Frederic S. Fuchs is a television and film producer active in the United States and Canada, where he holds dual citizenship.[1] He became an executive in the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation on April 3, 2006. He has been referred to as "internationally renowned".[2]

Fuchs became known for the television series Faerie Tale Theatre. He afterwards became president of American Zoetrope, and thus had a hand in producing films such as The Godfather Part III (1990), The Rainmaker (1997) and The Virgin Suicides (1999). With CBC, his work would include the television series What It's Like Being Alone (2006). Later, he was an executive producer of the Starz and GK-TV series Camelot.

His name is included in the credits to a video game based on Bram Stoker's Dracula and became a running gag on The Angry Video Game Nerd web series. Due to the stylized font used in the game's credits, The Nerd read his last name as "Fucks". "Fred Fucks" was included as the final boss in The Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures video game.

Honours[edit]

Fuchs has been nominated for Emmy Awards in 1988, 1997 and 1998 for producing Tall Tales and Legends (1985) and television films on The Odyssey and Moby Dick.[3]
