Freeform’s Jamila Hunter, SVP of current series for alternative programming, is joining Main Event Media founder Jimmy Fox for the latest edition of the Unscripted and Unprepared podcast, hosted and produced by Fox in partnership with Realscreen.

In conversation with Fox, Hunter (pictured) discusses her multi-faceted career that began within NBCUniversal in 1997 before joining NBC’s alternative department as its second executive, her stint as head of programming for then-fledgling OWN, and running ABC’s comedy department. She also shares with listeners the reasoning behind taking a break from the reality business and her move into scripted, and why a great title is the key to any pitch meeting.
