Stuart Coxe, President
Stuart has been a writer, director, journalist and executive for more than 3 decades. He started his career in documentaries and traveled in Iraq and Kuwait immediately after the first Gulf War for a film on UN peacekeeping. He then joined the CBC and worked in a variety of roles as a producer and executive producer in CBC News. During his tenure he launched some of the most successful original news programming for the network, including the show “CBC News: Sunday” and worked on the creation of several new shows for CBC News Network including “Power and Politics” and “The Lang/O’Leary Exchange.” He and his teams have won multiple awards for coverage of 9/11, indigenous health crises, several federal elections and investigations into reporting of the second Iraq war.
After leaving CBC News, Stuart launched CBC’s first factual entertainment show, “Dragons’ Den”, and ran it for four years. It was, and still is, the most successful show of its kind in Canadian history. Stuart then helped launch “Shark Tank” on ABC with Mark Burnett.
Setting up his own production company in 2008 Stuart has produced dozens of series and feature documentaries. Highlights include original formats like “Next Great Prime Minister” (produced in more than 4 territories including France and Germany), “Make the Politician Work” (New Zealand), and “Funderdome” (ABC and multiple foreign territories).
