Alan Spencer Productions

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


This is the production company of television writer and producer Alan Spencer.

Logo (September 23, 1986-August 16, 2012?)

Visuals: A simple byline (in white font) appears after the production company/year wall of text. This byline is usually placed in front of (or above) a background picture (see "Variants" below) and is immediately followed by an "In Association With" text and whatever company produced the TV show or movie.


  • The Nutt House: There is a still shot of a front area (including doors and a doorman) of a fancy New York hotel. People are walking about on the sidewalk. The trunk of a gold cab with its tail lights on appears on the lower left quarter of the screen. This byline is on the middle of the shot (in a Cheers-like font):

The shot is immediately followed by the Touchstone Television logo.

  • The Ghost Writer (1990 TV movie): The byline is on top of the screen written as such:

The picture that accompanies that byline below is that of a dead man rising from his coffin, attempting to strangle an obviously alive guy out of anger. This is followed by the logos of Phoenix Entertainment Group and New World Television.

  • Galaxy Beat (1994 TV movie): The byline is in the middle of the screen (like The Nutt House variant) and written in same manner as The Ghost Writer variant, only with an entirely different font (the bigger size of the font made on the first letters of Alan Spencer's name) and with a line separating the name and "PRODUCTIONS". This is accompanied by a picture of the main cast (including a little alien). It is followed by the 3 Arts Entertainment and HBO Independent Productions logos.

Technique: A still, chyroned graphic.

Audio: The ending theme of the program.

Availability: Seen on shows and TV movies produced by Alan Spencer, such as Sledge Hammer, The Nutt House, The Ghost Writer, and Galaxy Beat.
