From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Stephanie Savage (born 1969) is a Canadian television writer and producer.


Early career

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. During her study towards a PhD in the same field, in 1995 Savage was offered a position at Drew Barrymore's production company Flower Films. Here she dabbled in scriptwriting, handling production rewrites for Charlie's Angels, and met the film's producer McG. The two later formed production company Wonderland Sound and Vision in 2001.

The O.C. and Gossip Girl

In 2005, Savage left the company to work exclusively on the Fox television series The O.C., where she served as a writer and producer. She said of the move:

I love telling teen stories where the characters are experiencing things for the first time - the stakes feel really high ... I'll write teen stories as long as people will let me. I'll also be excited for the day when I'm told I can no longer write teen stories[1]
