BIO Donna-Marie "DM" Reid

Donna-Marie "DM" Reid is the Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Undeniable Films, where she serves as an independent producer and Creative Director. Clients include NBCUniversal where she worked as a brain trust to develop, create and implement DEI programs and pipelines for the Global Talent Development & Inclusion group under Janine Jones-Clark’s leadership. Donna-Marie also has a comedy set up at HBO and is currently shopping a feature film with EGOT talent attachment.

Donna-Marie has been entrusted to develop and shepherd creative for some of the world’s largest brands in entertainment, including ABC from 2008-2015 (Shark Tank, Dancing with the Stars, Extreme Home Makeover Franchise), NBC (Little Big Shots), FOX (Think Like a Man TV Series, Miss Universe 2015), Warner Horizon (True Beauty, 500 Questions, Little Big Shots), Truly Original (Man Cave), Sony Pictures (Think Like a Man TV Series), IMG and Endemol Shine (developed slate of 40+ US/International formats for Steve Harvey’s overall pod deal).

Known as the Talent Whisperer, in 2015 Donna-Marie was tapped by Steve Harvey while at ABC to serve as his Head of Development and run day-to-day operations for his production shingle East 112th Street Productions. She also partnered with Ideal Living, a 100-million-dollar marketing company to pair talent with its award-winning brands and product line. There Donna-Marie has brokered and closed lucrative deals for talent in the health and wellness space, including Erin Brockovich, Judge Greg Mathis, and Steve Harvey.

In 2021, pandemic be damned, Donna-Marie broke new ground in the revolutionary voice app Clubhouse where she produced and moderated an All-Star 20+ cast and crew reunion which included the likes of Shawn Ryan, Michael Chiklis, and CCH Pounder from the critically acclaimed TV series, The Shield, under her newly formed club within the app, Donna-Marie Presents. She gained 10K followers within the first two months, averaging 1K followers weekly.

Donna-Marie also runs a 501c3 non-profit, Love, Ma: The Susan Eileen Scott Foundation, in honor of her late mother. Love, Ma has a focus on single mothers and children who find themselves in distress and need of support and course correct, but her foundation's work is everywhere a mother’s love should be.

Donna-Marie currently lives in Los Angeles, CA, by way of Atlanta, GA.
