Prior to working on Coronation Street, Steve had been producer of Emmerdale from 2001 to 2004, and The Royal in 2006. On screen, Steve appeared in an episode of Drop the Dead Donkey and was a judge on Soapstars. Early in his career he worked on Brookside and Hollyoaks.
Since 2009 Steve has been the Executive Producer of Emmerdale. He is also ITV's Head of Continuing Drama, and as such still oversees Coronation Street - working between the producers and ITV Commissions.
Steve changed his surname from Frost to November in October 2009 to match that of his wife and stepdaughter. He explained "it was easier for one person to change their name, than two people."
