NBCU LAUNCH believes in the enduring power of authentic storytelling.
When a person sees themselves and their story reflected onscreen, it has the power to validate their emotions, experiences and identity.
Compelling storytelling is also a vehicle through which people from different walks of life can come together to build a deeper understanding of and profound empathy for each other.
At our core, we cultivate, curate, and elevate the next generation of storytellers for our viewers to experience these inspirational and aspirational moments. Our goal is create lasting and meaningful change in the television industry by giving underrepresented voices access to substantive opportunities in front of and behind the camera. This includes talent from various socio-economic backgrounds, geographic locations, racial and ethnic backgrounds, people with disabilities, the LGBTQ+ community and veterans, among other communities.
We accomplish this by creating and implementing our talent development programs; sourcing high potential, qualified talent to be considered for available positions on our shows; and leveraging partnerships with key advocacy organizations.
Our efforts extend across NBCUniversal’s entertainment television portfolio. This includes the company’s broadcast, cable and streaming networks – NBC, Bravo, E!, Oxygen True Crime, SYFY, Universal Kids, USA, and Peacock – as well as Universal Studio Group – which comprises four powerhouse studios, Universal Television, Universal Content Productions (UCP), Universal International Studios and Universal Television Alternative Studio.
