Todd Milliner serves as executive producer on NBC’s alternative series “Hollywood Game Night” and drama series “Grimm.”
Milliner formed Hazy Mills Productions with Sean Hayes in 2003. Their first two pilots, “UnderExposed” and “Situation Comedy,” were produced for Bravo. The latter, which premiered in 2005, became the first documentary television show that set out to find the next great sitcom.
Milliner also executive produced TV Land’s hit comedy “Hot in Cleveland,” which debuted to the largest basic cable comedy audience in history and generated the highest ratings in the history of TV Land. Additionally, the show received a Screen Actors Guild Award comedy series nomination in 2011, the same year Betty White won for actress in a comedy series.
Milliner also served as the executive producer on TV Land’s “Soul Man,” starring Cedric the Entertainer.
Milliner and Hayes have created shows for CBS, NBC, Showtime, the CW, UPN, Syfy, FX and Fox. Additional projects include “Eight Days a Week” and the TBS pilot “What News?” which Milliner also co-wrote and executive produced.
He also produced the Ovation-nominated production of Richard Greenberg’s “Take Me Out” in 2011.
Milliner hails from Chicago, where he worked and taught at the comedy improv group Second City. With an acting and sketch-comedy background, Milliner continues to develop shows for the stage in Los Angeles.
