Producers In The Time Of Covid Pt 1: Jenny Daly & Drew Tappon


It’s part one of my chat with producers in the unscripted industry in the time of Covid. How has the industry changed in the last month? How are shows being produced differently and what’s being sold right now? How will the future of the industry change because of all this? I talk to my friends Jenny Daly, President of Critical Content and Drew Tappon, Chief Creative Officer for 495 Productions. It was so good to catch up with them personally and professionally and find out how they’re weathering the storm (hint: family dinners and Howard Stern are helping!)

Born This Way - Drew Tappon & Jon Murray

Exec/Producer With Noah Pollack

BORN THIS WAY's journey from passed pilot to Emmy gold was years in the making. Produced for A&E by the legendary Jon Murray, AKA the Godfather of the industry, BTW masterfully tackled the tricky subject matter of Down Syndrome with a series that is both incredibly informative AND entertaining. Overseen by Jon's longtime friend and colleague, Drew Tappon, the story of BTW is one of passion, persistence, good fortune and so much more. I started my career answering Jon's phone and often found Drew on the other end of the line, as he was our network executive at the time for all of our MTV productions. This episode not only marks the end of season 1 for EXEC/PRODUCER, but is also a true full circle moment for me that I hope you'll all enjoy!

Drew Tappon


Today on the podcast, one of my favorite people, not just in the business but in life! My good friend Drew Tappon finally came to the hot seat which he found out wasn’t so hot and we actually had a great time. We talked about his long successful career on the network side, studio side and now the production company side. He’s currently the chief creative officer for Sally Ann Salsano’s hugely successful 495 productions which created mega hits like Jersey Shore and Party Down South. Drew is an EMMY winner for a wonderful show on A&E called BORN THIS WAY and you maybe shocked where he stores those Emmys..
