Television production[edit]

Segan made his foray into television in 2001 with The Dead Zone based on Stephen King's novel of the same name. Executive produced by Segan and Michael Piller, the series debuted on June 16, 2002, on the USA Network.[1] The series, produced over a 7 year production cycle is now syndicated globally.[2]

Following The Dead Zone, Segan, Michael Piller and Shawn Piller executive-produced Wildfire.[3] This series, which debuted on ABC Family, was the network’s first-ever original scripted series. Wildfire ended after four seasons but during its lengthy tenure it left an indelible mark on audiences. In fact, audiences petitioned for the show to remain on the air by sending truckloads of hay, 500 cast iron horseshoes, apples, rope, and 1,000 pounds of carrots to ABC Family.[4]

In 2007, Segan and Shawn Piller executive-produced the ABC Family series, Greek.[5] In a review released soon after the premiere of the show, The New York Times claimed that Greek "captures the spirit of the hedge-fund age like nothing else."[6] Greek ran for a 6-season cable cycle and brought the network a new audience demographic that it had not attracted before.[7]

Currently,[when?] Segan serves as an Executive-Producer on Syfy’s one hour drama series Haven[8] which stars Emily Rose (ER). The series was the first to be co-production between NBC Universal Global Networks, Syfy, and Shaw Media. During its first season, Haven, based on the novella The Colorado Kid by Stephen King, was called “A must-see show”[9] by Entertainment Weekly. Syfy renewed Haven for a third season of 13 episodes, which will begin airing later this[which?] year.[10]

Film production[edit]

Segan just[when?] wrapped production on the Scott Lew-penned and Shawn Piller-directed Sexy Evil Genius starring Seth Green, Katee Sackhoff, Michelle Trachtenberg and Harold Perrineau.[11]

Segan’s other feature film credits include 2007's Bickford Shmeckler's Cool Ideas, a college-set comedy starring Patrick Fugit and Olivia Wilde;[12] New Line Cinema's Bones,[13] a hip-hop horror film starring Snoop Dogg; New Line's The Bachelor, starring Chris O’Donnell and Renée Zellweger;[14] the controversial cult hit The Boondock Saints,[15] and its follow-up The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, starring Willem Dafoe; Showtime’s Emmy-nominated film, Hendrix, based on the life of Jimi Hendrix;[16] the Eric Schaeffer comedy Wirey Spindell;[17] Universal Studios' thriller Judgment Night, starring Emilio Estevez, Cuba Gooding Jr., Denis Leary and Stephen Dorff;[18] MGM’s action-drama Blown Away with Jeff Bridges and Tommy Lee Jones; and the HBO movie Crossworlds.[19]
