How Philanthropic Is The Philanthropist?

Washington, DC 20005
Teddy Rist -- a globe-trotting corporate mogul who drinks too much and respects women too little -- is an unlikely star for NBC's summer series THE PHILANTHROPIST (Wednesdays, 10/9c). And yet each week he transcends his self-indulgent life long enough to perform a charitable act in exotic settings, with all the brazenness and derring-do of a James Bond movie. What does the professional world of philanthropy make of this version of its work?
On July 21, 2009, the Bradley Center for Philanthropy and Civic Renewal and The Chronicle of Philanthropy co-hosted a panel discussion featuring The Philanthropist co-creator, executive producer, and writer TOM FONTANA along with the Council on Foundation's STEVE GUNDERSON; Ensemble Capital Management and TacticalPhilanthropy.com's SEAN STANNARD-STOCKTON; and The Chronicle senior writer IAN WILHELM. The Bradley Center's WILLIAM SCHAMBRA moderated the discussion.
