In the News: Alumnus Earns Golden Globe for 'Mr. Robot'

Posted: January 11, 2016

Kyle Bradstreet, '02, '04, can now add “Golden-Globe winner” to his already impressive list of credits. Bradstreet is a writer and supervising producer for the USA Network series Mr. Robot. The show took home the “Best Drama Series” award at last night’s ceremony

"It is such a great honor to work with these great people and to be a part of the series," Bradstreet told the Democrat and Chronicle. "I consider myself extraordinarily lucky to be able to write for a living and to receive an award like this is astounding."

Bradstreet, who earned a bachelor's degree in English with a minor in theater and a master's degree in multidisciplinary studies, used what he learned at Buffalo State to launch a successful writing career.

"I was blessed with exceptional professors who taught the great literary works from positions both analytical and creative, the importance of multiculturalism in the arts, the fundamental rules of storytelling and, later, how to break those rules to shape my own work," Bradstreet said in an interview for SUNY’s Big Ideas blog. "I was encouraged to learn as much through life as through research—a balance I continue to implement in my day-to-day work."

Bradstreet's other television credits include writing and producing the popular BBC-America television series Copper, created by Buffalo State alumnus Tom Fontana, '73, and work on the screenplays for Borgia: Faith and Fear, HBO's Manhunt, and NBC's The Philanthropist.

In addition to his television work, Bradstreet is the author of the staged plays Honor Thy Mother, From Prague, and Alcohol, and many one-acts. His fiction writing has been published in several literary journals.

Congratulations, Kyle!
