Something’s amiss here as we’ve been given the runaround each time we attempted to reach MJZ senior executive producer Jeff Scruton. Phone calls were referred elsewhere, messages and direct emails to the man were left unanswered and we have even been unable to get a clear yea or nay as to whether he is still part of the bi-coastal/U.K.-based production company.
Over the past few days, folks on the Spy line have been telling us that Scruton and MJZ, which has been lathered up aplenty by Creativity and other pubs over the years (check out their directorial roster and portfolio if you’re wondering why), have parted ways. Scruton personally has worked with the likes of Spike Jonze, Dante Ariola and Tom Kuntz while at MJZ. Some of Scruton’s most recent handiwork as senior EP at the prodco includes the Old Spice “Sea Captain” spot. We’ve give you a shout a few times, Jeff. If you’re out there, feel free to holler back and let us know what’s up.
