Alongside his twin brother, an award-winning songwriter, Rich tag teams as co-executive producer of the hit Amazon series “After Forever”—it’s up for six of the coveted awards.
He’s not just a top producer; he plays one on TV.
Lawrence S. Rich, an associate broker at Corcoran’s East Side office in Manhattan, stepped in last year as executive producer of the hit Amazon series “After Forever,” a digital drama chronicling the life, love and loss of a fifty-something gay couple in New York City. Now, the series, which Rich co-produces with his twin brother Allan, is now up for six Daytime Emmys, including “Outstanding Digital Drama Series,” an award that would land on their desks.
Watch closely in season 2, episode 3 and you’ll also spot Lawrence as an extra — in the nightclub scene at Hell’s Kitchen’s Don’t Tell Mama.
This latest string of accolades follows a trifecta of wins at the 2020 Indie Series Awards, where the show snagged “Best Drama Series.”
“The thrill of it is really doing it together,” said Lawrence in a recent interview with Dan’s Papers. “I would love for my brother to have a trophy on the mantle and know that I had something to do with us making it happen.”
They’ve signed on to continue their collaboration for Season 3.
The two brothers, New York natives, grew up inseparable but took divergent paths. Allan pursued a music career in Los Angeles, while Lawrence, a Pratt grad, built Rich and Levy, a women’s clothier favored by power brokers from Oprah Winfrey to Nancy Reagan. And in 2004, after two decades helming his fashion house, Lawrence got his real estate license, largely at the behest of friends seeking his expertise after his personal selling success.
“Real estate is, of course, still my main business,” Lawrence added. “But the show has been an incredible project.”
The 47th annual Daytime Emmys air 6pm this Friday, 6/26, on CBS, with recipients and guests joining from home.
