Audrey Morrissey is an executive producer and the creative force behind both NBC’s four-time Emmy Award-winning musical competition series “The Voice” and “Songland,” the network’s first-year songwriting competition series.
A veteran of MTV, she spent nine years at the network in their music and specials division working on high-profile music series and annual event specials, such as “Unplugged,” “VMAs” and “MTV Movie Awards.”
After several years in New York, she was sent to Los Angeles to build the West Coast production department for both MTV and VH1.
Morrissey then joined Jimmy Iovine and Doug Morris as the Head of Television for their online music venture, Farmclub.com. She executive produced 65 episodes of the weekly music series “Farmclub.com” on USA Network and met her future partner, Ivan Dudynsky, with whom she started Live Animals Productions and serves as executive producer.
Since the formation of Live Animals, Morrissey has executive produced award shows, music specials, reality series, music videos and promos. She has executive produced the Emmy Awards, “People’s Choice Awards,” “MTV Movie Awards,” “CMT Music Awards” and, most recently, “Teen Choice Awards.” She also executive produced the NBC series “I Can Do That.”
In addition to her four Emmy wins as executive producer of “The Voice,” Morrissey has five PGA Awards for Outstanding Producer of Competition Television for her work on the show.
