Brad Grey, chairman and CEO of Brillstein-Grey Entertainment, has joined the board of councilors of USC’s School of Cinema-Television.
The board — an advisory body that guides the school in establishing goals, helps design curricula and assists in fund-raising — comprises Frank Price, Frank Biondi, Marcy Carsey, Marvin Davis, Barry Diller, David Geffen, George Lucas, Bill Mechanic, Sidney Poitier, Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis, among others.
“Brad Grey has repeatedly pioneered new territory in television and film, which is exactly what we encourage in our students.” said the school’s dean, Elizabeth Daley. “His refusal to stick with the status quo has bred some of television’s most innovative programs to date. We’re looking forward to benefiting from his creativity and expertise.”
Responding to the announcement, Grey said, “I am honored to be the newest member of this esteemed board.”
Grey has been nominated for eight Emmy Awards, two Golden Globes and an Academy Award, and, as exec producer of “The Larry Sanders Show,” was honored with the George Foster Peabody Award.
