ED- The Eerie Digest is truly humbled in being able to interview, and introduce, Producer Robert F. Campbell to all of our readers. Robert, you are one of the most well-known producers in television today, and have given us many episodes of ‘Law & Order: SVU’ . To date you have produced twenty-three episodes and co-produced another seventeen from 2000- 2003, and wrote another 15 episodes between 2000-2001. Between 2002-2003 you again wrote another thirteen episodes. This is quite an accomplishment ! Please tell our readers all about your role in these productions.
RFC- The numbers you mentioned may be wrong, but, it was a lot of episodes.
ED- Robert, we have many students that follow The Eerie Digest in hopes of learning the ins and outs of television and film. We also have many aspiring actors and writers that also look to our magazine for the same purpose. Please tell us how you began your career and how you chose this profession.
RFC- I was graduated from Temple University in Philadelphia and became a print writer in Philadelphia and New York. Later I became a head writer and wrote a motion picture that was sold overseas. After that I wrote for the Robert DeNiro TV Series, ‘Tribecca’ and the Dick Wolf show ‘Deadline’. About that same time, I became a producer-writer for the TV Series “Law and Order SVU.” I currently have a motion picture in pre-production. Students and young people starting out should remember, it’s all a matter of hard work, perseverance, who you happen to meet, and the friendships you make along the way. You never know who will help you in your career….that P.A. on your shoot may end up becoming an Executive Producer or even become head of a studio . My advice is to be kind, professional and treat everyone you come in contact with alike.
