Michaels

Producer

Michaels reigns as the king of late night, and it’s not only because he’s still in charge of NBC’s zeitgeist-defining comedy show “Saturday Night Live,” entering its 44th season. Through production company Broadway Video, he’s executive producer of NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and “Late Night with Seth Meyers.” His “SNL” has launched a long list of stars, from the early years’ Chevy Chase, John Belushi and Eddie Murphy to more recent phenoms Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Bill Hader. Over the years, Michaels has produced numerous films — often starring his “SNL” alums, including 2016’s “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” with Tina Fey and “Wayne’s World” with Mike Myers and Dana Carvey. He also produced TV’s “30 Rock” and “The Kids in the Hall.”
