SCOTT EDWARD SMITH

 

Scott has a multi-experience career that includes production work on Broadway (Chicago, Pippin, Equus, Raisin, The Royal Family... and some that closed very quickly, but why go there?)  He has served as a production manager for the Los Angeles Music Center, Old Globe Theater/San Diego, and National Tours.  He also did dinner theater at the "State Theater of Kentucky's Pioneer Playhouse"... but again, why go there?

 

Scott has been a Story Editor for motion picture companies, developed for television and feature films at 20th Century Fox, Universal, and Warner Bros.  Scott created and developed Backstory with Dr. G, Elevation Summit for Global Change, The Dr. Howard Gluss Radio Show, and the television and film consulting firm, KeyLight.  

 

Scott also sang and danced in the longest running Las Vegas musical stage show ever: Hallelujah, Hollywood! (full disclosure: Scott sang and danced only for a brief period of time, not the entire 30 year run). All of this is true, just checking to see if anyone is really reading.

 

Director/Producer/Writer, Don Roos (Opposite of Sex, Boys on the Side, Love Field, Bounce) has described Scott's resume as "very scary".

 

Scott is Co-Author of the book, Reel People: Finding Ourselves in the Movies, a psychological examination of personality disorders throughout the history of films.  He is currently at work on a non-fiction book that has nothing to do with the film business.

 

Scott adapted for the stage and directed Ethan Mordden's iconic gay novels, "Buddies", which had its world premier in Los Angeles, California.

 

Scott has adapted several novels into screenplays for major motion picture companies. Those projects are not listed on this website, because Scott does not own the rights to the underlying material - but you are free to ask him about his experience in "development hell" or read those scripts, if you are interested.  

Following "That Woman!", Scott is currently at work on a One-Woman play about the life of Marilyn Monroe.

 

Scott's first writing assignment was for the 1987 - 1991 television series, 21 Jumpstreet. Scott often stayed up late taking notes from this new upstart cast member, Johnny Depp.  

 

Which probably explains everything.
