Stephen BogartAuthor, Television Executive, Keeper of the Bogart Legacy

Stephen Bogart is the son of acting icons Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall and has had a very interesting and accomplished life.

Steve graduated from the University of Hartford with a B.A. in Mass Communications and a minor in Psychology. He then began a career in television, writing and producing news at the network level for more than 30 years. He has been a producer at several start-ups, including ESPN, The Satellite News Channel and Court TV.

Stephen Bogart was executive producer and coordinating producer of the critically acclaimed documentary for A&E Network, “New York at the Movies” (narrated by Meryl Streep).

Steve created the award-winning short for Showtime, “Personal Assistant” (starring Kathie Lee Gifford).

In addition, he was a writer and producer for NBC Nightly News; The TODAY Show; The CBS Early Show; WPIX-TV (NYC) News at Ten; and MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olberman”. He also was Executive Producer at WFLA-TV in Tampa, Florida and he guided that station to the number 1 spot in the market.

In between his professional commitments, Steve found the time to write three books. The first two were novels: Play it Again (Tom Doherty Associates, 1995) and The Remake: As Time Goes By (Reed Business Information, Inc., 1996). The third was a non-fiction bestseller, Bogart: In Search of My Father, (Dutton, 1995).

He has a fourth book (coffee table type) coming out in 2013.

An impressive compliment to all of these accomplishments is that Steve found the time to raise three children and presently works as a real estate agent in Naples, Florida.

Stephen has made public appearances and speeches at various venues throughout the world, (Italy, France, England, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, Australia), for various groups and at film festivals across the USA for those who remember the halcyon days of his parents. He has done programs at the Smithsonian Institute, Lincoln Center and prestigious theaters in Chicago, Los Angeles and other cities.

He also has appeared as a guest on dozens of talk shows including “Good Morning, America”, “The TODAY Show”, “The Early Show” and (going way back) “Tomorrow with Tom Snyder.”

Stephen Bogart is the co-managing partner of Bogart LLC, a California corporation tasked with supervising the marketing of and public relations for his father’s name and likeness (

In his program, An Inside Look At One Of The Titans of Hollywood, Steve will show a 14-minute home movie of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall (wedding, fishing, socializing with other stars, etc.) as well as the eulogy by John Huston at Bogie’s funeral.  The program can be done without the video as well.
