Development and Scripted Production Executive / Management

Based out of Treaty 1 territory, Danelle Granger is proud to be reclaiming and reconnecting to her Métis roots. She began her career in the broadcasting industry upon graduating from the Creative Communications program at Red River College in Winnipeg, Man. There, she majored in journalism while focusing on developing her production skills. Danelle was inspired to pursue journalism and production after seeing the documentary Food, Inc. She continues to be motivated by the passion of those involved in the industry and their commitment to telling the stories that need to be heard. She brings this motivation with her to all of her work. Danelle worked as an editor and assistant editor on Passage à l’âge adulte and seasons 2-4 of Comment devenir adulte. She also combined her editing and directing skills on a short documentary about the history of the Rainbow Resource Centre, a centre in Winnipeg that offers support to the 2SLGBTQ+ community. The documentary premiered at Reel Pride Film Festival.

Danelle joined APTN in 2020 as the programming coordinator for the Central Region. In 2022, she took on the title of development and scripted production executive. Danelle is excited to continue working with emerging and established producers to bring Indigenous content to screens across Turtle Island. When she’s not at work, you can find Danelle doing beadwork, going for hikes on the weekend and doing her at-home yoga practice.
