Robin Pelleck, the VP of digital content for TNT and TBS original programming, is an adjunct professor at UCLA’s School of Theater, Film and Television. She teaches graduate-level classes in TV and digital content. “I love it way more than I ever thought I would and it’s true what they say, the teacher does become the student. I learn something from them every day that I’m there,” Robin tells us. Above, you can see her with her students working on a documentary on former UCLA running back Johnathan Franklin (now with the Packers).
Robin comes from a unique upbringing, having grown up in NYC as the daughter of the New York Post’s chief crime reporter. Her father held the position for 50 years and broke some pretty major stories. “Crime, news, NYC politics were all a part of my everyday life. It was all very normal to me but unique to everyone around me.”
