Starz Hires David Weil as EVP and General Counsel, Business and Legal Affairs

Starz has hired David Weil as executive vice president and general counsel, business and legal affairs.

Weil will be responsible for developing the strategic direction of business and legal affairs for the company, including the Starz linear channels, affiliate negotiations, public company compliance management and the worldwide distribution and home entertainment businesses.

Weil is set to report to Starz CEO Chris Albrecht. He will be based in the Beverly Hills headquarters, where he takes over the position from EVP, general counsel and secretary, Steve Beabout, who is retiring after 18 years as general counsel.

Weil was previously CEO of Walden Media/Bristol Bay Productions for 10 years, where he oversaw all aspects of the company’s operations, including strategic planning, production, marketing and outreach, finance, legal and business affairs.

“David is a talented and highly respected executive with a keen legal mind who has successfully dealt with issues and individuals at all levels of the entertainment industry,” said Albrecht. “We are looking forward to adding him to our executive team and working together to continue growing the Starz businesses. Steve Beabout has been an integral part of Starz’s growth and success over the many years he has led the company’s legal affairs. We thank him for his contributions and wish him the very best.”
