Mini Bio (1)
Jeff Kovatch was raised in Wayne, New Jersey. Always interested in Entertainment, he took that interest to Seton Hall University graduating with a BA in Film and Television. Side tracked for a few years as broker on Wall street, he went on an commercial audition one afternoon on a lunch break with a friend and booked it! That particular Treasure Island commercial ran for three years! At that point he knew that was his calling! He left the financial world for good in order to pursue his dream. Right out of the gates he started studying the craft under Alice Spivak. At the same time he brushed up on his love for film by working as a PA and also Assistant Director for a few indies, one of which won the Philadelphia Film Festival. Subsequently, he was cast for two years in NYC's longest running Off-Broadway play, "Tony And Tina's Wedding." He is a member of SAG, AFTRA and AEA. His first big foray into production was when he was asked to be the Casting Director for NBC's "The Restaurant" season one. Upon meeting Mark Burnet, he knew this was it! Doing such a remarkable job, Mark's company asked Jeff to stay on as Casting Director for season two as well! He was then hired to help out when Trump's "The Apprentice" season one came to NYC looking for applicants. From there he cast "To Live And Date in NYC" (aka "Kiss And Tell") for the Metro Channel as well as the east coast applicants for "Dream Date" and "Cupid." All of this never interfered with his having a recurring role on "Conan O'Brien," "Guiding Light" and "As The World Turns." Amazingly, he still found time to remain a fit model for both Geoffrey Beene and Phillips-Van Heusen. A veteran of over 50 print campaigns, several national commercials, and three released features, he brings a lot to the table as his talents run the entire gamete of this great industry. He is currently writing, producing and developing pilots and features while busy running Inertia Entertainment Partners with partner and good friend Tony Anzivino.
