Chairman, Entertainment & HBO Max

In March, Greenblatt segued from a successful seven-year run heading NBC Entertainment to the helm of HBO and WarnerMedia, charged with bringing the companies into the direct-to-consumer streaming realm. The longtime programmer was recruited by AT&T to put its stamp on assets acquired from Time Warner in 2018. Greenblatt brings a wealth of experience as a producer of television and stage efforts, and he married those skills with NBC’s successful series of live stagings of holiday musicals starting with 2013’s “The Sound of Music Live.” He returns to HBO after scoring there as a producer with “Six Feet Under.” Before NBC, Greenblatt had a seven-year run as head of programming for Showtime, and he was part of the early management team at Fox Broadcasting.
