Working with Levinson/Fontana, Burns headed post production on several series, including: 45 episodes of NBC's "Homicide: Life on the Street" and 48 episodes of HBO's "Oz." Burns has produced numerous television pilots, including her personal favorite, "The Joke Show" for Comedy Central.

Unscripted Television:

Brad Carpenter's introduction to the television industry began 15 years ago courtesy of Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi at Renaissance Pictures with their shows "Hercules: Legendary Journeys" and "Xena: Warrior Princess." His training in the world of scripted episodic Post Production developed over several seasons of HBO's much lauded, "Sex and the City," and continued in the unscripted world with 67 episodes of Bravo's "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy." After being fortunate enough to work on the first Emmy award-winning season of NBC's "30 Rock," Brad went on to Co-Produce "Life Is Wild," a family drama for The CW Network shot on location in South Africa. Over the past two years, Brad has been alternating between Co-Producer duties on Showtime's "Nurse Jackie" starring Edie Falco, and HBO's "Bored To Death" starring Jason Schwartzman, Ted Danson and Zach Galifianakis.
