Fake Empire Productions is the production company that was formed in 2010 by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage to develop and produce television series and feature films. Their most notable productions include the series Gossip Girl (developed by Schwartz and Savage), Chuck (co-created by Schwartz and Chris Fedak), Hart of Dixie (created by Leila Gerstein and produced by Schwartz, Savage, and their producing partner Len Goldstein), The Carrie Diaries (developed by Amy B. Harris and produced by Schwartz and Savage), Dynasty (developed by Sallie Patrick, Schwartz, and Savage) and Marvel's Runaways (created for television by Schwartz and Savage). The company was formed to focus on television projects and produce films, with the intent of branching out into online series, music and books.[1] Schwartz formerly operated under the banner of College Hill Pictures, Inc., which folded in the making of Fake Empire.

Both the film and television divisions of the company are overseen by Lis Rowinski.
