Robert Bauer

producer Baby, Baby, Baby

Bauer made a mess of things as a young truant growing up in europe. His carefully crafted disheveled behavior led to a handful of years in front of the camera – warf's warring protégé in star trek's next gen, johnny horne in david lynch's twin peaks, and of course everyone's favorite roadie, moke, from this is spinal tap are but a few of his more forgettable performances. Heading the advice of his closests advisors, namely his agent and manager, to "pack it up and get out of the business" he did just that and began producing.

Adam Goldberg's directorial debut Scotch and Milk, Kerri Leigh Green's Bellyfruit, Grant Heslov's Waiting for Woody, Adrienne Shelly's Waitress (headed to broadway 2016!) to name the ones that he cares to recall. Bauer dabbles in television when the opportunity presents itself, like the time he co-created the Starz original half hour comedy Head Case, which ran for three seasons, though most people remember that show as the thing that lead into that other, more well known Starz show..Party Down; a show which Bauer had nothing to do with, and still carries the resentment to prove it.


He's learned a lot along the way, mostly and thankfully, what not to do, when endeavoring to do what you want to do.
