The SPT Media & Talent Relations handles the publicity needs for both domestic and international production and distribution properties. Ranging from launching new series domestically to coordinating talent participation for an international talent tour, our department handles all aspects of publicity and talent relations.
Summer 2017 is a key time for Sony's Media & Talent Relations team. We will be handling all the Summer launches for series including Better Call Saul, The Gong Show and The $100,000 Pyramid and help with plans and coordination for Comic-Con and TCA. Based on the intern's specific area of interest, we can have the person shadow a campaign launch with the opportunity for them to brainstorm and work on PR strategy with initiatives that can be executed. They will have the opportunity to work closely with publicists on their shows.
The intern will be exposed to a variety of tasks including: Press clippings, table reads, press interviews, set visits, EPK/Promo shoots, talent tours, various events, marketing & PR brainstorming sessions, drafting log lines, attending international field office calls and more.
The intern working with the team will gain valuable knowledge in understanding: what press breaks are, knowing the media and how they work in conjunction with publicists, what goes into launching a domestic television publicity campaign, knowing differences between domestic and international publicity, creating relationships, working with talent and reps and learning the detailed process of organizing an event from start to finish.
