CEO / Producer

Since King founded Macro less than five years ago, the multi-platform media company dedicated to projects driven by people of color has received a total of nine Oscar nominations for “Mudbound” (2017) and “Fences” (2016) and acclaim for the surreal comedy “Sorry to Bother You” (2018). It’s a satisfying riposte to anyone who doubted King in January 2015, when he left William Morris Endeavor, where he was the first African-American partner in the agency’s 100-plus-year history. Macro has several projects hitting screens in 2019, including HBO doc “The Apollo,” Netflix series “Raising Dion,” about a tyke with super powers; and the big-screen true-life drama “Just Mercy” with Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx. In February, King inked a first-look deal with Warner Bros.
