Biography
Simon Bowler is a seasoned producer, director and writer of almost 700 hours of film, broadcast and cable television programming.

After graduating with a degree in Film and TV Production from the University of Westminster in London, Simon produced at the BBC and BBC World Service Television. He then produced, wrote and directed feature documentaries for Channel 4, The World Bank, and Friends of the Earth. He came to the United States and produced the acclaimed mockumentary feature film ‘Man of the Year’. He also worked as an entertainment radio journalist in Los Angeles, interviewing hundreds of actors and directors. Simon then worked in development with producers George Hickenlooper (Hearts of Darkness), Michael Phillips (Close Encounters), and Derek Gibson (Platoon, The Last Emperor).

He returned to television and produced, directed and wrote multiple shows for ABC, PBS, Discovery, Oxygen, Bravo, Channel 4 (UK), Fox, and Cisco Systems, Global Green, and Friends of the Earth.

He has shot on locations around America, across Europe, in the mountains of Nepal, the jungles of Bangladesh, the inner cities of India, the wilds of Borneo, and throughout his home country of Britain. He has produced hard-hitting investigative documentary features about deforestation, the corruption of international aid money, and the gangs of Los Angeles.

He has written numerous award-winning screenplays, and recently his play, The Briefing, was chosen for the William Inge Theater Festival. He is currently developing several full-length plays and a major television drama series.
