Herzog Unplugged

News Story

He’s brought you South Park, The Daily Show, and The Colbert Report. And on April 10, he’s going from the Boardroom to the Schimmel Theatre as the next Executive in Residence.

For the last 25+ years, Lubin’s Executive in Residence program has made it possible for chairs, C-suite executives, presidents, and other top professionals to come to Pace to interact with Lubin students and faculty.

On Thursday, April 10, at 2:15 p.m. in the Schimmel Theatre, Lubin Dean Neil Braun will sit down with Doug Herzog for a very special edition of Lubin’s Executive in Residence program.

No idea who Doug Herzog is? Perhaps you’re more familiar with his work: Doug Herzog is President of Viacom’s Entertainment Group, comprising Comedy Central, Spike, and TV Land, and under his leadership, the three networks have launched some of television’s most successful original franchises, including The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Hot in Cleveland, and more.

Now Herzog is expanding those brands onto emerging platforms, including mobile apps, websites, and video-on-demand.

Herzog began his Viacom career at MTV in 1984 just three years after the network's launch. There he developed and supervised MTV News and popular shows including The Real World and Unplugged, as well as the MTV Movie Awards and MTV Video Music Awards.

In 1995, Herzog became President of Comedy Central. In addition to launching several current signature series, he also was instrumental in developing the network's Roast franchise. He served as President of Entertainment for FOX Broadcasting Company (1998-2000). Among his successes at FOX were the hit comedy Malcolm in the Middle. He was also President of USA Network (2001-2004) and continued his emphasis on original programming, including developing the award-winning Monk.

This event is sponsored in conjunction with the Arts and Entertainment Management (AEM) Industry Network.
