THE Co. Co-Founder Justin Hochberg Exits Shingle (Exclusive)

THE Co.'s website scrubbed of Hochberg's name

THE Co. co-founder Justin Hochberg is parting ways with his production company and partner Charlie Ebersol, Variety has learned.

Known as the Hochberg Ebersol Co. (THE Co.), Hochberg founded the shingle, which focuses on unscripted fare, with Ebersol in 2010. Since its inception, THE Co. has launched programs including “The Moment” on USA and TNT’s “The Great Escape.”

As Hochberg exits THE Co., Ebersol will take the reins and continue to lead the shingle. THE Co. will also change its name to “The Co.” to reflect Hochberg’s departure.

Hochberg is developing a branded entertainment skein with a Fortune 500 company, according to sources, and has the Stateside rights to several international formats.

While it is unclear what led Hochberg to ankle his company and part ways with Ebersol, the shingle’s website has been virtually scrubbed clean of Hochberg’s name. Site’s “About” section now reads: “THE Co. was founded in 2010 by television/film producer Charlie Ebersol and Mike Lanigan,” with no mention of Hochberg in the entire company bio.
