For the past 3 years Roy Bank (C’94, Intramural Football) took charge as the head of Development and Operations for Mark Burnett Productions, one of the most recognized television production companies in the world, overseeing such shows as Apprentice, Survivor, RockStar and Contender. Roy is widely known to have been the major force behind the enormous success of Hollywood’s top reality TV company.
I met Roy working on a mutual project with Mark Burnett Productions producing the Yahoo websites for seasons 2-6 of the Apprentice, The Contender and then a game-a-day promotional project for the Flushed Away movie. Roy’s zest for expanding traditional TV and film into new media lit up a new road for leveraging a content down multiple paths.
