Stewart St. John
Co-Founder, Writer, Director, Producer, Composer
Stewart is an award-winning television writer, producer, composer, multimedia pioneer and filmmaker who began his career writing animated series at Hanna-Barbera where he was mentored by Joe Barbara (creator of The Flintstones and The Jetsons).
Stewart’s episode of The Legend of Prince Valiant, “The Flute”, won the prestigious Humanitas Prize for Excellence in Screenwriting, while his Sabrina The Animated Series was a Young Artist Awards winner and his original feature film Seventeen Again was nominated in the category.
Having written and produced some of the most beloved children and family-friendly properties seen around the world — 50 episodes of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (as story editor and writer), Sabrina: The Animated Series, Marvel’s The Incredible Hulk, Inspector Gadget, Disney’s Seventeen Again and more — Stewart is proud to present his own stable of exciting new characters, including the girl-power TARA TREMENDOUS franchise and supernatural SPOOKY TROOP franchise. As a composer, music producer, songwriter and lyricist, and a voting member of the Recording Academy (GRAMMYS®), Stewart infuses all of his original properties with songs and music.
Stewart has written, produced, directed and co-scored three seasons of the #1 Apple Podcast series Tara Tremendous: The Secret Diaries and two seasons of Spooky Troop, distributed through Wonkybot Studios. Some of the notable voice guest-stars include Superman star Sarah Douglas, Deborah Kennedy from Australia’s #1 television drama A Place To Call Home, and Gina Liano from the Real Housewives of Melbourne.
Stewart also adapted Tara Tremendous into a stage musical, and co-composed 20 original songs with his music partner Michael Plahuta. The show was performed as a live musical concert at 54 Below in NYC, starring Micky Dolenz (The Monkees), Annie Golden (Netflix’ Orange Is The New Black) and a host of other Broadway stars.
Producer Marc Platt has recently come on board the Tara Tremendous live-action feature film musical which Stewart wrote based on the franchise; together with music partner Plahuta they’ve composed brand new songs for the film.
