Heidi Hanson is the Executive Producer and co-founder of Warner Hanson Television in Washington, DC. Heidi has more than 20-years of experience in creating film and television series, documentaries and digital media on issues of food, the environment, natural history, and culture. Her original work appears on PBS, A&E Networks, Discovery, ESPN, Hulu, Amazon and other broadcast networks. Heidi has received numerous awards for her productions which include several James Beard Awards and National Emmy Nominations. Food & Wine Magazine touted Heidi as“one of the most influential figures in food today,” naming her one of their “TASTEMAKERS." Under Heidi’s leadership, Warner Hanson’s productions have received critical acclaim for groundbreaking storytelling techniques that present complex issues in a understandable and entertaining format. Heidi is currently in production on GOOD CATCH, a national outreach campaign and television series that will premier on PBS in late 2017. GOOD CATCH celebrates the stories of America's fishermen by taking the nation's best chefs out to see where their seafood comes from. GOOD CATCH is based on Warner Hanson’s critically acclaimed 52-part PBS series Chefs A' Field, which helped ignite the local & sustainable agriculture movement nearly a decade ago. With chefs as her muse, Heidi has spent the last year getting her feet wet with fishermen (and farmers) from across the country in her quest to make fishermen and sustainable seafood the new face of American dining, through GOOD CATCH.
