Host & Executive Producer

Ted Rouse made his first film at the age of 12 using his father’s 8mm movie camera.  He calls it the “great WWII epic” crammed into three minutes!  By any standard, that first film was crude but it sparked a life-long interest in movie and television production.  Ted credits his father, a WWII Army Air Corps veteran, for making history come alive.  At first, his father’s collection of war-time memorabilia was used to play soldier in the back yard.  Eventually, they became irreplaceable props and fascinating content in Ted’s historical film productions.

With more than 30 years of experience in television broadcast production, Ted’s credits include thousands of hours of programming, thousands of commercials, and hundreds of hours of live content.  His work has been seen nationally on The CBS Evening News, ABC’s Good Morning America, Fox’s Funniest People, The Montel Williams Show and even The David Copperfield Magic Special.

Ted recently teamed with Catherine Wyler, the daughter of Hollywood director, William Wyler, to produce a comprehensive documentary about her father’s journey from his humble origins in Mulhouse, France to a career that included three Oscars as “best director.” The Turner Classic Movie (TCM) channel “picked up” the program which will air in 2024.

Ted is also an unabashed “academic nerd” and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and a Master’s in Public Administration.

In many ways, Ted has cultivated his first film into a polished and professional program that stands ready to entertain, inform and amaze today’s television and digital audience.
