Televisionation Friday Fireside: Courtney Miller on the New Production Venture between CBS Studios and the NAACP
March 11, 2021
Televisionation: Friday Fireside features Rick Howe, The iTV Doctor, in conversation with prominent figures from the advanced-TV/video industry.
This week’s Friday Fireside guest is Courtney Miller, Creative Executive for the newly formed production venture between CBS Studios and the NAACP, the purpose of which is to develop and produce scripted, unscripted and documentary content for linear television networks and streaming platforms. The partnership will focus on producing premium content that expands the number of diverse voices contributing to an ever-evolving society, and by telling inclusive stories that increase the visibility and impact of Black artists in a growing media landscape.
Courtney gives an inspiring description of her career (to date!) in the television industry, and provides some very personal guidance on the future of television. Friday Fireside host Rick Howe first met Courtney in 2014, when he coached a team of NYU Stern School of Business MBA candidates for Craig Leddy’s Interactive Launch Competition. As we say in the interview, watch out: pretty soon Courtney Miller is “going to be running the joint!”
