Big media’s massive restructurings and pandemic-driven business troubles have thrust experienced talent in the TV and film industries onto the job market in 2020.
Across the US media landscape, a staggering 28,637 jobs were slashed this year through October, compared with around 9,198 during the same period last year, outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc. found.
Yet, companies in and outside the media industry are still searching for talent with media skillsets, top headhunters told Business Insider earlier this year. Apple and Disney each recently hired key former execs from shuttering streaming startup Quibi, as an example.
Business Insider is looking for the top free agents in the TV, film, and streaming-video industries. These are respected executives who may be looking for their next opportunities.
These pros understand the shifting media landscape, are trusted advisers to CEOs and boards, and have a track record of leading key business units or projects within studios and networks.
This list will be based on nominations as well as our own reporting. We will consider their previous jobs, their personal character, the organizations they’ve represented, and how effectively they’ve delivered results in the past.
The list will include TV and film veterans, but we want to hear about up-and-coming mid-level staffers as well.
Submit your nomination through the form below by 9pm EST on December 14.
