"I worked with Ron on several successful original series and big formats when I was a network executive for 13 years. Ron is passionate about every project he works on and is so talented in heightening the entertainment value of each show. These days, we collaborate on projects as co-producers and I'm continuously wowed by Ron's writing abilities and his creativity in developing new show concepts & formats. To top it off, he's a decent person with integrity ...and big belly laughs."
