Tom Remlov has worked to develop Norwegian playwrights and to produce Norwegian texts as a theatre manager and a film producer.

After studying literature in Oslo and theatre in London (1971-73) Tom Remlov worked as a freelance director and actor for theatre groups in London prior to returning to Norway in 1978. He was employed as a dramaturge at Rogaland Theatre by his childhood friend Kjetil Bang-Hansen, then the artistic director of Rogaland Theatre. They both moved to The National Venue of Theatre in 1982, and when Bang-Hansen quit in 1986, Tom Remlov took over the position as artistic director. His artistic profile for the theatre was partly a break with the profile Bang-Hansen had held. Remlov founded his artistic line in his own profession as a dramaturge and his knowledge about text, and he started a long-term work to develop Norwegian playwrights. This work lasted throughout his ten years as artistic director, and has later been labelled as The Bergen Project. Cecilie Løveid and Jon Fosse may be the most significant, distinct playwrights who were attached to The National Venue of Theatre at an early career stage.

1996–2001 Remlov worked as administrative director and producer for Norsk Film AS. He continued developing scriptwriters in this job. After 2001 Tom Remlov was partner in the movie and TV production company Dinamo Story AS and leader for the producing studies of Lillehammer University College's film and television science studies until he started as administrative director in The Norwegian Opera & Ballet January 1 2009.
