Last December, Variety exclusively revealed that Sue Bird, a five-time Olympic gold medalist and basketball legend, and Megan Rapinoe, a two-time FIFA World Cup-winning soccer superstar, were expanding their influence beyond sports to launch A Touch More in partnership with Togethxr. The company’s name, “A Touch More,” reflects its core mission to bring more understanding, connection, entertainment, and conversation to the evolving media landscape by providing a platform for underrepresented voices from women, LGBTQIA+, and BIPOC creators.
Camille Bernier-Green, an accomplished figure in the industry, joins the A Touch More team at a crucial juncture. Her appointment follows Megan Rapinoe’s recent retirement from international soccer, where she led the US Women’s National Team to a triumphant 2-0 victory over South Africa.
In a statement, Camille Bernier-Green expressed her excitement about joining the dynamic team: “I’m excited to be joining such a powerful team and to work alongside Megan and Sue. The A Touch More team is passionate about telling stories from underrepresented communities and creating space for more voices, an effort that is near and dear to my heart. I’m thrilled and humbled by this dream opportunity.”
As head of development, Camille Bernier-Green will play a pivotal role in building A Touch More’s inaugural programming slate, encompassing both scripted and unscripted projects. Notably, A Touch More made a mark with the successful launch of the ESPN “30 for 30” podcast “Pink Card,” a four-part series produced by Peabody-winning producer Shima Oliaee. The podcast delved into the lives of women in Iran who were fighting for the right to watch soccer.
Bernier-Green’s impressive career path includes her previous role as the director of documentaries for Disney’s Onyx Collective. She has also produced and developed projects for renowned networks such as Bravo, HBO, Facebook, and ABC News. Her portfolio boasts contributions to notable projects like the Emmy-winning series “Red Table Talk,” the Peabody Award-winning documentary “Aftershock,” Critics Choice award-nominated “9 Months with Courtney Cox,” and the docuseries “Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields,” which currently stands nominated for two Primetime Emmys. Notably, Bernier-Green also produced “Miso,” an independent short film that explores the evolving friendship between a woman and her doula.
With Camille Bernier-Green at the helm of development, A Touch More continues to make strides in its mission to amplify underrepresented voices and reshape the media landscape with compelling storytelling.
