Dick Clark Productions (stylized as dick clark productions by the company) is an entertainment production company founded by entertainer Dick Clark. Since its inception in 1957, the company has produced a number of television shows, television specials and televised movies. Such programs include American Bandstand, Where The Action Is, TV Bloopers & Practical Jokes, Camp Midnite, and the NBC series American Dreams (which includes classic footage from American Bandstand).
The name of the company dated back to, at latest, 1964, when Dick Clark's public relations manager, Henry Rogers of Rogers & Cowan, suggested naming his production company after himself, so he can be more visible following Bandstand's move to Hollywood. Later, Clark rented a building on the Sunset Strip, in an area among visible, legendary clubs and landmarks. According to his 1976 book, "Rock, Roll and Remember": "I hung up a very modest sign in lowercase print -- dick clark productions -- and started producing."
