Tyler Perry Studios has hired Veteran TV and film production executive Michelle Sneed as President of Production and Development. Sneed has spent almost 12 years working in both scripted and unscripted television. Sneed served as Director of Physical Production with Viacom’s BET Networks, from 2015 to 2018, during which her in-house contributions included over a hundred packages of short form content, original docu-series, multiple television specials and tentpole programming.

Sneed was originally a member of the original production team at Tyler Perry Studios’ former Greenbriar location for six years, where she produced over 400 episodes of television during her tenure.

“I’m incredibly excited to welcome Michelle back to the studio,” said Tyler Perry. “She has always been someone who embodies the values of TPS, from the diligent work she’s done in development and production execution to identifying and curating talent both in front of and behind the camera. Similar to how I’ve always operated in my film and television projects, during her career she has provided opportunities to those whose diverse experiences and stories are often overlooked and untold.”

“I am ecstatic to be returning ‘home’ to Tyler Perry Studios where so much of my career was shaped and developed,” said Sneed. “To have this new opportunity to work alongside Tyler in senior leadership is an opportunity of a lifetime. It’s bigger than me – it’s for the culture.”
