About Us

Ted Bourne
Executive Producer
After studying film at the University of Chicago and Temple University, and having made a handful of short festival films, Bourne got his start in documentary television as an editor, cutting shows for Nat Geo, TLC, and Discovery. But it was on A&E’s critically acclaimed real-life cop show The First 48 that Bourne made his mark, moving up from editor to showrunner in only three years. With a laser-like focus on sculpting stories for emotion and drama, Bourne helped shape First 48 into one of the most watched real-life investigation series on television, supervising more than a hundred episodes and developing the spin-off series After the First 48.

After joining the team at Left/Right in 2012, Bourne was able to merge his filmmaking and directing skills with his prowess in the edit room in genres outside of true crime. He has applied his multi-pronged storytelling chops across a variety of projects in varying genres, ranging from the raucous nightlife series 3AM (Showtime) to the amateur archaeology series Search for the Lost Giants (History) to the docu-drama historical hybrid Roanoke: Search for the Lost Colony (History).

In 2016, Bourne turned his focus to the political world as one of the showrunners on the weekly fast-turnaround series The Circus: Inside the Greatest Political Show on Earth (Showtime), where he helped figured out a way to make a polished weekly series on a frighteningly fast editorial schedule.

A recent transplant from Brooklyn to Montclair, NJ, Bourne is adjusting to suburban life. When not engaging in ill-fated DIY projects around the house, you might find him concocting dramatic games of hide and seek with his two daughters.
