Prior to joining Ovation TV, Woodward served as Vice President, Programming and Production at TVGN and was responsible for the network’s re-launch in 2004.

Previously, Woodward was an executive producer at E! Entertainment Television, for domestic, international and online series and specials. Among the shows he worked on were Wild On (one of E!’s top-rated series), Behind the Scenes, Extreme Close Up, Search Party, and E! News specials from the Cannes, Venice and Sundance Film Festivals, among many others. Woodward began his career as a Creative Director in the Marketing division at Columbia Pictures. He later launched his own production company, Scott Woodward Productions, producing and distributing EPKs (electronic press kits) for Columbia Pictures, Universal, Paramount, Disney and DeLaurentis Entertainment Group.
While attending Ithaca College, Woodward landed an internship at BBC in London, where he worked on the documentary series Arena Art and Design. Shortly after graduating, he worked on the PBS series Live From Lincoln Center, the first live stereo simulcast of a music series from the famed New York venue.
Scott’s free time is dedicated to his five children, Charlie the dog, Payton the cat and the fabulous Birgit. They are indeed today’s Brady Bunch.
