Ron E. Scott (born December 7, 1967) is an award-winning Canadian-Metis, showrunner, and director. He is the founder of Prairie Dog Film + Television, an independent production company involved in creating scripted series. Company projects have been nominated for over 140 Awards, including Best Dramatic Series and Best Dramatic Writing at the Canadian Screen Awards.
Scott was born to a Metis-Cree family in Edmonton, Alberta. Drawing from his childhood background, Scott grew up in a dysfunctional, part-native, part-white world that influenced his work. He found storytelling and cinema as an outlet: "The language of cinema from an early age and my challenging childhood helped me speak into different aspects", and "My childhood and earlier adult years were filled with stories and experiences that prepared me."
He graduated from Vancouver Film School in 1993.
Scott founded Prairie Dog Film + Television. In 1995, Scott's first feature film, Rubber Man, aired at the Cannes Film Market, Europe Cable and Superchannel.
Cowboy Country, a lifestyle television series, credited Scott as producer, director and writer. It celebrates century and heritage ranches, educating the public about famous and legendary characters of the west, and investigating their cuisine and craftsmanship. Cowboy Country's four seasons were 91 half-hour episodes broadcast on APTN HD, CHUM, ACCESS, CLT and BookTelevision.
Ron produced, directed and wrote lifestyle television series My Green House, which consisted of 13 half-hour episodes broadcast on CHUM, ACCESS, CLT, and BookTelevision.
In 2007 Scott entered the half-hour dramatic comedy genre with Mixed Blessings - The Series, as executive producer and director. Mixed Blessings aired for 3 seasons on APTN with a total of 26 episodes.
In 2009 Scott released one-hour tragic series Blackstone, an exploration of community, power, and politics on a First Nation reserve. Scott served as the creator, showrunner, and director during the five-season run.
