An Alternative Path to Success

panel discussion with TV Executives

March 26, 2024

An Alternative Path to Success

4:00pm–5:30pm | Panel Discussion
Hall of the Arts 160

A "corporate job with flair," the role of a TV executive includes developing new shows with writers and producers, and deciding which stories make it to the screen. It is one of the most powerful jobs in the media industry, yet few college students are familiar with this alternative path to success. If you have a keen eye for talent and quality, consider guiding your steps now for a future career in television as an executive! The panel features Marissa Brooks (VP of Drama Development, CBS TV Studios), Jesse Kimsey-Bennet (Director of Original Content, Paramount +) and Prince Baggett (Head of Film, Confluential Films), and is moderated by television writer and CMU School of Drama alum, Alesia Etinoff.
