CAREY LUNDIN

Director, Co-Producer

 

Carey Lundin is well known for her ability to produce both comedy and drama, from hard-hitting political spots to emotional public service, to mockumentary webisodes to television programs.

 

Currently, Lundin is the director and co-writer of "The Worst Travel Show" for Facebook Watch and is developing scripted comedies and dramas. 

 

For a decade she was the creative director of Adelstein/Liston, a democratic political media firm where she directed hundreds of campaign spots winning the firm multiple Pollie, Telly and Omni Awards. Her greatest achievement was an eight year public service campaign for organ donation that helped Illinois reach the highest donor registry in the country that was lauded as the nation’s most effective organ donor PSA campaign. 

 

Having always wanted to experience the presidential campaign trail, Lundin made her mark with her mockumentary web series, "Citizen Kate," that made international news and was dubbed “the future of political journalism” when her butter bust was presented to Obama two days before the crucial Iowa caucus.  Kate, a total outsider to politics and reporting, and a fake character, was a media darling whose webisodes garnered over 2M views.

 

Lundin's work has been profiled in The Chicago Tribune, NY Times, LA Weekly, LA Times, Washington Post, The Center for Humans and Nature, Chicago Sun Times, WBEZ, WTTW's Chicago Tonight, The Economist, Fox News, Prezvid, Politics Anyone, TV Week, Garden Design Magazine and Traditional Home.

 

Lundin has produced television shows since the late 1980s when she field produced PBS educational series and "Unsolved Mysteries" starring Robert Stack; for Epiphany Pictures she produced "Phenomenon: The Lost Archives," starring Dean Stockwell; she won Accolade and Ada awards as the Supervising Producer ABCs "Treasure Hunters Roadshow"; and recently she produced "America’s Best Bites," a travel/food series for WGN.

Carey now lives in sunny, verdant Los Angeles.
