Robin Roberts To Lead New Production Unit At ABC News Studios

Good Morning America co-anchor Robin Roberts will lead a new production unit for ABC News Studios, with a dedicated staff and plans to produce nonfiction specials, series and documentaries for the network, Hulu and Disney+.

The network said the new unit will expand her current production portfolio. She launched the production company Rock’n Robin Productions in 2014.

Roberts said in a statement that the new unit “will be focused on heartfelt storytelling that reveals the mosaic of humanity.”

Roberts’s first project is a sit down interview with Kerry Washington, tied to the release of her memoir, Thicker Than Water. The primetime special edition of 20/20 will air on Sunday at 10 p.m. ET, and will be posted to Hulu the next day.

Jonathan Blakely will be executive producer of the unit, reporting to the head of ABC News Studios, Mike Kelley. Katie Conway will be senior producer, and producer Danielle Genet and production coordinator Kayla Simmons also will be part of the unit. Variety first reported on the unit.
