Over the course of his long career, George W. Perkins has produced everything from sensationalistic cable dramas ("The Amy Fisher Story") to teen comedies ("Teen Wolf"). Perkins started out in the '80s as assistant director on films like "Joysticks," about a group of video game-obsessed teens who fight to save their local video arcade, and soon landed a job as co-producer on the surprise hit film "Teen Wolf," starring Michael J.Fox as the title shapeshifter. Along with lead actor John Candy, Perkins helped produce the mystery comedy "Who's Harry Crumb?," about a bumbling but brilliant detective (Candy) who inadvertently cracks a kidnapping case. By the end of the '90s Perkins had transitioned to television production; he produced "The Amy Fisher Story," about the infamous Long Island teenager (played by Drew Barrymore) who attempted to murder her lover's wife, and worked on the switched-at-birth drama "Someone Else's Child" and the short-lived sitcom "A Brand New Life." In 2001 he helped produce the award-winning TV biopic "James Dean," with a post-"Freaks and Geeks" James Franco as the tortured teen idol, and later served on the team behind "Live from Baghdad," a critically acclaimed HBO movie about the tensions among a group of Gulf War journalists. Perkins has also produced over 120 episodes of the primetime drama "Desperate Housewives" and worked on the supernatural thriller "Thoughtcrimes."
