Mark Burnett

Television producer

Producer Mark Burnett is still on a reality roll.

Three years after he ushered in the reality TV tidal wave, Burnett rides into 2004 with the same white-hot buzz surrounding several would-be franchises.

CBS’ “Survivor” is hotter than ever, having just wrapped a seventh season.

“The Apprentice” recently premiered on NBC, centered on 16 entrepreneurs vying to win a yearlong job as Donald Trump’s right-hand person. And waiting in the wings is “Casino,” a behind-the-scenes look at the reopening of Las Vegas resort the Golden Nugget.

Burnett also has revved up a second season of “The Restaurant,” as well as an all-star edition of “Survivor,” which gets a prized post-Super Bowl preem.

Crix have pinpointed Burnett’s success in his keen casting of real-life but archetypal characters and blending of the everyday with the extraordinary. Despite the contrived circumstances, Burnett captures ordinary folk being tested and revealed with dramatic flair.

Burnett has stepped up his small-screen development in the world of fiction.

At the WB, he has set up a half-hour skein based on his own real-life experience as a military commando-turned-nanny. Series deals with a 22-year-old relocating to America after having served in the elite British Army Parachute Regiment in the Falklands War.
