Jill Underhill, Crown Media Family Networks’ SVP of on-air promotions, is the proud mom of four boys. She adopted three of her kids from other countries: Russia, Ukraine, and Guatemala. Some years Jill has fun planning complex Christmas cards where the whole family dresses up in authentic period costumes. The 1970’s-inspired photo above is from one of Jill’s past shoots. “They really love me for it—or so I tell myself,” she says.

Speaking of the ‘70s, Jill still remembers the jingle from a Tide commercial from that time. During her childhood she was obsessed with television shows and commercials, to the point where she could sing all the jingles for products she saw at the grocery store. Jill’s passion for the industry has continued to grow and now she can quote both well-known and obscure TV and movie lines.
