Santa Monica-based design-centric production company King and Country has hired Lisa Miller as managing director of networks and brands.
“We’re very excited about Lisa joining our team,” said Jerry Torgerson, King and Country partner and executive producer. “The entertainment market is one we’ve been involved in for many years, and Lisa’s passion for and deep understanding of this space will help us expand our brand in the most strategic way possible.”
“For years, I’ve been aware of King and Country’s extraordinary ability to integrate live-action with stellar design and effects,” said Miller. “The level of detail that they apply to a project from the conceptual phase through execution was a major draw for me. Beautiful imagery and sound strategy are certainly critical to a campaign’s success, but the ability to properly execute every stage of a project in a way that makes our clients feel completely supported and confident is equally important. I truly believe that King and Country strikes that balance perfectly.”
Prior to joining King and Country, Miller was VP of integrated marketing at Los Angeles-based entertainment creative agency mOcean, where she spent the last six years. Miller entered the media industry working in news at ABC and FOX affiliates. Searching for a more creative outlet, she left the media and spent the next few years working with various production, design and editorial companies as a producer. In 2002, she joined Citizen Pictures, a Denver-based broadcast and commercial production company, as an executive producer before being promoted to senior executive producer.
Miller has worked on high-profile campaigns, network rebrands, show launches and advertising for broadcast clients including ABC, CBS, Discovery Communications, Dish Network, Scripps Networks and Turner Broadcasting. She was also involved in the 10th anniversary campaign for Ellen and Warner Brothers Television, which won a Daytime Emmy.
