Before WME, Hill worked with producer Stephanie Allain of Homegrown Pictures, known for “Dear White People,” and with producer Paul Hall on films including “Peeples,” starring Kerry Washington, and “Good Deeds,” written and directed by Tyler Perry.

“I was fortunate to watch Dwayne and Dany build an amazing foundation and culture at Seven Bucks and I’m honored to have the opportunity to work with them, the entire Seven Bucks team and WME in my new role,” said Hill. “I look forward to finding new ways to deliver premium content to their diverse and global audience.”
