David McMahon first worked for Florentine Films as an assistant editor on Jazz. Following stints at PBS's public affairs series, Frontline, and National Geographic Television and Film, McMahon returned to Florentine in 2003 as co-producer of a seven-part series on the Second World War. The War, broadcast on PBS in 2007, explores the experiences of ordinary citizens from four American towns during the greatest conflict of the twentieth century. McMahon is also co-producer of The National Parks: America's Best Idea, a six-part series on the national parks and the people who helped bring them into being, premiering on PBS in 2009.

At present, he is producer and writer of the latest installment of Baseball, a nine-part series originally broadcast on PBS in 1994. The Tenth Inning will look back at the past fifteen years of America's national pastime both on and off the field.

McMahon was raised in Clarence, New York and graduated from the University of Michigan in 1998. He lives in Brooklyn, New York, with his wife, Sarah.
