Join us for the second installment of the Black X Speaks discussion series. This month we'll be sharing the screen with writer and producer Theo Travers ("Billions")––and additional panelists––as we tackle creating in Hollywood while existing in a Black body.

After graduating from NYU’s Tisch School of Arts, Theo worked as an event coordinator for a film festival and a news reporter in Memphis, TN, where he earned an AP award for excellent journalism. During his stint as a reporter, he interviewed President Barack Obama and Representative John Lewis one-on-one. He later relocated to Los Angeles to work in television as an assistant to several production executives.  

Theo's first official staff writing position was on Showtime’s House of Lies, where he wrote for four seasons. To date, Theo has written for Sleepy Hollow (FOX), The Brave (NBC) and served as writer and co-executive producer on Starz’s hit crime saga, Power.
