Wide Angle Lunch: Dave Morgan
Yes, Television Can Be a Positive Influence on Society!
In recent years, Charlestonians have grown accustomed to watching their streets transform into television and movie sets. What many don't know is that Dave Morgan, Founder, President and CEO of Mount Pleasant-based Litton Entertainment, has been quietly putting the Lowcountry on the entertainment industry map for more than ten years.
Morgan established Litton in 1989 and partnered with prominent animal ambassador Jack Hanna to produce and distribute pro-social programs aimed at America's youth. Today, Litton Entertainment is a world class producer, distributor and partner programming 22 half hours on leading broadcast networks including ABC, CBS and The CW. Litton currently produces more than 600 hours of Emmy Award-Winning television reaching over 250 million viewers annually.
Litton's production facilities span the country in cities including New York, Burbank, Boston, Washington, D.C.and Charleston. The recent acquisition of a 50,000 square foot studio in North Charleston, which will serve as the production home for CBS's new scripted series called "The Inspectors," doubled its production space.
Morgan and his family live in Charleston, where he serves on The School of Business Board of Governors for the College of Charleston and MUSC Children's Hospital Board. In addition, Mr. Morgan taught "The Business of Television," a television business course at College of Charleston aimed at inspiring young people to pursue careers in television and emerging media.
