Katzenberg

Founder / Chairman

With over 40 years in the biz, Katzenberg believes he’s onto the next big disruption. He’s chairman of Quibi — short for “Quick Bites” — a subscription short-form mobile TV startup that has raised $1 billion from studios, tech companies, VCs and WndrCo, Katzenberg’s separate holding company and investment vehicle. After tapping tech veteran Meg Whitman as CEO, Katzenberg is drawing on his wealth of Hollywood experience and connections to get it off the ground in 2020. His company has been inking programming deals with A-list talent, including Kiefer Sutherland in a remake of “The Fugitive” and Sophie Turner in her first role post “Game of Thrones.” Quibi is Katzenberg’s first big project since selling DreamWorks Animation SKG to Comcast for $3.8 billion in 2016.
