She began her career at Blackside, Inc. in Boston, where she directed, wrote, and produced "Brother's Keeper" as part of the acclaimed national PBS series "America's War on Poverty." In subsequent years, she continued making films for PBS, including "The Challenge of Freedom," which aired nationally as part of WNET's landmark series "Slavery and the Making of America."

Jeff Oliver is a producer and former Food Network executive with credits that include "Big Brother," "Last Comic Standing" and "The Simple Life."
