Devon Greggory

showrunner/executive producer The Game; co-creator/showrunner American Soul; writer, Underground, CBS: Cyber, Being Mary Jane
Born the youngest of nine, in the heart of Dixie, Devon Greggory grew up escaping the harsh reality of the projects through film and television. Years later, this Alabama native would pack his bags and run away to pursue his dream of filmmaking. Homeless, hungry and living on the streets of LA, he failed. But in failure, he found resilience. Devon would refocus, obtain his JD from Emory University School of Law and join Jones Day, one of the world’s foremost law firms, as a star associate.

But, after a season of legal practice, Devon left the comfort of law to again chase that dream; this time by earning his MFA in Production from the University of Southern California where he would hone his craft, winning the Jeffrey Jones Writing Award and becoming a finalist for both the Sundance Filmmaker’s Lab and Screenwriter’s Lab.

His credits also include stints on WGN’s critically acclaimed drama, Underground; CBS’s franchise spin-off, CSI: Cyber; and BET’s ground-breaking hit, Being Mary Jane… and he was the creative force behind BET’s Soul Train-inspired period drama, American Soul, as Co-Creator, Showrunner and Executive Producer.

In success, Devon founded The Inphiniti Company, a full-service production house where he serves as President and CEO. Currently in a multi-year overall deal with CBS TV Studios, Devon, through Inphiniti, will be writing, directing and producing content for CBS, Paramount+, The CW and various ViacomCBS-owned platforms. Devon is currently writing and executive producing a reboot of The Game for Paramount+.

Devon is repped by CAA, manager Steve Simons of The Shuman Company and attorney John Meigs of Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, & Hoberman. He serves as an adjunct professor at his alma mater, USC. And, he currently resides in Los Angeles with his beautiful wife and two amazing sons.
