Josh Grode
Alex J. Berliner
United States

Legendary Entertainment



In 2019, Grode led Legendary to its first profitable year in more than a decade. But perhaps more significant is the early leadership role he took during the pandemic, partnering Legendary with pro bono legal collective Public Counsel to help industry workers fired or furloughed because of COVID-19 get unemployment benefits quickly. He formed a task force of experts to develop safe set protocols enabling the second season of its Amazon series “Carnival Row” to be one of the first major productions to resume shooting. Prior to joining Legendary as CEO in January 2018, Grode was a partner at the law firm Irell & Manella and helped craft deals for companies including A24, Lionsgate, Marvel, Miramax, Summit Entertainment and Legendary’s largest shareholder, the Wanda Group.
