Mark Gordon made a seamless transition from producing films like “Saving Private Ryan” and “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” to producing well-made television shows spanning from “Army Wives” and “Criminal Minds” to “Designated Survivor” and “Quantico.” Many of his series have run well beyond the 100-episode mark.

Since selling EOne a 51% stake in the Mark Gordon Company in early 2015, Gordon has not settled down, as evidence by his having six series airing during the 2016-2017 season.

Despite his success in television, Gordon has not forsaken films. In 2013 he announced plans to produce a fourth “Chronicles of Narnia” film, and is one of the producers behind an all-star remake of “Murder on the Orient Express.”
