Jerry Bruckheimer Biography
Jerome Bruckheimer (born September 21, 1945) is an American film and television producer.

During the 1980's and 1990's, he was a co-producer with the late Don Simpson of a string of highly successful Hollywood films. His first big hit was with 1983's Flashdance, and he had a number of others including the Beverly Hills Cop films, Top Gun, and Days of Thunder. Most featured elaborate special effects, a thumping pop music soundtrack, simplistic plots, and highly telegenic if sometimes improbably cast actors.

Despite the setback of the untimely death of Simpson in 1996, has continued to produce a large number of action movies, including the hits Pearl Harbor, Armageddon, Remember the Titans, Black Hawk Down and Pirates of the Caribbean.

Since 1997 he has branched out into television, creating a number of police dramas of which CSI: Crime Scene Investigation has been the most successful. He has also produced the reality game show The Amazing Race.

Bruckheimer has been married twice.
