VYVYAN CAMPBELL, PRESIDENT & EXECUTIVE PRODUCER
Vyvyan Campbell’s diverse career in television and film spans over 30 years and several continents. From a young age, Vyvyan performed in all manners of entertainment, including acting in television/film and dancing on stage in London’s West End. This early experience served as an asset when she moved to Canada and became a producer. Since 1989, Vyvyan has achieved an outstanding reputation as a producer in lifestyle and reality television. Most recently, her programming has garnered critical acclaim on top cable networks across Canada and the US.
Vyvyan formed JV Productions Inc. in 1997, with a mandate to produce high quality, entertaining lifestyle, reality and factual-based programming. She has both produced and been an executive producer on over a dozen series, including the hit series Selling New York and Selling L.A. on HGTV US, and more recently HGTV Canada’s top rated series Live Here, Buy This.
In addition to her roles as President and Executive Producer, Vyvyan plays a predominant role in the development of new series and talent at JV. Her passion for finding and cultivating the next “big thing” is something that continues to excite and inspire her after several decades in the business.
That said, in JV’s 16 years of being in business, Vyvyan is most proud to have built a thriving family company and to work alongside her two daughters and son-in-law. It’s her belief that the company’s familial roots are what sets JV apart.
“We take real pride in everything we produce at JV. Instead of one person overseeing quality control, we have four passionate individuals who will go to any length to deliver a superior product.”
