CEO & Executive Producer

STEVE KATZ

sk_monitorWith hundreds of hours of compelling television produced…thousands of captivating stories told…from shooting on the run to being the Show Runner…award-winning producer Steve Katz’s career has literally spanned the globe.  In his days as a foreign correspondent, Steve covered wars, terrorism, international diplomacy…even a royal wedding and the hunt for the Loch Ness Monster. He went on to become a TV Network News Bureau Chief before joining Fox’s iconic true crime series, America’s Most Wanted, where he rose from Supervising Producer to Co-Executive Producer and Show Runner. When he moved into the top position at AMW, he was given the mission of revitalizing an “old” show. By creating new franchise segments, emphasizing better storytelling, character development and writing, and updating the look and feel of the program, he helped increase the weekly audience by an average one million viewers over the course of a single year. While doing so, he expanded the scope of the show internationally, producing episodes from London, Kiev, Phnom Penh, Lyon, Belize, Rio de Janeiro, St. Thomas and several  other overseas locations.  After America’s Most Wanted, Steve’s career took him into strategic communications, where he spent several years as a senior executive with one of the nation’s fastest-growing agencies, driving the video  storytelling for campaigns for a variety of Fortune 500 organizations.   Now, with Maximum Sunshine Productions, his own development and production operation, Steve continues to create new and intriguing non-fiction television, as well as help corporate clients tell their stories.
