Breck Eisner, son of Michael Eisner , formerly CEO of Walt Disney, who just happens to be a movie director in his own right, has announced that his two story, single-family home in the highly desirable suburb of Hancock Park in Los Angeles, is now on the market, with an asking price of $11.8 million.

Eisner, who only bought the property in 2012 from another aspiring film director, and ex-Friends star David Schwimmer is looking to make a $3 million profit on the property. He paid just $8.8 million for it in June 2012, after Schwimmer had reportedly reduced his original asking price of $10.7 million, when the house first went on the market in November 2011.

Breck Eisner’s Hancock Park property comes with nine bedrooms, five fireplaces, six full and one half bathrooms, a wood-paneled library, a butler’s area, two powder rooms and a screening room, all sitting on lot covering just over an acre of land. There is even a detached guest house, a swimming pool with its own spa, a three-car garage, and beautifully manicured gardens.


Eisner is the the son of Michael Eisner, formerly CEO of the Walt Disney Company, and Jane Breckenridge, and he adopted the nickname Breck when he began his career in the movie industry. Breck is of course a shortened version of his mother’s family name.

Breck’s father is Jewish while his mother is of mixed Scottish and Swedish descent.

He graduated from Georgetown University with a degree in History and English, later going on to study at the University of Southern California, where he received a Master’s degree in directing at the school for film study.

After graduation, Eisner began his professional career directing television commercials, working with such high profile companies as Budweiser. His advertisement for Powersurge created a buzz when it aired during an interval in the 1997 Super Bowl.

Breck Eisner also gained considerable credit when two public service commercials he created for the California Department of Health Services, “ Funeral” and “Gala Event” were selected as Best Spots in back-to-back issues of Adweek.

Eisner’s success directing commercials led to further success in the world of television and soon after moving into film direction, with his debut coming in 2003 with the crime thriller “ Thoughtcrimes” which unfortunately never made it past video library distribution.

After further such setbacks, Eisner spent more time gaining experience till he was chosen to direct a remake of The Crazies, which finally enjoyed considerable critical and box office success.

Now the younger Eisner’s services have become increasingly in demand with a number of projects in the pipeline, which should keep him busy for the foreseeable future.
