A two-time Emmy award-winning Producer, Lucia Kaiser has spent most of her life working as a top insider in the entertainment industry. She has developed a contact base second to none.
After early completion of her academic studies, Lucia accepted an offer that launched her celebrated career in the entertainment industry spanning over forty years. Beginning with a lengthy tenure on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, she was the first woman executive and the show's publicist/talent coordinator.
Her vision in helping develop new entertainment projects is genuinely exceptional. A woman of far-reaching influence with a rich philanthropic background, in 2009, she was honored in New York as a recipient of the "Pioneer of the Arts" Award presented by famed actor, Geoffrey Holder, in recognition of her enormous contributions to the entertainment world. Lucia was a keynote speaker at the United Nations Youth Assembly, inspiring youth worldwide to make a difference beginning with their local communities.
Amid her flourishing film career in New York City, while on a leisurely trip in Hong Kong, Lucia was persuaded by the martial arts legend Bruce Lee to run his film company. After much deliberation, Lucia left New York City to serve as the only female President of Bruce Lee's film company in Hong Kong. She successfully oversaw the production and distribution of some of Lee's most famous films, including negotiating a distribution deal with Warner Brothers for the worldwide box office hit "Enter The Dragon."
Kaiser has raised millions of dollars for a host of humanitarian projects, including her role as Chairperson of the Democratic Party during her many years in Hawaii. As co-founder of the national radio program, "You Can Make A Difference," the show was broadcast to over seventy independent radio stations across the U.S., creating a worldwide networking organization that linked individuals and groups to a host of charities dealing with a variety of social concerns.
Recognized by President George Bush as part of the "Points of Light" program, they were recognized by every major political force in the nation. Kaiser also produced the national, award-winning documentary, "Hawaii Files: Journey From Homelessness," which received commendations by the State of Hawaii Legislature, Governor John Waihee, Mayor Frank Fasi, the City Council of Honolulu and the Telly Awards.
Lucia Kaiser received a "Lifetime Achievement'' Award during the Cannes Film Festival on July 13, 2021, to honor her for breaking down barriers for women throughout her entire life.
