Episode 218: CEO, Producer, and founder of Marvin Cares for Kids – Jacqui Pitman

On this week’s episode of The 1 Girl Revolution Podcast, we welcome Jacqui Pitman – CEO, producer, advocate for children in foster care, and founder of Marvin Cares for Kids – a nonprofit organization that seeks to provide guidance, resources, and opportunities to foster youth, empowering them to realize their full potential.

Growing up, Jacqui navigated the foster care system from the ages of 7 to 18, and then at 18, she received an opportunity to work in LA. Jacqui has since become a multifaceted powerhouse in the entertainment industry, serving as the CEO of PartyPit Productions Inc. and the visionary force behind Pitman Casting Inc., a premier reality television casting and development company based in Los Angeles. With a career that now spans decades, Jacqui has solidified herself as a pivotal figure in reality television, casting over 500 unscripted shows that have captured the hearts of audiences worldwide. 

Her casting credits read like a who’s who of television, including iconic shows such as The Golden Bachelor, America’s Most Wanted, Price is Right, Let’s Make a Deal, Wheel of Fortune, Blind Date, Kids Say The Darndest Things, Big Brother 2, and Face Off (seasons 1-13), among others. As the driving force behind PartyPit Productions Inc., Jacqui continues to push the boundaries of reality television by developing original concepts for a diverse array of platforms, including Snapchat, Amazon, ABC, CBS, NBC, Bravo, Netflix, Facebook, OWN, HBO MAX, HGTV, Discovery, Food Network, GSN, Syfy, WE Network, CMT, CNBC, Lifetime, TNT, MTV, and VH1. 

Jacqui’s life journey is marked by resilience and determination and her personal experiences have fueled her passion for advocacy, leading her to spearhead annual drives to raise funds for children within the foster care system, and then found her own 501c3 nonprofit organization “Marvin Cares for Kids” which is dedicated to supporting foster children as they transition out of the system and pursue careers in the entertainment industry. Named in honor of her late brother, Marvin, who tragically passed away from a fatal asthma attack at the age of 14, Marvin Cares for Kids seeks to provide guidance, resources, and opportunities to foster youth, empowering them to realize their full potential.
