Kyle Bowser, an executive in the entertainment industry for more than 20 years, will join Professor Richard Dubin, Oct. 26 at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, for the fifth annual “Conversation on Race and Television.” The pair will appear at 7:30 p.m., in Studio A, Newhouse II. The conversation is free and open to the public. Paid parking will be available in the Marion and Comstock lots.
“A spirited and controversial conversation is guaranteed. Kyle Bowser is a pioneer in the executive ranks of television,” says Dubin. “He was the first black exec at HBO. I worked closely with him on ‘Roc’ and was impressed with his courage, honesty and support. His current work as a producer continues to reflect his strength and character.”
Bowser’s upcoming film, which will premiere on Lifetime in February, features actress Raven and deals with school integration in the contemporary south. Before founding his own production company, Res Ipsa Media, Inc., which has done work for Showtime, Lifetime, WB, UPN, HBO, E!, Fox, NBC, Starz! and Warner Brothers Records, Bowser worked for Fox and HBO Independent Productions.
The annual conversation on race and television is an opportunity for SU students, faculty, staff and members of the Syracuse community to come together and discuss the ecology of race and television with Hollywood insiders.
