Chairman / CEO

Even veteran mega-producers weren’t immune to effects of the pandemic, as Bruckheimer discovered when season 33 of his CBS reality-competition series “The Amazing Race” was forced to halt production. Then, the release of “Top Gun: Maverick,” which teams him with star Tom Cruise for the first time in 30 years, had its June 2020 release pushed back to July 2021. But he’s stayed busy with a development slate crowded with ’80s and ’90s throwback projects, including a Showtime pilot for an “American Gigolo” series starring Jon Bernthal, a third “National Treasure” for Disney and “Beverly Hills Cop 4” for Netflix.

In February 2021, his first-look deal with Paramount will expire and enable him to produce films with other studios.
