As the Executive Assistant in Comedy Development at ABC Studios, what are your major responsibilities?
There are many clerical aspects of the job – liaising meetings with our executives and writers/producers, fielding phone calls, etc. – I’m also empowered by my incredible Comedy Development team to aid in our creative endeavors in which we attempt to discover and nurture authentic and distinctive voices who can create unique, relatable, and surprising broadcast half-hour series. Specifically, I’m able to give notes on our existing pilots and projects, meet with writers regarding staffing opportunities on our potential series, and highlight any burgeoning comedians with whom we may want to be in business with.
