Heather Porter has been turning TV ‘coal’ into ‘diamonds’ for over two decades. Sometimes, she’s lucky enough to just get diamonds, but where’s the challenge in that!?
She started at a little place called E! before women on the red carpet were asked “Who are you wearing?”. She cut her teeth writing and producing promos for everything E! had to offer, from “The Gossip Show” to “E! True Hollywood Stories”. She spent some time at The WB then made her way over to FOX for nearly 19 years.
At FOX, she had a hand in all genres, ultimately landing as Creative Director of Drama.
She put her stamp on such hits as “Empire”, “Bones”, “Lie to Me” and “Touch”, in addition to hundreds of other titles. She has had a hand in campaigns from the ground up, participating in all areas from Print & Promo, Shoots & Publicity, and Social & Digital.
Currently, she consults with Create Advertising, working with clients from Amazon, The CW Network and FOX while also keeping the wheels turning at her own promo company, Catalytic Creative.
