MY BACKGROUND

 

 

 

In addition to a lengthy career as a Literary Manager, Literary Agent and Development Executive,  I

produced a Christmas comedy movie, BATTLE OF THE BULBS, for the Hallmark Movie Channel which

aired multiple times in December, 2010. The movie starred Daniel Stern and Matt Frewer and received 

great numbers.  The network aired it again several times during the 2011,  2012  and 2013 holidays, and the 

movie premiered in Europe on the BBC in December of 2012.

 

Formerly a development executive at Universal and Paramount, I subsequently owned and operated

Stephanie Rogers & Associates, a literary agency, representing writers, directors and producers for twenty

years.  In 2000, the agency was re-structured to a management and film consulting firm which is still doing 

business to this day.

Early in my career, I was a development executive at Paramount and part of a team that developed and

sold to the networks the TV series; HAPPY DAYS, LONGSTREET and FUNNY FACE.  Also at

Paramount, I worked on the productions of such theatrical films as GOODBYE COLUMBUS, PAINT

YOUR WAGON and ON A CLEAR DAY; and, I assisted Peter Bart, VP Feature Film Development,

where my first assignment was to read the galleys and validate the feature film merits of Mario Puzo’s

novel, THE GODFATHER.

 

                                                                                

 

Following my years at Paramount, I became a program executive at Universal TV, where I supervised

MURDERS (3-hour movie pilot for KOJAK), APPLAUSE (musical special), KOJAK (series), SONS

AND DAUGHTERS (series) as well as a number of other movies, series, pilot films and a game show.
