Career Narrative:
John Lage began his career in 1984 in Entertainment with Edler-Brown Productions, and later NBC/Universal and New Line Cinema. Reading nearly 100 feature scripts per month, John soon developed an eye for commercial content.

A career opportunity presented itself when then NBC President, Brandon Tartikoff offered John the position of Director of Development at New World Pictures. There, John was responsible for greenlighting such hits as Tour of Duty, Designing Women, Baghdad Café, Second Noah, The New Adventures of Spiderman, the long running syndication hit Real Stories of the Highway Patrol and the Academy Award winning Trip to Bountiful with Just Betzer.

In 1997, John started CMC or Chelsea Multimedia Corporation. The purpose of the startup was twofold; to provide credit facilities and leverage to independents seeking capital and to produce multimedia products for worldwide distribution. Today CMC holds interests in over 26 film and television properties, 3 tech companies and a dozen direct response products. Sales exceed 4 million annually.

As a published writer, John has written numerous scripts, bibles and teleplays.
