Paul Guyot


PAUL GUYOT has written and produced over 200 hours of television. His work includes FELICITY, the Emmy-winning JUDGING AMY, and LEVERAGE which won back-to-back People’s Choice Awards.

Guyot served as the Co-Executive Producer on the hit series THE LIBRARIANS, taking over as showrunner in Season 2. He was the Co-Executive Producer for NCIS: NEW ORLEANS.

He has written pilots and feature films for multiple networks and studios, including his original pitch THE BLACK 22s — based on the true story of the first all African-American squad of detectives in St. Louis, MO — which sold in a fierce bidding war between four networks. The series died in development, but Guyot retains all rights to the story and is currently writing the feature version with award-winning screenwriter Geoffrey Thorne.

Guyot co-wrote the Warner Brothers feature GEOSTORM starring Gerard Butler and Andy Garcia, which grossed more than a quarter billion dollars worldwide. But don’t hold it against him.

He is the author of the forthcoming book KILL THE DOG, The First Book on Screenwriting to Tell You the Truth, which will hit shelves in the summer of 2023.

Guyot attended the University of Arizona. In his non-writing
time he enjoys cycling, golf, mechanical watches, and his quest
to find the perfect old fashioned.
