Five Questions with SCREEN: Executive Producer James Babiarz

What do Dua Lipa, Mad Men, and an epic season of Survivor have in common? They’re all right here as 11 Dollar Bill Executive Producer James Babiarz stops by for a thoroughly entertaining round of Five Questions with SCREEN. Let’s get to it!

SCREEN: If you could be a contestant on any reality TV show, what would it be?

JAMES: I’d say Survivor. I think it’d be cool to be on a tropical island (ideally) in the middle of nowhere.

Here’s an epic tropical island challenge for ya from the hit show, James, enjoy!

SCREEN: Worst job ever?

JAMES: I was a PA on a TV show called Bounty Wars. Stayed up all night in the back of a police car waiting for some criminals to come out of an LA jail – they never did.

SCREEN: Your favorite project you’ve ever worked on?

JAMES: I jump between projects on this, but since summer is almost here and I’m feeling the heat, I’d say working on the music video “Potion” by Calvin Harris featuring Dua Lipa.

Let’s take a look at this stunning music video…

SCREEN: What is your most prized possession?

JAMES: My five children.

SCREEN: If you could bring back any canceled TV show, which would it be?

JAMES: Mad Men.

Here are some memorable scenes from the acclaimed show…


SCREEN: One meal, any restaurant, and we’re buying. What’ll it be?

JAMES: Wow this is a tough question. Ok, if I have to choose: Santa Fe Chick’n sandwich w/ fries and a (large) order of buffalo tenders w/ an extra side of ranch from Veggie Grill. Water.

SCREEN: Best advice you’ve ever been given?

JAMES: Surround yourself by people that are better than you.
