Coming up this Saturday at 1pm on Finding Your Bliss, Life Coach and Bliss Expert Judy Librach is joined by award-winning television pioneer, maverick, wunderkind producer and now author, Arthur Smith! 

Arthur Smith is the Chairman of A. Smith & Co. Productions and is an industry veteran and a pioneer in nonfiction television, known for creating some of the longest-running unscripted series in history since founding A. Smith & Co. in 2000. 



With 200+ shows for 50+ networks under Smith’s leadership, A. Smith & Co.’s credits include Gordon Ramsey’s Hell’s Kitchen, which forged the modern food competition reality genre in the U.S. and is FOX’s longest-running reality show, 7-time Emmy nominee American Ninja Warrior which recently aired its 14th season on NBC, Floor is Lava which hit Netflix’s Top 10 list, the multi-NAACP Award nominated documentary special Unsung, Welcome to Plathville, Profiled: The Black Man, American Gangster: Trap Queens, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s The Titan Games, Mental Samurai with Rob Lowe, Pharrell Williams’ Voices of

Smith also serves as Chairman of Tinopolis Group U.S., the leading TV production and distribution group, which acquired A. Smith & Co. in 2011. In this role, Smith also oversees the unscripted powerhouse Magical Elves – the Emmy Award®-winning producer of uplifting unscripted series such as Top Chef and its many spinoffs, Nailed It!, Cold Justice, Brain Games On The Road and more. 

Smith was honoured as one of Variety’s “Titans of Unscripted TV” in 2022, named one of The Hollywood Reporter’s Most Powerful Producers in Unscripted TV in 2022, inducted into the Realscreen Awards Hall of Fame in 2021, awarded Broadcasting & Cable’s “Producer of the Year” in 2020, nominated for several Emmy® Awards and received dozens of awards including NAACP Awards, Realscreen Awards, and Critics Choice Awards. Smith was the first-ever inductee to his alma mater’s “Ryerson Wall of Fame,” and was the founding sponsor of the Ryerson in L.A. scholarship program to create hands-on learning opportunities for Ryerson students. 



Prior to A. Smith & Co., Smith served as EVP of Programming, Production and News at FOX Sports Net. Earlier in his career, he held senior roles with both

MCA/Universal Television Group and Dick Clark Productions and was named the youngest-ever Head of CBC Sports. 

On the program, we also talk about Arthur’s new book Reach: Hard Lessons and Learned Truths from a Lifetime in Television. Comedian Howie Mandel writes that “Arthur’s story is the perfect read to inspire, entertain and inform” and bestselling author Robin Sharma writes: “An absolutely fascinating and engaging book about the workings of the television and entertainment world by an insider who has led the field.”
