Distinguished Speaker Series

Ed Carroll

Ed Carroll has built some of the most successful brands in television and has overseen the development of some of television's most successful series, including Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Inside the Actors Studio and Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. He believes television has entered a second "golden age" in which TV is quickly replacing movies as the medium for thoughtful storytelling. Find out how shows are selected and tested for airing and where the TV industry is going next. There will also be a special preview of AMC's newest Series, Halt & Catch Fire - to premier Summer, 2014.  Dessert reception for ticket holders follows event.  For more information on Ed Carroll, click here.

About the SUNY New Paltz Distinguished Speaker Series:

Now in its sixth successful year, our Distinguished Speaker Series features high-profile individuals from literature, public affairs and popular culture, with each presentation attracting the campus community and the wider public, generating media coverage, and providing memorable experiences for our students. The college received a generous gift from a private donor to underwrite part of this series on campus.

The goal of the Distinguished Speaker Series is to connect community members, alumni, friends, faculty, staff, students and their families with well-known authors, policy makers and leaders, scientists, media experts, business people, and other luminaries, on our campus.
