The Recorder Names Darrell Miller Among California TrailblazersOctober 9, 2020 – Press Releases
Fox Rothschild LLP congratulates Darrell D. Miller, who was featured among The Recorder’s 2020 California Trailblazers.
This spotlight showcases innovators and thought leaders “who have made significant marks on the practice, policy and technological advancement” of their area of law.
As the Founding Chair of Fox’s Entertainment & Sports Law Department, Miller works with a growing list of celebrity and executive clients to strike career-defining deals and leverage every step on their ladder of stardom to break barriers and advance their personal brands.
In an interview with The Recorder, Miller says the industry is at a crossroads in the face of pandemic shutdowns compounded by the dominance of streaming platforms as the main source of audience consumption.
“You now have another wild, wild West gold rush of distribution platforms which are changing the way in which we are all consuming content and the way in which Hollywood is producing, developing, marketing and distributing content,” said Miller. “That’s going to continue to change and continue to be something that will shift the playing field.”
With his sage counsel, Miller’s clients have broken into the ranks of the Director’s Guild of America and taken on producer roles with the Emmy and Academy awards and the Marvel franchise, writing new chapters in entertainment history and clearing a path for the next generation to enjoy greater freedoms and tackle even greater challenges. His guidance to artists and industry executives goes far beyond negotiating contracts and his innovative techniques for effective brand building transform his clients’ careers. Miller is also a leading voice for diversity and inclusion in Hollywood, demonstrated by his recent success securing a groundbreaking multi-year partnership in which CBS TV Studios will work with the NAACP to acquire, develop and produce premium content that elevates diverse voices and increases the visibility of Black artists.
He earned his J.D. from Georgetown University and his B.F.A. from the University of Cincinnati Conservatory of Music.
