Award-winning producer and director Andrew Schotz serves as head of development of prolific production company Anvil 1893.
Having joined the company in 2016, Schotz produced the renowned Kids Say The Darndest Things starring Tiffany Haddish for CBS (he also worked on the series’ previous run on ABC) and developed the primetime original series Money Court for CNBC, starring Kevin O’Leary (aka Shark Tank’s Mr. Wonderful) and currently in pre-production on season two. His credits also include CBS’s primetime hidden camera show, I Get That A Lot, MTV’s dating show Time’s Up and Travel Channel’s America’s Secret Swimming Holes.
Schotz’s career launched in 2012 when he directed, produced, and edited the viral video “Grandmas Watch the Kardashian Sex Tape,” which garnered more than 6 million views and was nominated for Viral Video of the Year. The viral sensation caught the eyes of millions, including Oprah Winfrey, which ultimately led to The Golden Sisters TV series that aired on OWN.
He has produced nine national commercial spots and continues producing and directing online content, creating multi-viral videos (which made Huffington Post’s “The Funniest Moments of 2014") .
