Nicknamed "The Olivia Pope of Entertainment", by the Sentinel Milan Zoe is actively working to elevate the status of the culture both in front and behind the camera. 

 

It was once said that "diversity was not needed behind the camera in order to tell the story of diversity in front of the camera." This statement could not be more inaccurate and was ultimately what fueled Milan's need to become a producer.

 

Milan is the founder of Laniland Productions, a full-service production company that to date has produced, directed, and curated content for brands like Nike, Hennessy, BET, Veuve Cliqout, and Shaderoom to name a few. 

 

She is also the founder of #ChangingTheNarrative, a nonprofit organization that encourages & empowers people to disrupt the status quo promoting inclusion & social responsibility in art, media,& entertainment.

 

 When not working behind the scenes she can be caught on camera as she was recently named the official host of ebony media and ebony entertainment. 

 

Milan is diligently using her art as a form of activism to change the narrative behind the camera so that she can ultimately change interracial interactions all over the world.
