AAPI Month Profiles: Day Eight

Teddy Zee

The Basics: He is one of the most visible champions for Asians in Hollywood.  The movies that he has produced and supervised have amassed 2/5 billion in revenue.  The man has a list of titles having served as Executive Vice President at Columbia Pictures, Senior Vice President at Paramount Pictures, President of Sony-based Overbrook Films, President of Fox-based Davis Entertainment, and now under the banner of Teddy Zee Productions.   He has done a lot of work to bridge the country of China and Hollywood together.

Why I Chose Them:  When we find success, we have to reach back and help our community.  We have to uplift others trying to do the same thing as us because that is the only way we’re going to find the diversity that we’re looking for.  This man is such a lesson and example for those of us who want to see more diversity in the media.  We have to operate behind and on the scenes to make these changes happen.  Without that alliance of people coming together to make things happen, it’s always going to be an uphill battle to get America to see its many different colors.
