Founder at Skyrocket Inc
Creator and producer of celebrity interview show The Red Booth - quickly growing it from local TV to National Cable to now being broadcast in multiple countries - Quigley’s aptitude, talent, drive and passion is the force behind Skyrocket’s imminent world-wide presence, as she works towards taking the company public.
Quigley’s lifetime of experience in the media industry began with print and runway modeling as a teen. Her work soon evolved into writing and directing short films and acting on numerous TV shows airing on HBO and airing on other national and international networks.
In 2006 Quigley formed Druid Pictures which was the company which helped develop several feature films and then went on to produce the national TV Show The Red Booth, where she not only served as CEO but was involved in all aspects of film development and production, from financing to distribution and more.
Building upon these successes with Skyrocket, Quigley’s vision is to establish a global media distribution platform that provides independent creators with maximal direct access to television distributors and an arguably unprecedented share in the revenues of their own projects. Through Skyrocket's music division Andromeda Records -- which Quigley created to help serve artists in the music field -- Skyrocket will do the same for those in the music industry.
Starting with branded channel Entertainment Africa which Quigley founded in 2020, to bring film and TV series made by the underserved community of African filmmakers directly to African and international markets, and now launching independent content picked up and distributed by Skyrocket for the international market throughout the major continents of the world, while growing the productions of Druid Pictures from one national TV show to five planned original series in 2021, Skyrocket is actively working on M&A to bring in renowned media companies including other production companies to help with the growth of in house productions, innovative apps for media, and so much more.
