In this installment of GEMA TALKS, we are joined by Charlie Andrews (C ’04), Executive Vice President, Development, Programming and Event Series at Fox Entertainment. Charlie has had an accomplished 15+ year career as a TV network and studio executive, developing and overseeing programming primarily at Fox, NBC and also at Netflix. In this episode, we discuss Charlie’s lifelong passion for television – and how he broke into the business right after Georgetown, starting out in the NBC Page program, and then his career path from there. Charlie offers details on what the role entails of a creative executive at a TV network and TV studio – and the differences between the two. We also discuss the state of TV programming today, particularly the intense competition for broadcasters with the streaming platforms such as Netflix, Hulu, etc. and the pros and cons to each for a creator. He also shares which of his new shows this season he is most excited about and if he could pick any show on another network to air on Fox, what would it be. Finally, Charlie offers excellent advice to those wanting to break into the creative side of television.
