James Thorpe began his career writing, producing and directing series and special programming for several television stations in Canada. His efforts earned him international acclaim resulting in over thirty-five awards for writing and producing including the coveted International Film & TV Festival of New York Award, the Can-Pro Award, and two international BPME (Broadcast Promotion & Marketing Executives) Awards. James was then lured to the United States by the CBS Television Network. In Philadelphia and New York he wrote and produced campaigns for such popular television programs as Murder, She Wrote, The Cosby Show, Murphy Brown and many others. During his years at CBS, James was the proud recipient of numerous awards, including three Emmy Awards, six Telly Awards, five Beatty Awards, two International Film & TV Festival Awards, and the Clio Award.
