Sr. Manager, Production Operations & Crewing Turner
Brandi Harrison is the Senior Manager of Production Operations and Crewing with Turner Studios. She has almost 20 years of experience in broadcast, operations, and event management. From documentaries, to live shows and even commercials, Brandi has been able to leverage her skills to create effective productions for a variety of partners, as well as great team environments. Currently, she oversees the scheduling and usage of 6 studios, 11 control rooms, and almost 250 staff and freelance crew to produce shows for NBA on TNT, NBA-TV, TCM, ELEAGUE, truTV, and most of the other Turner brands.
Brandi started her career at the number 1 local news station in the country WSB-TV, producing commercials. The spots ranged from celebrity endorsements to million dollar government campaigns to mom & pop stores with dogs and a baby – though thankfully not at the same time! While producing for 10 years, she discovered the right niche in production management.
Most recently, Brandi was the Senior Production Manager for the CNN Documentary Unit, responsible for managing the productions of 26-50 long-format shows per year. She traveled crews around the world and ensured they had exactly what they needed when they arrived.
