About Us

Ted Bourne
Co-Executive Producer
 
Ted's addiction to nonfiction television started innocently enough – with an “experimental cinema” class at the University of Chicago.  The habit grew at Temple University, where Ted made several films that won awards and played at festivals while he worked his way towards an MFA.  But his lust for larger audiences could not be sated with art-house films alone, and soon Ted was sliding down the slippery slope into reality TV as an editor on shows for Discovery, History, A&E, and others.  Before he knew it, he was show-running A&E’s hit series The First 48, where he supervised well over 100 episodes and also launched a successful spin-off, After the First 48.  Since coming to terms with his addiction, Ted has produced pilots and presentations for A&E, BET, and Discovery ID, and was a showrunner on the Nat Geo series Border Wars.

Ted has finally found a home among like-minded addicts at Left/Right, where he has a hand in much of the observational- and crime-and-justice programming that the company produces, including a pair of very cool (and very different) co-productions with legendary Law & Order creator/executive producer Dick Wolf.
