Antoinette Media Founder and CEO Lashan Browning is an industry-leading television and film producer with decades of experience in all areas of development and production.

Prior to forming Antoinette Media, Browning served as Principal of Nola Global Entertainment, a full-service production company with network clients including Bravo, OWN, Discovery, Lifetime, Oxygen and WE tv. Under the Nola banner, Browning created and executive produced such unscripted hits as TLC’s Starter Wives Confidential and spearheaded new content for Viacom brands in a partnership that evolved into Antoinette Media’s joint venture with Paramount Global.

As a sought-after Executive Producer and Showrunner, Browning launched the hot-button docuseries Cartel Crew for VH1 and oversaw four seasons of the network’s blockbuster Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta franchise, achieving weekly viewership levels surpassed only by Game of Thrones. She also executive produced Viacom’s long-running hit Basketball Wives, as well as Love & Hip Hop spinoffs Stevie & Joseline Go Hollywood and Leave It To Stevie, and consulted on Bravo’s limited event series XScape: Still Kickin’ It.

Browning’s relationship with Paramount Global and its subsidiaries dates back 20 years, to her role as Co-Principal at Red Moxie Productions, where she conceptualized and executive produced Ride with Funkmaster Flex, the multi-season flagship hit that launched Spike TV in 2003. In the same role, Browning created and executive produced Hair Trauma, an unscripted look at the world of celebrity hairstylist Ellin Lavar for WE tv.

In 2001, Browning earned critical praise for writing and executive producing Lifetime’s Intimate Portrait: Missy Elliot, a documentary tracing the Grammy-winning rapper’s rise from extreme childhood poverty to worldwide superstardom. The project helped cement Browning as a go-to creative for artists looking to tell their stories.

Browning’s first foray in television was at the Oxygen Network, which she helped launch in 1999, under the stewardship of mentor Gayle King, during the tenure of Oprah Winfrey, Geraldine Laybourne, and Carsey-Werner-Mandabach. The Oxygen team would later hire Browning to write, direct, produce, and shoot documentary shorts celebrating the life and work of contemporary icons including Dr. Maya Angelou and activist Cheri Honkala.

Browning learned the ins and outs of filmmaking under the prestigious auspices of Spike Lee, with whom she produced iconic TV spots for Nike and Levi’s, plus the award-winning short film “A Gut Feeling” starring Saul Williams and Ruben Santiago-Hudson. Her tenure with Lee kicked off Browning’s journey through the world of 90’s cinema, where she racked up credits on now-classic films such as WAITING TO EXHALE, SLEEPERS, and GREAT EXPECTATIONS, and flourished under the mentorship of iconic filmmakers including Barry Levinson, Ezra Swerdlow, and Marc Levin. Their sophisticated, quality-first approach to storytelling remains a profound influence for Browning as she blazes new trails in contemporary content creation.
