BIOGRAPHY
Kent Bateman’s career spans 40 years in theatre, television and film as actor, singer, producer, director and writer. In 1971, he directed the original Grizzly Adams for Sun Classic Pictures which went on to become a successful TV series. Following that project, he wrote, directed and produced the feature film Snowman, starring William Shatner and Mel Torme. Through the balance of the 70’s and 80’s, he moved to Los Angeles where he produced and directed network television for NBC and CBS, including Real People, That’s Incredible, That’s My Line, Family Ties, and The Hogan Family. He also developed feature projects for 20th Century Fox. Simultaneously, he served as personal manager to the stuntman and actor Dar Robinson, as well as Justine and Jason Bateman. In 1984, he directed Jason and Justine in their professional stage debut, a revival of Broadway Playwright Roger O. Hirson’s Journey To the Day. He subsequently formed Theatre III Group in Los Angeles. Among the 13 productions he directed, the world premier of Invitation From The Asylum went on to garner 3 Drama-Logue Awards, including one for Outstanding Direction. In the late 80’s he produced Teen Wolf Too for Atlantic Films and Breaking the Rules for Miramax.
Moving to Park City in 1991, he created Actors Repertory Theatre. During 1994, the company performed at Wolf Mountain Resort (now known as The Canyons) in Park City. It was here that he produced and directed a second production of Bench At The Edge, by Luigi Jannuzzi, the first being at his Theatre III in Los Angeles. A feature version was co-written, produced and directed by Mr. Bateman in 1998. During that same period, he wrote, directed and produced two television pilots, Kruiser’s Outrage and Mistakes Anonymous. In 1998-99, he developed and produced two television specials, Undercover Stings I & II for the Discovery/Learning Channel.
He has written two novels and numerous screenplays as well as a soon to be published book of poems. As a leading actor, he will soon be seen in the release of an independent film, PROPENSITY.
As Senior Executive Producer for Mandalay Branded Entertainment from 2001-2003, he developed Interactive TV programming. He has taught his methodology for Branded Entertainment, ©VPOV at New York University and widely in Los Angeles. He presented his unique programming approach in Asia at a Singapore Media Convention in 2001. In August of 2002, he taught his methodology in Lisbon Portugal to an invited group of artists and television producers and executives from all over Europe. His work was subsequently published in multiple languages. During the year of 2004-2005, he completed an extended commission in Park City, Utah working with Sundance affiliated filmmakers and producers to create a repertory company with a mandate to develop programming for next generation distribution platforms.
As a resident of New York City, Mr. Bateman continues to produce motion pictures and develop TV programming as well as conduct seminars and on-line intensives with his story and character building methodologies, ©VPOV and ©AFL. References upon request.
