Jeffrey Silver

Jeffrey Silver produced Antoine Fuqua's Training Day, the hit police thriller for which Denzel Washington won the Academy Award for Best Actor, and for which AP13 star Ethan Hawke earned Academy Award and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations.

He has produced over two dozen feature films, both independently (as with AP13) and through his company, Outlaw Productions. Among his other credits as producer are the two blockbuster The Santa Clause movies, starring Tim Allen and directed by John Pasquin and Michael Lembeck, respectively; Renny Harlin's Mindhunters; Dennis Dugan's National Security; Griffin Dunne's Addicted to Love; Jeremy Leven's Don Juan DeMarco; Mike Binder's Indian Summer and Crossing the Bridge; and Stephen Herek's Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead.

Outlaw Productions' first feature was Steven Soderbergh's debut feature sex, lies and videotape, which won the top prize (the Palme d'Or) at the Cannes International Film Festival.

As producer of the classic series The Wonder Years, Mr. Silver earned an Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series.

He holds a degree in theater from Brandeis University, and began his career in New York before moving to Los Angeles.
