Reilly

Chief Content Officer, WarnerMedia Direct-to-Consumer / President, TNT, TBS & truTV

Reilly joined Turner at the start of 2015 to revitalize its flagship TNT and TBS brands. As chief creative officer of Turner Entertainment, he’s looking for new ways to leverage content — as seen in the forthcoming transformation of “Conan” from an hour-long show to a half hour — and maximize cross-platform opportunities. Now three years into his tenure, Reilly has launched a roster of successful series, including “Claws,” “Animal Kingdom” and “The Alienist.” He has a reputation as a bold programmer, made all the more solid given his hand in developing such wide-ranging breakout hits as FX’s “The Shield,” NBC’s “30 Rock” and HBO’s “The Sopranos.” The former president of TV at Brillstein-Grey Entertainment, he spent seven years as chairman of Fox. Reilly recently signed on to oversee the creative direction of WarnerMedia’s incoming streaming platform which is set for a Q4 launch in 2019.
