Mentors and heroes on the shore

OxygengerrymarcycropIt was great to see Marcy Carsey bright and early this morning at the Oxygen Mentors Walk along the Santa Monica shore. She’s a television hero, in my book, having done it (mostly) her way in the biz for so many years as one-half of the wildly successful Carsey-Werner Co.

Carsey looked like her respite of the past two years from the day-to-day agita of running an indie TV production company (purveyor of “The Cosby Show,” “Roseanne,” “3rd Rock from the Sun,” “That ’70s Show,” among others) was agreeing with her. And judging by the line of greeters that wanted to shake her hand, her legacy is not lost on the younger gen.

Carsey ended her active production endeavors with Tom Werner in late 2005 but remains a partner in Geraldine Laybourne’s Oxygen Media. And as Laybourne told the mentors and mentees who gathered for breakfast at the Casa del Mar hotel, it was Carsey who helped inspire the Mentors Walk concept that Oxygen has done in several cities (New York, Chicago, Washington, D.C.) for the past three years.
