America Now

Non-Fiction Series

Television series for ITV Studios. During my time in the development group at ITV Studios, I helped create a format called America Now for distributor Raycom Media. When the format sold into syndication, ITV asked me to produce it. Services include development, writing, directing and producing.

Can you take a traditional news magazine format and merge it with docu-follow? Turns out, you can.

I was just wrapping a pilot for SyFy when ITV called to tell me America Now had been picked up, with Leeza Gibbons and Bill Rancic as hosts. Having worked on development of the series, I was excited to go make it. We ended up producing over 300 episodes in first run syndication through four seasons, earning some Emmy nominations along the way.
