Mark Roberts, a film and television producer born and raised in Southern California,
is a 20 year veteran of the Entertainment industry.
 
Roberts got his start in 1985, while working as a Universal Studios tour guide. His first break came when he was offered a job in the casting department of the film “Three Amigos” by director John Landis. Once the film was complete Roberts formed his own casting company and began casting extras and small roles for film and television. For the next six years Roberts worked on over 100 film and television projects for major studios and networks including Warner Brothers, NBC, CBS and HBO. Known for his attention to detail, Roberts forged strong industry contacts that continue to serve him today.
 
In 1992, Roberts sold his casting business to pursue a career as a producer. Roberts’ ability to develop ideas and attach key pieces of talent matched well with another of his emerging skills, raising equity financing for films. After producing his first film “Plump Fiction” with partner Lorena David, Roberts focused his energy on persuading financial partners to invest in unique independent films. Over the next four years Roberts arranged financing and produced four films including “Poor White Trash” starring Sean Young, Jaime Pressley and William Devane and “Eastside” with Mario Lopez and Efren Figueroa.

Roberts went on to produce numerous films including “Extreme Dating” (Warner Brothers) starring Jaime Lynn Sigler, Devon  Sawa, “Strangers with Candy” based on the critically acclaimed series which aired on Comedy Central with David Letterman and Worldwide Pants, “Danika” Starring Marissa Tomei and Craig Bierko, “Water & Power” written and directed by Richard Montoya (Sundance Film Lab) and  “The Cover Up” starring Eliza Dushku, Gabe Mann and John Savage (Lifetime).
 
Roberts continues to seek out and work with talented young filmmakers and is proud to be known as a producer that takes movies from concept to distribution. Roberts is currently set to produce “The Johnny Porche Story” for Dreamworks written by Kario Salem.
