Read about the stuff I've done.

Executive Producer and Creative Executive

During her tenure at Maker Studios, Neely has created and overseen multiple successes, including the launch of the company's first comedy brand and YouTube channel (garnering almost a million subscribers and millions of views) and dozens of viral videos from Maker's top talent. Additionally, she has executive produced over 10 full series, ranging from YA, comedy, gaming, and animation. Each series caters to the various platform requests, ranging in length and style, as well as brand identity. Basically, she's a platform and content chameleon.

As Director of Programming for Maker's comedy channel, Nacho Punch, Neely oversaw the creative voice, programming, development, production, staff, and distribution strategy (which included both original and branded content). Nacho Punch's content amassed millions of views and has been featured in Time, People, Good Morning America, The Huffington Post, GQ, Nerdist, Jezebel, and various blogs you've probably never read.

As executive producer, Neely has developed and overseen the production of a variety of series and sketches, starring a plethora of traditional and digital talent, including but not limited to: Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), Adrianne Pallicki (Marvel's Agent's of Shield), Kesha (yes, Kesha the singer), Nat Faxon (Married), Ed Bagley Jr. (This is Spinal Tap), Pewdiepie (49M+ YT subscribers), CutiepieMarzia (6.7M+ YT subscribers), KassemG (2.6M+ YT subscribers), and Lisa Schwartz (2M+ YT subscribers).

As producer, Neely has overseen the production of multiple Maker top talent productions, ranging from Epic Rap Battles of History (2.4B+ views) and Shay Carl (YouTube's first family) to the Gregory Brothers (Songify the News sensations), Bobby Lee (you know who he is), and Good Neighbor (the former comedy troupe consisting of SNL stars, Beck Bennett and Kyle Mooney).

Aside from YouTube, Neely has created content for Disney Channel, Hulu, Verizon Go90, Samsung, and TruTv. She has worked on co-productions with Ben Stiller's Red Hour and Two Trick Pony, creators of the current CW hit, No Tomorrow.

Besides quality storytelling, Neely has an unhealthy obsession with dogs and frozen yogurt.
