This spring, American Corporate Partners (ACP), Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of American (IAVA), The Mission Continues (TMC) and Student Veterans of America (SVA) coordinated with The Daily Show to select twenty four veterans to participate in a television production immersion program. For six weeks, the group met for weekly sessions at The Daily Show Studio to explore the technical, logistical and creative opportunities that exist in the industry.
By meeting with key departments at the show, the group gained insight into a live-to-tape television program and the related career paths. The program culminated in a career fair involving over twenty of the most influential organizations in the entertainment industry.
We would like to sincerely thank Jon Stewart and The Daily Show staff for coordinating and executing this successful program.
