Cassius Michael Kim
Cassius helped create and launch the CNN Original Series, The Wonder List with Bill Weir, a show devoted to examining most beautiful places around the world and how they are changing. He was the senior producer for the documentary program over its three seasons, lead producing half of the show’s twenty episodes — from locations as diverse as Vanuatu, Madagascar and Egypt.

Prior to joining CNN, Cassius worked at ABC News, on the programs Nightline, What Would You Do? and 20/20. Cassius has directed and produced content for MTV, Fuse Music Channel, Billboard and more.

Cassius began his career at the independent film production company, This is That Productions, where he learned about producing from Ted Hope, the current co-head of movies at Amazon Studios.

He is currently filming and producing a documentary for HBO, with noted filmmaker Marc Levin, about Mayor Michael Tubbs and the city of Stockton, California. Cassius is also developing a psychological thriller feature film, Broken Nights.
