Biography

Michael Donovan began producing Canadian films like "South Pacific 1942" and "Self Defense" in the early 1980s. His first credit as an executive producer came in 1986 on the Gemini Award-winning sitcom "Codco." He continued to produce television series and movies in Canada during the 1990s with notable works like "This Hour Has 22 Minutes," "Diplomatic Immunity," and "Major Crime." After executive producing the series "The Itch" in 2000, Donovan teamed up with controversial director Michael Moore for the documentary series "The Awful Truth." The show proved to be Donovan's first international success and earned him an Emmy Award nomination in 2001. He continued his partnership with Moore in 2002 by producing his Oscar-winning documentary regarding gun control issues in American society, "Bowling for Columbine." The success of the film propelled both men's careers and provided Donovan with the creative and financial opportunity to found his own production firm with partner Charles Bishop: The Halifax Film Company. Donovan then expanded his resume by writing the documentary film "Shake Hands with the Devil" and created the series "The Guard"; both works were produced by Halifax Films. He continued to produce television series into the 2010s with the Canadian sitcom "That's So Weird!"
