Among other prominent roles across a variety of productions. Braugher served as executive producer for Robert Townsend-directed Showtime original film 10,000 Black Men Named George, in which he starred as A. Philip Randolph, alongside Charles Dutton and Mario Van Peebles. 

He made his directorial debut in 1999 with one vignette of the Showtime trilogy Love Songs, in which he also starred.
