This Crystal Award-winning producer who revolutionized drama programming at CBS (CBS Playhouse) and PBS (Visions) in the 1960’s and ‘70’s is virtually unknown today.

Barbara Schultz got her first television job as a story editor on Armstrong Circle Theatre in the late 1950’s. The woman producer on the show, Jacqueline Babbin, explained to her The Rules for Women working in television: You can do casting, story editing, maybe writing, perhaps producing (if you were as good as she), but NO directing. When Schultz did become a producer at CBS in the late 1960’s, women who worked at the network were not allowed to wear pants.

Barbara Schultz is pictured above acting in The Lottery adapted for television by her longtime friend Ellen M. Violett in 1950.
