Executive VP of Production and Development

Scott Weinstock has worked with many of the world’s media giants and major league sports throughout his career. After winning a Sports Emmy in 1990, he was recruited by the NBA and was instrumental in launching “NBA Inside Stuff,” the longest running sports entertainment Y.A. show of its kind. Following this, Scott took a two-year hiatus and joined MTV as a Senior Producer for Series and Specials (including two legendary Spring Break’s). When Scott returned to the NBA as VP, Executive Creative Director, he supervised the league’s advertising and marketing campaigns while also helming much of the NBA’s internal and external creative branding efforts. In 2005, Scott moved to the NHL to create and manage their branding and advertising campaigns. He initiated and executed the highly successful, league-wide cross promotion with Warner Brothers for the motion picture “300.” In early 2016, Scott turned to screenwriting and independent production. He produced and directed the comedy special “Carie Karavas: Men, Flaws and Menopause,” and was an Executive Producer and Head Writer for the 10 episode series “Inside the Black Box,” for Crackle. Screenwriting credits include the Y.A. adventure rom-com “The Will,” and the historical dramedy “The Bronx Bomber.”
