Carey Lundin is a multi award-winning director, writer and producer specializing in comedic digital series, media for progressive candidates, and documentaries.
Lundin recently directed and co-wrote “The WORST Travel Show,” a five-episode comedy/travel series for the newly launched Facebook Watch and WatchMojo.
Her digital series, Citizen Kate, The Outsiders’ View of Inside Politics, (90 episodes, distributed by FiOS, and YouTube Partner as an official partner channel) followed Barack Obama from his launch through his inauguration. The series had hundreds of thousands of followers and hit a high water mark when her butter bust of Obama made the international news and helped him secure the vote in the crucial Iowa caucus.
In 2016 Lundin rebooted Citizen Kate to cover Trump’s early campaign in Iowa, Clinton and Bernie Sanders. That series featured two Second City improvisers and also used Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook initiatives to drive voter registration in Wisconsin.
Lundin’s multi-award winning documentary, Jens Jensen The Living Green, is available on Amazon Prime and aired on PBS stations nationwide. The film just won an international communications award from the American Society of Landscape Architects. Curious about Chicago parks today, the film spawned the production of a companion short, “Jardincito,” as well as numerous speaking engagements, on the power of nature to help one find their voice, grow as an artist and become a powerful activist, like Jens Jensen.
Carey developed her political savvy as Creative Director of Adelstein/Liston (A/L Media), a major political media firm in Chicago, working with federal, state and judicial races, public health campaigns (organ donation, stop smoking Chicago, EPA, ride-sharing) and corporate clients such as NEC, FMC and Allstate. Her multi award-winning Gift of Hope campaign helped Illinois reach the highest organ donor registry in the nation. Today, Lundin is developing a campaign to get out the vote called FlipItBlue.
Lundin has held various managing producer roles for television series such as: Unsolved Mysteries, Treasure Hunters Roadshow, America’s Best Bites, Phenomenon: The Lost Archives, Interactions in Science, Technology and Society and the Emmy nominated, CPS Right Now.
Lundin has bachelors from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in History and began her career at Wisconsin Public Television in Madison.
In 2008 Citizen Kate stormed America with her odd form of personal journalism. She was hailed as "the future of political journalism" and "a female Jon Stewart".
