Charlie Corwin hits ‘Big’ time

He teams with Schumacher for TV, film

It’s been a good summer so far for producer Charlie Corwin. He has teamed with Ben Silverman and helmer Joel Schumacher to develop a series based on Susanna Moore’s “The Big Girls,” to be written by Adam Mazer. Schumacher is in discussions to direct.

Corwin’s Original Media shingle is also developing a feature thriller with Schumacher.

The prolific producer has 13 shows on the air or about to preem, most in the “docu-soap” genre. He’s awaiting word from History on a third-season renewal for “Swamp People” following a strong sophomore sesh in which the show averaged 3.9 million total viewers, up 26% over the first season.

“The type of reality television I do is, for the most part, about identifying worlds that I feel are exciting and have not been exposed fully and finding the characters in those worlds that best epitomize them,” Corwin said.

Swamp People” is a prime example of a show that fits that template. The show follows alligator hunters, turtle farmers and other residents of Louisiana’s Atchafalaya Basin, whose way of life is completely foreign to most viewers. “In a lot of ways, they’re the greenest people around,” Corwin said.
