M!BIO

Emmy and Cable Ace Award nominated producer/director, Moses Edinborough, started his career in New York City at the newly launched cable network MTV. At MTV he produced such seminal shows as: “Yo! MTV Raps,” “Unplugged,” and created “Fade To Black” a/k/a “MTV Jams.” While there he worked with talented artists like: Will Smith, Mark Wahlberg, Ben Stiller, P Diddy, Collin Quinn, Queen Latifah, Tupac, LL Cool J and also Jennifer Lopez. Moses went on to executive produce the “One Night, One Star” Showtime concert series with Usher; and executive produced and directed “Interscope Presents The Next Episode,” the critically acclaimed “8 Mile” documentary spin-off starring rap star Xzibit. He received director and executive producer credit on Tribune Broadcasting’s “The Apollo Comedy Hour;” Comedy Central’s “Two Drink Minimum” and VH1’s “Buster’s Happy Hour” staring Buster Poindexter. Moses is proud to count the late Ted Demme as his first creative partner, and one of his closest friends and earliest influences.

After leaving New York for the West Coast, as VP/Sr. Creative Director responsible for annual marketing budgets of $55 million and $48 Million, Moses re-did the look of Fox Sports, and helped re-brand the premeum cable channel Showtime, during which time Moses won best director short form two years in a row at the New York Film Festival and International BDA Promax Awards. At Showtime, Moses worked with the team responsible for shows such as Dexter, Weeds, Barbershop Californication and Ray Donovan. He recently created “Cool City Fables,” a first of its kind pop music/TV-drama-hybrid. He co-created “Kimmy’s World,” an animated sitcom featuring comedian/actress Kim Coles and “To Get Her Together” with up and coming comic actress Aida Rodriguez. He has also worked with funny men and comic actors Dave Chappelle, Chris Titus and Mike Epps. His Nike commercials, featuring Kobe Bryant, plus his executive producing of “The Nike Innovators,” series with “The Roots’ Quest Love” are current viral clips on the web.

On background, Moses was a hometown sports hero, starring on the gridiron while earning a B.F.A. in Film & Journalism from Hampton University. He was born on the sunny island of St. Thomas U.S. Virgin Islands the same night his mother saw Cecil B. DeMille’s “The Ten Commandments” and a few years after the release of the original “Ocean’s Eleven.” (For reasons known only to Moses… he finds this significant). Much to his everlasting lament, he still cannot hit a curve ball, and blames the fact that he’s the only guy from the islands who cannot swim on, Steven Speilberg’s “Jaws”. He also believes the French are right about Jerry Lewis.

Moses is a buzz driven creative, with a flight bag of content and more amazing ideas than he knows what to do with, Moses joined with pop star Usher in 2010 to deliver high level strategic marketing tactics and assets directly for the CEO of Liz Claiborne, Art Shapiro on a fragrance line, he was also hands on with the pop star on the Broadway reopening of “Chicago” the musical and together Moses and Usher launched TradeWind Pictures the brand agency and film entertainment group. Moses believes he is a much better producer/director due to all the special people listed above. He continues to be humbled by God’s grace in his life. Stay tuned! Keep your eyes wired for the creative impact Moses will continue to level!
