True to its name, rock-solid Stone & Company is among the most trusted and prolific American independent television production companies. It’s where networks turn when they need a show from the best auspices, and with the finest production values.
Scott Stone, the driving force behind the company, has been in the reality business for over 20 years. A consummate collaborator and creator, Stone is a hands-on, get-it-done perfectionist. He is one of the most respected and admired producers in American television.
Stone’s company reflects his values and programming vision. He heads up a team of dedicated professionals in Program Development, Business Affairs, Casting, Production, and Finance. Headquartered on the fabled Hollywood Center Studios lot, Stone has trained and promoted some of the most talented programmers in the business. Everyone who works for and with the Company enjoys a fast-paced but family-like atmosphere.
This may explain why Stone has worked for just about every broadcast and cable network, and in every unscripted genre: docusoap, elimination, hidden camera, kids, talk, game, makeover, design, sketch comedy, court, and travel.
The company is always busy with multiple concurrent productions. Recent series include a new season of “The Mole,” ABC’s Emmy-winning international competition series, “NYC Prep,” “Top Design,” “Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style,” and “First Class All the Way” for Bravo, Nickelodeon's hit game show called “BrainSurge,” “First Time Design” for HGTV, and the second season of the hit Logo series, “Gimme Sugar” about lesbian nightlife.
Other Stone & Co series include Travel Channel’s “1,000 Places to See Before You Die” based on the longtime bestseller; Logo’s “Curl Girls” series about lesbian surfers and “The Ride” documentary; Style Network’s romance series “I Propose”; “Ivana Young Man” starring Ivana Trump (Fox/Oxygen), “Hi-Jinks” (Nick), “American Dream Derby” (GSN); and “America’s Ugliest” (TLC).
Prior to Stone & Company, Stone ran Stone Stanley Entertainment, whose long-running productions, in addition to “The Mole,” include “The Man Show” (Comedy Central), “Fame” (NBC), “Legends of the Hidden Temple” (Nick), “Popstars” (WB), “The Joe Schmo Show” (Spike), “Shop ‘til You Drop” (Lifetime/Family Channel/PAX) and “Loveline” (MTV). He also created the Emmy-winning kids’ series “Fun House” and produced the feature, “Children of the Corn II.”
Before going independent, as Senior Vice President of Lorimar-Telepictures’ First-Run Television, Stone supervised “The People’s Court,” “Love Connection,” “Thundercats,” “Gumby,” and the “Let’s Make a Deal” revival, among other hit shows.
