“We are a network that’s built on incredible storytelling,” said Christopher Albert, EVP Marketing Strategy and Global Communications for National Geographic and National Geographic Documentary Films. “In this most untraditional of Emmy seasons, we wanted to find a way to bring our amazing talent from both in front of and behind the camera directly to the Emmy-voting audience — literally straight into their ears — while also keeping everyone safe and socially distant.”
Hunt has spent years covering Hollywood for publications including Fortune, New York magazine, Vulture and The Hollywood Reporter.
