Founders of Branch Out Productions, Lisa Oliver-King and Andola Mathis, have long been committed to diversity in order to combat the barriers faced by minorities and women in their home state of Michigan.
With an impressive track record in their own communities, the women resolved to broaden their reach, and further advance diversity in the entertainment industry.
In the fall of 2018 the women pooled their resources, and by 2019 founded Branch Out Productions. Lisa Mathis was made president and brought on to Executive Produce. In 2020 Krista Suh joined the team as EVP of Development.
Branch Out Productions is focused on providing exciting content that's created and curated by People of Color for a mainstream audience.
