From executive producer at Radio City Music Hall to president of Mandalay Television and executive producer on every Mandalay series, show business veteran Scott Sanders has built an exceptional career in entertainment.
At Mandalay, Sanders oversees all creative development and production for the company's programs, currently including "Young Americans," "Oh, Baby!" on Lifetime and "Rude Awakening" on Showtime.
A native of St. Petersburg, FL, he majored in advertising at the University of Florida, while breaking into entertainment as a local radio deejay and working briefly at United Artists Records. Upon graduation, he landed a job as talent coordinator at Radio City Music Hall in New York, rocketing to vice president of Entertainment in a year and executive producer in three years. During his 15-year tenure at Radio City, Sanders transformed the theater from a financially troubled New York landmark to one of the country's most successful venues and live entertainment production companies.
He has produced more than 1,000 live shows and events, including engagements for Bette Midler, Diana Ross, Pee Wee Herman, Harry Connick Jr. and Whitney Houston; a Presidential gala for President Clinton; the World Cup closing ceremonies and the Super Bowl XXVII half-time show starring Michael Jackson. In addition, Sanders produced the AIDS Project Los Angeles' Commitment to Life at the Universal Amphitheater.
In association with Columbia TriStar Television, his Mandalay Television has made five pilots, all of which garnered series commitments, including the 1998 series "Cupid" and "Mercy Point." Sanders' partners at Mandalay are Peter Guber, Joe Voci and Paul Schaefer.
