The new global independent television studio was formed in February in partnership with TPG Growth with the goal of developing and producing drama and comedy television programming for the multi-platform U.S. television market.

Coming off a five-plus year tenure at Bluegrass, Phung will oversee the development of content across all genres and will work closely with talent to nurture and develop commercial returning series and limited-run event programming for traditional broadcast and cable networks, OTT content providers, and premium pay services.
