodes are produced by Paramount Network Television), Highlander: The Series,
