Not long ago, thanks to our friends at The Hub, Marty and myself had the opportunity to talk with Jeff Kline, the Executive Producer of Transformers Prime, in celebration of the upcoming season premiere of Beast Hunters.
Here’s more about Jeff:
For the past 15 years, Jeff Kline has worked across numerous mediums and platforms as both writer and executive producer, and has been involved in over 40 animated and live-action series and pilots. Currently, Kline is the executive producer and co-developer of the fully-CG series Transformers: Prime (along with partners Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci) and the animated G.I. Joe: Renegades. Both series are produced for The Hub, a television network for kids and their families, owned by Hasbro. Hasbro recently signed Kline to a development and production deal, and he is set to premiere the new animated series , TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS, in December 2011.
Previously, Kline has been involved in such hits as Jackie Chan Adventures (Kids WB), Men in Black: The Animated Series (Kids WB), Roughnecks: The Starship Troopers Chronicles (Syndicated), the Emmy nominated Dragon Tales (PBS), and That Was Then (ABC).
Kline began his television career as a Development Executive with tenures at NBC Entertainment, and nearly six years at Columbia Pictures Television before transitioning into writing and producing.
A graduate of Boston University, Kline also helped to start the ‘BU in LA’ industry exchange program, when he was a student at the University. He guest lectures for the program and has also received their Distinguished Alumnae award. In the spring of 2009, Kline taught at BU’s College of Communications
Kline currently splits his time between Los Angeles and Maine, where he resides with his family.
