Producer Paul Fishbein p.g.a.
Producer Paul Fishbein is known for the documentary series Time Warp: The Greatest Cult Films of All-Time, which traces the history of the cult films from midnight screenings through the streaming revolution. On the schedule for 2020 release is the documentary Skin: A History of Nudity in the Movies, which covers nudity from the silent era of the film business, through the production code, the formation of the MPAA and to current day, with a discussion of nudity in the #MeToo era.
Fishbein also produced the successful documentary X-Rated: The Greatest Adult Movies of All-Time, The Sex Awards, and the original series Sex with Sunny Megatron (with the Jay & Tony Show), broadcast on Showtime Networks.
Plausible Films' first scripted series, Submission premiered in May 2016 on Showtime. In addition, 2017 saw the release of The Greatest Adult Stars of All-Time, starring Whoopi Goldberg, Steven Soderbergh, Jenna Jameson, Rob Zombie and many more.
Upcoming projects include Sporting Guide, based on the book by Liz Goldwyn, the documentary series Prejudice, and Not Quite Hollywood (working title), a comedy series very loosely based on Fishbein's early life as founder of AVN and The AVN Awards. The company also optioned the book Time on My Hands, by Peter Delacorte, for a potential series or limited series.
Fishbein, the founder of the AVN Media Network in 1983 while working at Movies Unlimited, one of the America’s first video superstore (pre-Blockbuster), created the adult industry's leading trade publication and the annual AVN Awards Show in Las Vegas. He sold the company in 2010 to pursue his life-long dream of producing movies and television.
