Tom Lynch

Writer/Producer/CEO

Tom Lynch has been working as a creative, innovative television writer/producer for over three decades. During that time he has created, written, directed and produced some of the most successful television shows in the world for the youth-centered demographic. From live-action comedies, to animated musicals, to reality-based variety shows, to one hour dramas, Lynch has always worked to create inspiring content and he continues to do so today with the same passion and creativity with which he began his career.

In his first project, Lynch executive produced a music video marathon for Night Tracks, introducing audiences to a diverse playlist of music on TBS SuperStation on Friday and Saturday nights. The series ran 12 years.

Next, Lynch combined the best of his music experience with his unique ability to tap into kids’ interests. KIDS Incorporated, the first variety show for youngsters, was born—and so were the successful new careers of Jennifer Love Hewitt and Stacy Ferguson (Fergie of The Black Eyed Peas). The series ran 15 years.

Soon, Lynch was taking kids’ programming and bringing it into the mainstream, helping to make it the dynamic, highly competitive field it is today. The New York Times called him the creator of the “tween” genre.

His next landmark show was The Secret World of Alex Mack. The series was the first to feature a strong female role model as its lead character, and it was one of Nickelodeon’s first breakout hits.

Lynch has also worked internationally, as Creator and Executive Producer on the Emmy-nominated NBC series, Scout’s Safari, which was set and filmed on location in South Africa. In addition, he journeyed to China, where he served as Executive Producer on China’s first Nickelodeon’s Kids Choice Honors.

Continuing to push boundaries and expand the minds of his audience, Tom Lynch created and executive produced the four time GLADD-nominated series for The N, South of Nowhere. Over four seasons, the groundbreaking and innovative show explored issues of race, religion and sexuality as it followed the members of an Ohio family who move to Los Angeles.

Not to be confined to one form for too long, Lynch also ventured into the world of television animation by teaming up with Andre Benjamin, creating and executive producing the Emmy-winning Class of 3000 for Cartoon Network.

Lynch broke into the documentary film world with Piece of Mind, a film that took three years to make and focused on the lives and art of Los Angeles graffiti artists. The film had its first screening at the Durango Film Festival, and continued the festival circuit with the Newport Beach Film Festival and the LA United Film Festival.

Lynch then launched The Assistants on the N. The show follows the lives of four assistants as they try to make it in Hollywood.

Next, Nickelodeon premiered Lynch’s action-comedy series The Troop, about a group of talented high school kids who are forced to battle monsters in order to protect their school and classmates.

The following Tom Lynch Company project for Nickelodeon was Bucket & Skinner’s Epic Adventures. The buddy comedy about two surfing best friends at a Southern California high school has created buzz with industry insiders.

In a divergence from the youth culture space, Lynch has written one hour drama pilots for NBC, FX, CBS, ABC, and MTV, among other networks. He recently developed and executive produced a two hour movie for Spike TV and MGM entitled Black Souls, set in the underground Irish mob world of South Boston, where the top dog mob boss has just gone missing, and everyone is fighting to gain control of the world of sex, guns, and murder. The picture was directed by Walter Hill.

Tom Lynch is a prolific, award winning, and in-demand Writer/Producer who continues to produce with a style that is both relevant and innovative. He is CEO of the Tom Lynch Company, where his development and productions emanate from. Lynch recently released web series S.H.R.I.E.K. with Hasbro Studios and the Hub Network. He is currently writing and producing one hour drama Shipping Crazy for ABC Family and half hour sitcom Make it Pop! for Nickelodeon, as well as one hour drama projects for Spike. After beginning his career with Candid Camera, Lynch has now returned to his reality roots with projects at HLN. Lynch is also in talks with a myriad of other networks, both here in the United States and overseas.

No matter what the medium, the Tom Lynch Company is one of the few independent production companies still inspired and driven by the signature voice of its creator. Lynch’s shows have been nominated and won Emmy awards, GLAAD Awards, Humanitas Prize, Kid’s Choice Awards, Teen Choice Awards, WGA Awards, DGA Awards, Image Awards, Gemini Awards, Leo Awards and Young Artists Awards. With 30 series, 10 TV movies, 2 features, a digital series, and more to come, Lynch continues to lead the industry in new directions and take audiences to places they’ve never been before, illuminating the magic of the human experience.
