    Anthony has worked in the entertainment industry for 18 years. After passing the California bar as one of the youngest lawyers in 2000, he spent the first 10 years working in both Business and Legal Affairs covering all aspects of theatrical film and television deals.

    PRODUCTION: In 2010, Anthony teamed up with Executive Producers Mark Koops (creator of the Biggest Loser) and Eric Day to help launch Trium/INE Entertainment – an unscripted Television and Digital production company. During his time at INE, Anthony helped develop and produce over 30 projects including the Emmy-Nominated reality show RECIPE REHAB, Emmy-Nominated scripted comedy TV show, CROSSROADS OF HISTORY and MVP (Most Valuable Partner – featuring Kevin Durant). He also co-created and executive-produced the nationally syndicated television show HATCHED that documents the journey of entrepreneurs as they attempt to launch in national retail stores. HATCHED, in partnership with HSN and Sam’s Club, has since helped more than 10 start-up companies secure major retail distribution and investment. Anthony recently wrapped production on the action-packed drama film WE DIE YOUNG (based on an Oscar-Nominated short). He is in pre-production on his next feature film based on the hit Netflix documentary FEAR OF 13 – the story of Nick Yarris, who spent 23 years on death row for a murder he didn’t commit.
