Paul Guyot


Sponsored by Friend of the Festival

Paul Guyot loves dogs (and all animals) and has written and produced more than 200 hours of television. His work includes the JJ Abrams-created series "Felicity," the Emmy-winning "Judging Amy" and "Leverage" winner of back-to-back People’s Choice Awards.

He served as showrunner on the TNT hit series "The Librarians." He served as the co-executive producer for "NCIS: New Orleans"—at the time the eighth most watched series in the world.

He has written pilots for multiple networks and studios including "The Black 22s"—based on the true story of the first all African American squad of detectives in St. Louis which sold in a fierce bidding war between four networks. The series died in development hell, but Guyot retains all rights and is currently writing the feature film version.

Guyot has written feature films which have grossed almost half a billion dollars worldwide, including the Warner Brothers feature "Geostorm" starring Gerard Butler and Andy Garcia, but don’t hold it against him.

He is the author of "Kill the Dog: The First Book on Screenwriting to Tell You the Truth," available in print, ebook and audio wherever books are sold.

Guyot attended the University of Arizona, loves golf and cycling in Tucson and is in search of the perfect old fashioned.
