In this millennial generation, the collective power of diversity resonates more than ever throughout our broadcast spectrum. The Producers Guild of America East Diversity Committee is proud to pay tribute to producers of diverse backgrounds who have achieved excellence in our industry. Throughout the year, producers will share some of their insights on producing with an emphasis on a greater understanding of why diversity is so important in this global, multi-platform entertainment market.
Ali LeRoi is the Emmy Award winning executive producer/director of the syndicated hit TBS series "Are We There Yet?" Based on the film of the same name, Ali partnered with Joe Roth of Revolutions Studios, Ice Cube, and matt Alvarez of Cubevision, and developed the show for television in the ground breaking 10/90 production model. After an initial run of 10 on-air episodes, TBS was impressed enough by ratings to geen light a 90 episode pickup. Ali LeRoi is the only other producer/director other than Tyler Perry to have successfully produced a complete series on this model.
Ali is also the co-creator of the critically acclaimed syndicated comedy Everybody Hates Chris, a series inspired by the childhood experiences of the comedian Chris Rock.
