She will be in charge of showrunners, the creation of both scripted and unscripted content, and editorial choices in conjunction with creative leads. Al Roker and EVP Tracie Brennan are Tucker’s immediate superiors.

“Lisa is a wonderful creative talent and she adds further strength to our projects having developed and sold multiple series across different platforms,” said Roker, the company’s CEO. Our working slate has grown to accommodate the expectations of our content distribution partners in this era of “peak TV.” The Personal Librarian by Heather Terrell and Victoria Christopher Murray and Beverly Jenkins‘ Hopetown, which is based on her Blessings novels, are just a couple of the systems and platforms Lisa will work with thanks to her significant knowledge.
