L.A. delegation looks at health issues in Mumbai

LONDON — A team of U.S. creatives are visiting Mumbai to gather ideas for shows in the field of global health.

Jennifer Cecil (“Private Practice”), Michael Nash (“Climate Refugees”), Zoanne Clack (“Grey’s Anatomy”), John Max Burnett III (“The Troop”) and Walt Disney Feature Animation exec Karen Tenkhoff are on the trip, which is organized by Hollywood Health and Society, a USC program funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

The team will also participate in a May 12 seminar on how Hollywood and Bollywood tackle health issues and storylines.

Indian participants will include veteran producer/director Ramesh Sippy and multi-hyphenate Amole Gupte.

Hollywood Health and Society’s Sandra de Castro Buffington said: “We are thrilled to bring some of Hollywood’s master storytellers to India to learn from India’s long, rich history of storytelling. We know that they will be creatively and personally inspired by what they see and learn while in this extraordinary country.”
