Bob Stewart Productions
Bob Stewart Productions was a television production company founded by former Goodson-Todman Productions staffer Bob Stewart.
Stewart was an independent creator/producer who in 1954 had a show on local New York TV called The Sky's The Limit. He saw an auction house vendor apply a contest to prospective customers who received items by predicting how much they cost. This led Stewart to develop a show using this concept. Goodson-Todman took him and his show in by 1956, making a pilot called Auction-Aire, then the show was renamed The Price Is Right. It took little time for Price to become a hit for NBC. Stewart created two other shows, both for CBS--To Tell the Truth and Password.
Seeking greener pastures in the game show field, Stewart struck out on his own in 1964, creating his own production company. His first show was Eye Guess, which had a three year run. He loved word games, and his most successful creation was the long-running series of Pyramid shows starting in 1973. It won numerous Emmys.
Stewart's son Sande would create his own show (Your Number's Up) while helming his dad's company. Bob Stewart passed away on May 4, 2012; his passing was noted following the closing credits of the May 7, 2012 telecast of The Price Is Right.
