SCOTT A. STONE
Executive Producer for “Legends Of The Hidden Temple”
Scott A. Stone serves as Executive Producer for “Legends Of The Hidden Temple” for The CW.
Stone began his television career at 19 while still an undergraduate at USC film school working for Academy Award-nominated documentarian, Charles Braverman. His first job was finding financing for and producing the documentary “Nixon: Checkers to Watergate.” He went on to work on Braverman’s popular Showtime cable series “The Big Laugh Off” and “What’s Up America?”
Just one year out of USC, Stone started his first production company, SamStone Productions, selling it a year later to start-up TV syndicator, Telepictures, where he rose in the ranks as a studio executive launching such shows as “The People’s Court,” “Love Connection,” “Gumby” and “Thundercats.” After rising to Senior Vice President, Stone followed his entrepreneurial spirit once again, leaving what was then Lorimar-Telepictures to produce two series he developed, the Emmy-winning children’s series “Fun House,” and the anthology horror series “Freddy’s Nightmares,” based on the “Nightmare on Elm Street” films.
Stone, the founder and driving force behind Stone & Company Entertainment, has created and produced more than fifty television series and specials airing on nearly every network/program service and in every country in the world. In addition to “Legends of the Hidden Temple,” he is also executive producing his first two podcasts, Fear NOT!, based on Dr. Barry Glassner’s national bestselling book, The Culture of Fear, and “We Got This?!,” an original family game show. Stone’s recent productions include his Emmy-nominated Showtime sports documentary series “A Season With” and multiple award-winning Nickelodeon series “Paradise Run.”
Known for hit series like “The Mole,” “The Man Show,” “The Joe Schmo Show,” “Loveline,” “Legends of the Hidden Temple,” “Popstars,” “Shop ‘til You Drop,” and “BrainSurge,” Stone has stayed in continuous production running his three successive companies: Stone Television, Inc. (1988-1990), Stone Stanley Entertainment (1990-2004), and Stone & Company Entertainment (2004 - present), creating nearly 2,500 episodes of television and specials making him one of the most prolific producers in television.
A keen eye for talent, Stone has introduced America to Anderson Cooper (“The Mole”), Jimmy Kimmel (“The Man Show”), Adam Carolla & Dr. Drew Pinsky (“Loveline”), Kristen Wigg (“Joe Schmo”), Nicole Scherzinger & Josh Henderson (“Pop Stars”) and Greg Kinnear (“College Mad House”), to name a few. Other series created and produced by Stone include: “Top Design,” “NYC Prep,” “Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style,” “First Class All the Way,” “1,000 Places to See Before You Die,” “I Propose,” “Curl Girls” and “Gimme Sugar.” Stone also produced the feature film “Children of the Corn 2,” the first release by Dimension Films.
Stone proudly moonlights as an adjunct professor at his alma mater, the USC School of Cinematic Arts, Co-President of Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills, and dad to his two teenage sons.
Stone has served on numerous boards including: The Alumni Advisory Counsel of the USC School of Cinematic Arts, Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills, The USC Casden Institute for the Study of the Jewish Role in American Life, The USC Alumni Association Board of Governors, and Sigma Alpha Mu Fraternity. He credits his partner, artist Gary Frederick Brown, and their two sons with helping to keep him (in)sane.
