Jerry Bruckheimer

One of the most successful producers of all time, Jerry Bruckheimer is a filmmaker and now a television mogul who loves telling a story and delivers a visual feast unmistakably his own.

Marked by his signature lighting bolt, Bruckheimer has produced over 30 feature films including Pirates of the Caribbean, Black Hawk Down, Pearl Harbor, Remember the Titans, Armageddon, The Rock, Crimson Tide, Beverly Hills Cop, Flashdance and Top Gun. Bruckheimer brought the power of the lightning bolt to television and currently has five shows on the air with C.S.I.: Crime Scene Investigation (the #1 show on television in 2003), C.S.I. Miami (the #1 new drama of 2002), Without A Trace (the #2 new drama of 2002), Cold Case (the #1 new drama of 2003) and the two time Emmy Award-winning The Amazing Race.

Bruckheimer received the ShoWest Producer of the Year Award in 1998 and in 2000 the Producers Guild honored him with the David O. Selznick Award for Lifetime Achievement. In 2003, the editors of Entertainment Weekly named Bruckheimer the #1 most-powerful person in Hollywood. His projects have been honored with 35 Academy Award nominations, five Oscars, eight Grammy Award nominations, five Grammys, 23 Golden Globe nominations, four Golden Globes, 30 Emmy Award nominations, six Emmys, eight People's Choice nominations, four People's Choice Awards, and numerous MTV Awards, including one for Best Picture of the Decade.

To date Bruckheimer's films have launched the careers of many actors and directors and have produced more than $13 billion in box office, video, television and recording sales.
