Wall Street Journal: South Asian Americans Gaining Foothold in Entertainment Industry

CATEGORIES

Mindy ProjectSamata Narra hopes to pass on her passion for working in the entertainment industry to the next generation.

The Vice President of comedy development for Fox Broadcasting is scheduled to speak at this weekend’s South Asian Media, Marketing and Entertainment Association Conference in New York City.

“To me, the most important part about uniting South Asian Americans in media is letting the next generation know that the jobs we have are legitimate career options, something that wasn’t obvious to me when I was growing up,” she said to the Wall Street Journal.

Among the many shows she oversees is The Mindy Project & New Girl.

The conference began just four years ago and has already grown from six sponsors to 30 sponsors.

“There really wasn’t a single voice in the U.S. speaking on behalf of the growing number of South Asians in creative fields,” Samma co-founder Rajan Shah said. “And the only way an industry grows is by coming together.”
