President

The door had barely closed on Campbell’s four-year stint at Hulu (the last 20 months as president) in October 2021 when word leaked that she would be taking the top spot at rival streamer Peacock. Subscription rates had spiked at Hulu, bolstered by the pandemic shutdown, which made it the only place most Americans could see the awards-season juggernaut “Nomadland.” But the U.S.-only service had begun to feel like an afterthought at Disney — which became its majority owner with the purchase of 21st Century Fox — as it focused its efforts on the global rollout of Disney+. Conversely, Peacock is a top priority for NBCUniversal, which is growing its slate of originals as well as giving it day-and-date premieres of theatrical releases such as the 2021 horror hit “Halloween Kills.”
