Carnegie Mellon University's first network, primetime television commercial aired on Sunday, June 8, 2014 during the Tony Awards broadcast on CBS.
2013 Tony Award-winning star of "Kinky Boots" and CMU alumnus Billy Porter narrates the animated spot, which showcases a selection of CMU's most notable accomplishments in the arts, business, sciences and technology.
The commercial also recognizes the Tony Awards, Juicy Couture, which was co-created and co-founded by CMU alumna Gela Nash-Taylor (A'78), and celebrated artist and CMU alumnus Andy Warhol (A '49).
Carnegie Mellon University is the exclusive higher education partner of the Tony Awards. As part of the collaboration, the two organizations launched the Tony Honor for Excellence in Theatre Education, the first national recognition program to honor kindergarten through high-school (K-12) theatre educators.
