Bill DeSeta has been involved in the entertainment and communications worlds his entire life. Starting in summers during college, working in stock and various Off-Broadway shows he would eventually produce, direct or design over fifty plays or musicals in New York in addition to building two theaters and owning another. His theater career culminated in 1972 when he produced 'The Candyapple' on Broadway.
He abandoned theater for a while in the '60s to run The Bitter End, the hottest Folk venue in the nation and begin a career as a photographer, creating posters and album covers for many top artists. In the late '60s he opened a restaurant, The Tin Angel, and got into building renovation, designing stores, restaurants and galleries in what was soon to be known as SOHO.
In the early 70's he entered the world of fashion, designing Body Jewelry. His award winning creations were marketed under his own label and that of Anne Klien and in the mid-1970s he began designing sets and costumes for movies and in the ensuing years designed nearly twenty films for theatrical or network release as well as episodes of two TV series.
It was also in the mid-seventies that he began writing, first successfully for cable-TV and later for feature films. His screenplay for 'Perfect Timing' still appears late night on HBO. He currently has two screenplays and a series optioned to three separate studios and a second novel ready to make the rounds.
In his spare time he curates art exhibits and is working on a documentary film about 'The Craft of Art.'
He is married to casting director Donna DeSeta and they have one son, Cristian, an accomplished musician.
