Tara August

August has put together her fair share of all-star rosters, making her Turner’s very own MVP. She oversees all talent department aspects across the company’s TV and digital platforms. Also, she helps facilitate on-air productions, sales, marketing and promotional activities, with an emphasis on liaising with sport teams, leagues, agents and celebrities to facilitate contract negotiations and special guest bookings. She feels that Turner’s own “Angie Tribeca” is an example of diversity on TV, along with “Veep,” ShondaLand productions and “Ray Donovan.”
