A longtime Hollywood player, Mike Hopkins joined Amazon in early 2020 as the top entertainment exec at one of the world’s biggest companies, reporting directly to Jeff Bezos. Replacing Jeff Blackburn, he has oversight of both Prime Video and Amazon Studios — both big responsibilities. In Hopkins, the e-commerce giant tapped a tenured industry pro. He previously served as CEO of Sony Pictures Television, where he streamlined operations, and was chief exec for four years at Hulu, which he launched into live TV distribution. Earlier in his career, he was president of distribution for Fox Networks. At Amazon, Hopkins has a global purview, charged with bringing new content and services to the company’s base of more than 150 million Prime members.
