Jeffrey Taylor has over twenty years in the field of entertainment, having first entered the industry in 1981 as a producer for a London-based theatre company. His earlier career extended to his own financial services broking house in London, advising clients mainly in the entertainment industry.

Jeffrey mounted a number of stage productions in the UK before forming Stagescreen Productions in 1986. The film, television and stage production company was formed with others, including distinguished television producer Derek Granger, whose credits include 'Brideshead Revisited' and a series of Laurence Olivier television plays which he co-produced with Lord Olivier.

Since then Jeffrey has divided his time between London and Los Angeles concentrating on producing new work for film, TV and the stage. He has arranged film & television co-productions with Australian, Canadian, Egyptian and European entertainment entities, as well as major British broadcasters such as the BBC, often taking advantage of the subsidies and tax efficient film & television funding schemes that are available.

The first film ready to go; "Young Cloepatra" will be filmed in Malaysia next year. Further co-production partners are being sort in Europe & Asia for the many other "Young Legends" titles.
