Steve Mills, president and producer of New Vision Entertainment, has led a distinctive entertainment career, producing more than 600 television movies and mini series. His work on “The Incident” was honored with an Emmy Award. As senior vice president of programming for Qintex Entertainment, he was responsible for the lauded “Lonesome Dove.” Mills has worked with such actors as Henry Fonda, Sidney Poitier, Burt Lancaster, Robert Duval and Anthony Hopkins. His career started locally at KCTV in 1953, but he was soon hired by ABC affiliate KABC Los Angeles as a producer-director-program manager. He attributes much of his success to his “Kansas ethic of honesty and common sense.” Mills has stayed loyal to his alma mater through his support and contributions to the KU’s film and media studies program. Mills graduated from KU in 1951 with a bachelor’s in liberal arts and sciences.
