Andrew Scher
EXECUTIVE PRODUCER OF “THE DOCTORS”




Andrew Scher often made the 20-minute drive from Marlboro to Beth Israel Cemetery in Woodbridge, to spiritually connect with his dad. After producing television on every level for nearly twenty years, Scher always dreamed about one day becoming an  Executive Producer of a hit show out in Los Angeles. He recalls, “When my dad was alive, he would always say, you are not going to L.A. until I am gone and that’s not going to be for many years!”

Unfortunately, in January of 2007 Scher’s dad was diagnosed with lung cancer and passed away just a few months later that May. Six months after Scher says, “I got a phone call from CBS…from Dr. Phil and a couple of CBS executives saying that they want to  interview me to be the Executive Producer of The Doctors in California. I couldn’t believe that just five months after my father died, I got a call to interview out there!”

After a series of interviews in November of 2007 Andrews came back to Marlboro and waited a few weeks and did not hear back, so he told his wife he was going to go visit his dad. On that day, while on his way, he said aloud, “Dad, can you believe I haven’t  heard back yet? Can you please do something to make that phone call happen?” Scher says it was at the moment he was turning left at the light into the cemetery when his bittersweet wish came true! The phone rang with his offer to take the job! He knew at  that moment, with his car parked next to his dad’s grave, he had received his father’s blessing to move to California.

He would be expected to start his new role one month later. He says, “I packed my bags and moved to California in January of 2008 and I have been out here ever since. My wife Michele, and two daughters, Arden and Emerson, did not make the move from  Marlboro until June of that year because we had to sell our house and I needed to be sure that this move would long term. The moved proved to be a good one. The show has been a huge success. He says, “The show just wrapped Season 2 and just signed  on for two more years!”

As the Executive Producer of the show, Andrew says he’s responsible for everything from audience warm ups to booking guests to graphics. He tells us, “I leave my house everyday at around 7 a.m. and usually get home at around 9:30 at night.” Ideas and  concepts are pitched weekly, but before anything appears on the show, it has to have Scher’s stamp of approval. He says, “We are teaching people about medicine. The key to our success is that we are dummying down medicine, but at the same time we are  both informative and entertaining. Our success has been proven with our interactive format. We were nominated for a Daytime Emmy® for Outstanding Information Talk Show, as well as the recipient of the Humanitarian Award from the Red Cross.”

Scher has a list of television production credits that could roll on and on. Prior to joining The Doctors, Scher was a Senior Producer of Dr. Phil; an Executive Producer for Banyan Productions’ A Baby Story, Trading Spaces, and A Dating Story; and a Supervising Producer of The John Walsh Show. There he spent time overseeing on-location specials in Modesto (The Search for Laci Peterson); Salt Lake City (Elizabeth Smart found alive); and Washington D.C. (The Signing of the Amber Alert). Other Senior Producer  credits include working on The Queen Latifah Show, The Ricki Lake Show, and The Montel Williams Show. And the list goes on…dating back to when he got his start as a Production Assistant in 1989 at Everyday With Joan Lunden, a talk show on WWOR-TV,  Channel 9, where he earned 250 dollars a week!

Scher offers a bit of advice for someone who’s interested in breaking into the business: You have to have a lot of passion for this. You have to be able to face rejection and be willing to be beaten up but never defeated.” That’s a quote he takes out of his  father’s book. “There are going be a lot of shows you’re going have to work on before you get to the top!”
