Stephen David (Executive Producer)

  • Located in the heart of Manhattan, Stephen David Entertainment (SDE) has emerged as a leader in high-end television production, specializing in docudrama, documentary and non-fiction, as well as selected scripted series.

    Prior to creating SDE, David enjoyed a long and successful career in television development and production. After graduating from the University of Texas, David established himself as a screenwriter, selling scripts to world-renowned studios including Warner Brothers, New Line Cinema, MGM and Revolution and working with acclaimed directors such as Barry Levinson and Ron Howard. As his focus shifted from film to television, he joined the original creative team behind NBC’s The Apprentice. In addition to developing the series, David was instrumental in devising the show’s sponsorship model. After this, he worked on several shows, including the hit CBS reality competition series Survivor.

    After launching Stephen David Entertainment in February of 2010, David ushered in an entirely new TV genre – the docudrama. Their first docudrama mini-series, The Men Who Built America, was nominated for five Emmy™ awards. David’s success repeated again the following year with his company’s latest docudrama, The World Wars. The historical event mini-series – narrated by Jeremy Renner and introduced by President Barack Obama – received three Emmy™ award nominations and broke ratings records around the world. In early 2015, SDE premiered its first fully scripted mini-series, Sons of Liberty.
