As Executive Producer of E! True Hollywood Story, I had the pleasure of working with David Stein on twelve episodes of the network’s flagship series.  David is a first-rate producer whose talent, enthusiasm, and creativity carry over to every phase of the production process. 

David consistently crafts provocative and entertaining programs.  His two-hour THS:  Hugh Hefner - Girlfriends, Wives and Centerfolds was the highest rated show in two years.  David also produced THS: Mary Tyler Moore (also a two hour episode) which won the Prism Award for best biography. 

David's engaging personality and sense of humor make people open up to him – on and off camera, in and out of the office.  He has a knack for getting the most revealing secrets out of the likes of Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, Donald Trump, Hugh Hefner, and Pamela Anderson.

David's sense of art direction makes the footage look as good as it sounds.  No matter what the subject, he finds innovative visuals to complement the story.  A probing writer and storyteller, David also has a keen talent for pacing. 

Finally, David is a team player and a leader both at the same time.  He’s a great guy and I recommend him highly.

All the best,

A few years ago I had the pleasure of hiring David Stein as a story producer on the second season of SPLIT ENDS (Style network).  When I hire, I always look for staff members that I feel have great attitudes. Someone that I wouldn't mind being around for 15 hour days.  I don’t always get fortunate in that area, but with David, I was right on target.

When many of the other producers where following the format that was put in place from the first season, David brought his own unique vision to the shows that he oversaw.  David’s shows always stood up… he combined humor and heart in each of his episodes.

I know that the phrase “team player” is used a lot to describe people in our business, but David is truly just that. He bonded with all of the editors he worked with (which isn't easy to do!) and at times became the group’s “cheerleader” when we were working against the clock.

The following season, my plan was to put him in the Field.  Unfortunately, he took another job before we began our third season.

I so look forward to hiring him in the near future for any project that I am working on. He is a true gift to any staff.

Respectfully,

Glenn Meehan

David Stein worked as a Field Producer for me on House Hunters and House Hunters International. 

During that time, David proved to be an extremely capable and well-liked member our staff.  The Field Producer position was a demanding one that required him to be organized, flexible, and have the ability to think on his feet and problem solve in the field – wherever in the world he was at any given time!

David also knows story and is a strong writer, which I think is the hallmark of a good Field Producer.  To that end, he gets strong interview bites in the field and knows what b-roll elements to shoot to back those bites up.   Additionally, he was very well liked -- I received many e-mails from homeowners and realtors worldwide, telling me how much they enjoyed working with him.

Finally, David is a real team player.  When he wasn't on the road, he was the first to step up and volunteer to help out with anything that needed to be done in the office.

If you need additional information, please don’t hesitate to call me at 818-521-4812.

Sincerely,

Peter Field
Supervising Producer
