“Movies have the unique ability to unite us – in them we either see a reflection of ourselves or they give us a window into perspectives and experiences that are unlike our own but are worth exploring,” said Dwight Caines, Universal Pictures president of domestic marketing. “The ‘Seen on Screen’ podcast celebrates the inclusive culture of our studio by putting a spotlight on the people who exemplify why Universal is a great place to work. We wanted to foster conversations about entertainment that allowed for meaningful reflection and revealed the impact of representation and inclusion.”

“I am thrilled to work with the Universal Filmed Entertainment Group on the new ‘Seen on Screen’ podcast,” said Coley. “Movies provide a magical experience, and I’m excited to meet and speak with Universal employees to learn what movies inspired, moved, and changed them for the better while playing some fun movie-themed games.”

NBCUniversal’s Fandango is a majority owner of Rotten Tomatoes, with Warner Bros. owning the remaining 25%.

“Seen on Screen” premieres April 24 with bi-weekly episodes airing on the Universal Pictures YouTube channel, Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
