This year’s Peabody-Smithgall Lecture will feature television producer Marcy Carsey of such iconic hits as The Cosby Show, A Different World, Roseanne, Grace Under Fire, 3rd Rock from the Sun, and That '70s Show.

Carsey began her career as an NBC tour guide, working up to The Tonight Show before moving to ABC as a programming executive. The co-head of the famed Carsey-Werner Productions, Carsey's work has inarguably shaped our understanding of the nuclear family across the last 40 years. She is currently working on That 90’s Show for Netflix, and has served on the Peabody Board of Jurors since 2016.

Sponsored by the Peabody Awards, Willson Center for Humanities & Arts, and Institute for Women's Studies as part of the university's Signature Lecture Series.

Requests for a sign language interpreter should be sent to by Monday, March 20.
