About our guest: Eric Kuhn is a successful entrepreneur sitting at the intersection of media, entertainment and technology.

Most recently he helped start and run Layer3 TV, a next-generation cable provider that sold to T-Mobile.  Previously Eric was Hollywood’s first “social media agent” at United Talent Agency where he represented some of the industry’s top writers, directors, actors and producers on investments, digital strategy and social media.

In 2009 Eric became CNN’s Audience Interaction Producer, running social media and producing some of the first television programs that integrated digital platforms. He also is responsible for launching the National Basketball Association and CBS News on social media.

Passionate about the arts, this season he produced his first Broadway show: Harvey Fierstein’s Torch Song. He also sits on the boards of Lincoln Center Theater and SeriesFest (an award-winning festival dedicated to showcasing episodic storytelling from around the world).
