Executives to Deliver Broad Slate of Original Programming and Acquisitions Encompassing All Genres

July 18, 2019

Los Angeles - The key creative and business operations and strategy teams responsible for the original programming and acquisitions for HBO Max were announced today by Kevin Reilly, Chief Content Officer, HBO Max and president, TNT, TBS, and truTV. Rolling up to Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, WarnerMedia Entertainment & Direct-To-Consumer, this group of veteran executives has been involved in developing and producing popular award-winning film and television content for the past 30 years.

The HBO Max original programming group tasked with building on the HBO core audience by targeting younger adults as well as kids and families is led by Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content who reports into Reilly. Her new team includes Joey Chavez, EVP of Original Drama; Jessie Henderson, EVP of Original Feature Films; Jeniffer Kim, SVP of International Originals; Suzanna Makkos, EVP of Original Comedy and Animation; and Jennifer O'Connell, EVP of Original Non-Fiction and Kids.

The HBO Max business operations and strategy group driving deals and managing the full scope of programming available on the service also reports into Reilly. It includes Eric Besner, SVP of Business Development and Strategy; Sandra Dewey, President of Business Operations and Production; Meredith Gertler, EVP of Program Strategy and Planning (who reports into Casey Bloys, President, HBO Programming, with a dual function on HBO Max); and Michael Quigley, EVP of Content Acquisitions and Strategy. Patrick Kelly, EVP of Business Affairs, will report into Dewey.

Reilly's executive line-up is dedicated to a robust plan of new HBO Max originals, library and acquired programming which is expected to amount to over 10,000 hours of content when the service premieres in spring of 2020.

HBO Max is committed to delivering IP of the highest quality by closely collaborating with top talent to bring their ideas to life, and then strategically managing that content to build and sustain lasting cultural impact and value, said Reilly. I'm honored to work with this accomplished team of executives who have amassed an arsenal of our industry's most prestigious awards, are innovative thinkers, and trusted partners in which the creative community can put their faith every single day.

Kevin has assembled a stellar creative team for new originals and acquisitions that will make our HBO Max service second-to-none, added Greenblatt. With these originals and the full force of the vast WarnerMedia portfolio, including the might of HBO, I couldn't be more proud of the content we are bringing together across this company that will appeal to everyone in the household.

In addition to these teams, the impressive development and production groups at HBO, overseen by Casey Bloys, President of Programming, and Glenn Whitehead, EVP, Business and Legal Affairs, will also supply HBO Max with a vast array of unparalleled content, with the entirety of HBO's current slate and extensive library - everything from The Sopranos and Sex and the City to Veep and Game of Thrones - included in the service.

HBO Max will also offer key licensed third-party programming and a rich array of content that spans across WarnerMedia's portfolio of powerful brands that includes HBO, Warner Bros., New Line, DC Entertainment, CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV, The CW, Turner Classic Movies, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth, Hello Sunshine, Looney Tunes and more.
