JERK (stylized as JEЯK) is a Robloxian production company formerly owned by Gavent Networks to handle productions created for services and platforms outside of the Gavent Networks suite of television channels. This has included productions and co-productions for other Robloxian television networks, and more recently, Robloxiwood film productions as well. JERK also serves as Gavent Networks' distribution arm for its television programming. The company began as Gavent&Company on November 11, 2014; it was renamed and refocused as JERK on April 29, 2016. On October 18, 2016, JERK was spun off from Gavent Networks, during production of their debut film, due to Gavent Networks wanting to focus on ROBLOX TV. However, ownership remained the same at the time.

On March 31, 2017, AGavent announced his departure from Robloxian media. As part of his departure, JERK was acquired by rTV Networks; it was initially held through its rTV Networks Gavent division which owned most of the former Gavent Networks, prior to the integration of GN's television properties into rTV Networks proper; then owned directly by rTV Networks once rTVN Gavent was dissolved. On December 2, 2017, rTV Networks sold JERK to Lava Lamp Entertainment, a move which rTVN owner BenzBot states will "help the network better focus on its vibrant Robloxian television properties".

Logos and branding Edit

JERK End Credits

JERK End Credits

The original Gavent&Company logo didn't have an end credit logo, rather a static card. When the studio changed their name to JERK on April 29, 2016, a brand new logo came out on April 30. In the early hours of May 1, 2016, AGavent debuted the JERK end credit logo, which is meant to look similar to an old VHS tape being played, along with a CRT television turning off. The logo begins with the proper spelling of the word "Jerk", in all capital letters. The footage looks grainy, as if being played on an old VHS player. The screen slightly glitches, causing the R to turn counter-clockwise and turn purple. Another glitch, after the R remains purple and off-center for a split second, the R simply just becomes reversed. After that, the logo flips off, as if somebody turned off an old television.
