Senior Director, Development, Jupiter Entertainment
Hats off to Harrison Land, who has already successfully developed and sold multiple TV series to several cable networks, including “Fatal Attraction” for TV One and “Love at First Bite” for Food Network—all while building a substantial set of contacts in the industry. His dream job? He’s doing it.
What makes you most excited about this industry as you advance in your career?
I get most excited about the new opportunities and platforms available for quality content creators. Producers are no longer limited to traditional platforms and business models. For storytellers, this is a truly exciting time as we can tell stories through new formats and devices that weren’t an option even 5 years ago.
What would be your ultimate dream job?
My dream job—I’m doing it. Ultimately, I’d be thrilled to develop and produce content on a larger scale for more platforms by using opportunities in branded entertainment, social activation and new outlets that are becoming more available for content creators today. At the end of the day I just want to tell good stories.
Who has been your biggest mentor and why?
I’ve been blessed to be surrounded by the best team in the industry, but without a doubt my biggest mentor has been my father, Stephen Land. His passion for great stories and relentless drive to produce compelling content has shown me there are a million different ways for producers to tell the stories they want but also how they want to tell them.
What three things can’t you live without?
1. Great content: I’m a sucker for a good story.
2. Jupiter’s team: Jupiter has the best team in the industry, and I couldn’t do what I do if I wasn’t surrounded by the best developers, producers, and business minds that exists within the industry. Of course I’m biased, but I truly believe that more than anything.
3. Allison Wallach: My agent, friend and mentor. She’s been just as influential to me personally and professionally as she has been in growing Jupiter’s business year after year.
