CEO at V10 Entertainment

John Stevens got his start as an intern on Late Show With David Letterman before inevitably making his transition into reality television as a segment producer. After years in the trenches he founded ZOO Productions, an independent production company where he created Girls Behaving Badly, which launched the careers of Ken Jeong and Chelsea Handler, Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? with Jeff Foxworthy, and produced more than 100 episodes of MTV’s Spring Break. ZOO also produced Buckwild, Family Game Night, How’d You Get So Rich?!, Slednecks, and Grits. Stevens sold ZOO Productions to All3 Media in 2010 before founding Hangar 56 Media which currently produces Shop Class for Disney+, Beverly Hills Brat on YouTube, Perfect Road for History, and Flippin Dirty Bird on Facebook. Stevens launched Venture 10 in May 2019.
