About the Speaker

Named in The Hollywood Reporter as one of the Next Gen Execs 2016: Hollywood's Up-and-Comers 35 and Under, Nicole Emanuele, is the Scripted Development Manager at YouTube Originals. When Emanuele first started working for YouTube in 2011, she thought it would be temporary. The Maryland native was producing an independent movie and needed money to finish the film, so she became a contractor for the Google-owned streamer. "I was not the traditional type of person they hire," says the Florida State University film school graduate who started her career at John Sloss' Cinetic Media, where she met her now husband. Emanuele became fascinated with the technology that powers YouTube and made the job permanent, spending four years managing relationships with some of the site's top channels, including The Tonight Show and Casey Neistat. In 2015, she returned to the creative side of the business when she joined the originals team, which creates programming for YouTube's 1-year-old streaming service, YouTube Red. One of the standouts of originals head Susanne Daniels' team, Emanuele oversaw recently released Single by 30 and now runs point on the high-profile Step Up adaptation and a new thriller series from Doug Liman. Says Emanuele: "I'm excited to work with voices that are very natural and authentic and partner with them to tell those longer stories."
