He was the inspiration for the character of George Costanza’s childhood friend Lloyd Braun on “Seinfeld,” but there’s a lot more to the real-life Lloyd Braun than a punchline.
The UC Hastings Law School alum began his career as an entertainment lawyer, but eventually moved over to the creative side of the business. Since then he’s had a hand in developing some of the biggest hit shows in television history, including “Lost,” “Desperate Housewives,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Boston Legal,” and “The Sopranos.” In 2007, after a stint as head of Yahoo’s media group, Braun co-founded BermanBraun, an independent media company.
In the latest installment of “Legally Speaking,” from UC Hastings and California Lawyer, Braun speaks with Hastings Law School Dean Frank Wu about his career and the profound changes that are now rocking the entertainment industry.
