About Shannon Fitzgerald

Shannon Fitzgerald started her career at the BBC in London, UK at just 18 years of age. She later moved to Los Angeles where she built an extensive writing, producing and showrunning career in both the scripted and reality television genres.

In 2010, she joined MTV as Senior Vice President of Series Development. During her 3 year tenure she created and oversaw shows that aired in 163 countries around the world. Fitzgerald also garnered an Emmy nomination for the It Gets Better documentary series – inspired by Dan Savage’s groundbreaking non-profit organization.

In 2014 she left her MTV post – and linear television – to work in the (then) burgeoning digital media and influencer space. This included Astronauts Wanted – the Sony Music-backed, Gen Z and millennial-focused, digital-first content creation company.

Since leaving Hollywood in early 2017 to work full time as a Democratic creative strategist, Fitzgerald has created content for a wide range of elected officials including Rep. Adam Schiff, and Senator Patty Murray. During the 2018 election cycle, she worked on over 40 congressional and statewide races across the country. In 2019, she served as the National Video Director for Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s presidential campaign before forming the Hooligans with Tim Lim in the spring of 2020.
