David A. Hurwitz

Celebrating a fun and exciting career that has spanned over 30 years and

covered everything from late-night talk on the original Arsenio Hall Show to helping launch successful franchises like Access Hollywood, Comedy Central’s The Man Show, NBC's Fear Factor, Nickelodeon’s Brain-Surge, as well as Ellen's Game Of Games.


The Emmy-nominated showrunner has earned a reputation for

executing the spectacular by putting ordinary people in extraordinary

situations on mega shows like Fear Factor, American Gladiators, Stars Earn Stripes, and many more.


While with NBCUniversal Television, he was entrusted with some of

the network’s biggest and most innovative launches such as The Million Second Quiz with Ryan Seacrest.  MSQ was the first-ever show of its

kind to allow viewers to participate live in real time via their smart

phone app.


Hurwitz also developed and helmed the live variety show Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris as well as the genre-bending scripted hybrid after-show, What Just Happened!!? with Fred Savage.  WJH is a comical, tongue-in-cheek after show about a sci-fi event show that doesn’t exist.  


Hurwitz also produced the comedic physical game show Don't for ABC with Ryan Reynolds’ Maximum Effort, which premiered in 2020.


In addition to being one of the most sought-after showrunners in his field,

Hurwitz also produces content under his own shingle, Bill's Market & Television Productions.  The company has developed and produced hundreds of hours of programming across the television landscape.


With a diverse slate and background that has included everything from LIVE VARIETY and over 10 years in TALK to GAME SHOWS and STUNT COMPETITION SERIES, along with partnerships that include Mark Burnett, Dick Wolf, Ashton Kutcher, Ryan Seacrest and Ellen DeGeneres, Hurwitz has established a brand known for making quality unique content that speaks to a large demo.


In 2017,  David made what he describes as the best hire of his career by partnering with his Emmy-nominated wife, Gelila Asres Hurwitz to produce alongside him.   Gelila’s credits include creating and producing the successful syndicated series Hip Hop Harry and Dance 360, as well as sitcoms like Under One Roof, Second Time Around, and The Tony Rock Project.​

Together, they combine her scripted and Hip Hop background with his non-scripted experience with the goal of finding and developing more projects like their BET series Black Card Revoked, where they're able to share a unique point of view and provide more opportunities, both in front of and behind the camera, for people of color.
