Chuck’s extensive production, directing and documentary film work, with his experience as a successful production company owner, has made him an ideal candidate for this position,” said Brooks Institute campus prexy Susan Kirkman. “His knowledge of the many facets of the industry will help shape the program and assist our students as they consider a variety of potential paths in motion pictures, television and emerging media markets.”

Braverman ran his own shingle for more than 40 years and served as a senior studio exec at Sony and a professor at the USC School of Cinematic Arts. He also helmed a swath of TV episodes including “Baywatch,” “Melrose Place,” “Northern Exposure” and “Beverly Hills, 90210,” as well as several Movies of the Week and an indie pic.

Most recently, Braverman has been the exec producer of Discovery’s new multi-hour series “Weed Wars” and the co-founder and managing director of the annual Westdoc Conference for docu and unscripted producers.
