Jay also produced successful advertising for stage hits including THE CHORUS LINE. As a partner, then principal in his own agency Jay worked in entertainment advertising for many years until eventually joining his wife’s TV production company in the production of IN THE MIX, a series that ran on Public Television for 15 years.
