Apple has Poached 2 Sony TV Execs

Apple has Poached 2 Sony TV Execs

Apple is hiring two top TV content executives away from Sony. This move makes a whole lot of sense, if Apple is serious about growing their original content arm beyond the handful of music-related shows they offer in Apple Music.

Peter Kafka reporting for Recode:

"For years, Hollywood has heard rumors that Apple might want to make its own TV shows and movies. Here’s a sign that Apple might indeed be serious about this stuff: It has hired Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg, two of Sony’s top TV executives, to run video programming, a new job at Apple.

"Both men are longtime Sony veterans, who have helped make some of TV’s best-known and most popular shows, including AMC’s “Breaking Bad” and ABC’s “Shark Tank.” At Sony, they jointly held the title of president; at Apple, they’ll report to media boss Eddy Cue."
