In 2010 Savage and creative partner Josh Schwartz created Fake Empire Productions, a production company producing their TV series, films and music.[1]

Career[edit]

Savage graduated from the University of Toronto in 1990 with a B.A. in English and Cinema Studies, then from the University of Iowa in 1993 with an M.A. in Film History and Theory. While writing her PhD dissertation for the University of Iowa she moved to Los Angeles, and in 1995 was offered a position at Drew Barrymore's production company Flower Films.[2] Here she dabbled in scriptwriting, handling production rewrites for Charlie's Angels, and met the film's director McG. The two later formed production company Wonderland Sound and Vision in 2001.

In September 2016, Savage was announced as an executive producer for the then-upcoming Dynasty reboot series.[3][4]
