SVP, Entertainment Marketing and Branding
TBS, TNT and TCM
You could say Melton’s pretty happy in her job, with her list of accomplishments including award-winning work for the launch of “Conan” on TBS and last year’s clever “Dallas” campaign (“Yes, it’s back. And no, you’re not dreaming.”). But all that success doesn’t mean she can’t daydream about swapping jobs with someone for a month. On her list: Betty White, Chelsea Handler and Iron Man. Yes, Iron Man. “He’s got a rapier wit, a stellar assistant, fantastic accessories and Don Cheadle as his bestie,” she says.
I would love to swap jobs with Betty White. She’s a smart, incredibly funny woman who has achieved a lifetime of success in an industry that tends to bench women after the age of 40. She has never been better, and she’s old enough to say whatever she wants and get away with it. I live for that day. I also wouldn’t mind swapping jobs with Iron Man. He’s got a rapier wit, a stellar assistant, fantastic accessories and Don Cheadle as his bestie. It would be fun to trade with Chelsea Handler, who has my dream job. She’s successful for being unfiltered, irreverent and bitingly funny, as well as for skewering pseudo celebrities. Plus she has Chuy Bravo.
