Mark Saffian worked in production for years as a Production Coordinator and Assistant Director before becoming an executive. Beginning in the mail room at APA, then being promoted to an Assistant in the Packaging Department eventually becoming the Literary Department Development Coordinator where I helped to develop and sold pilots and films for the agency including the feature film "O" a modern retelling of Othello and the television series "24". After APA, I was a Development Executive and Story Editor for Sony Pictures and Sid Ganis/Out of the Blue Entertainment where I was a Story Editor on "Big Daddy" and "Deuce Bigelow: Male Gigolo". I read spec scripts, screenplays, pilots, books and evaluated projects of all types for acquisition and development for both film and television for the studio.
