Ali Hart develops scripted and unscripted content for TV, Digital, and brands with a unique blend of storytelling, strategy, and humor. Her favorite recent project was producing a 5-part documentary web series for billionaire environmentalist, Tom Steyer. Ali has over a decade of experience using entertainment to influence culture, from developing creative concepts to producing to strategizing social impact campaigns for documentaries. But most of all, she just wants to make people laugh. At talent management firm Relevant Entertainment, Ali worked closely with comedians John Mulaney, JB Smoove, Mike Birbiglia, Greg Giraldo (RIP), Baron Vaughn, and more; her first client was Amy Schumer. She began her career at Court TV (aka "the house that OJ built") developing true stories of injustice into scripted films that were used to change laws. While there, Ali also helped develop the network's first scripted series, which starred cult favorite John Waters.
American Haze, the short documentary she produced for Sundance Now, was presented on a panel at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. Ali has delivered a workshop on humor and social change as well as moderated a short film panel at the San Francisco Green Film Festival, and she was awarded an openIDEO storytelling fellowship.
Ali earned an MBA in Sustainable Management from Presidio Graduate School and a BA in Communication Arts and English from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She lives in Los Angeles, where she's either at a comedy show or perusing the 'trash pandas' reddit thread.
