Atrium TV’s Jeremy Fox & Sir Howard Stringer
By Anna Carugati
Atrium TV, a “commissioning club” set up to create premium drama content for regional OTT services and telcos, was conceived by Jeremy Fox, the CEO of DRG; Sir Howard Stringer, former chairman and CEO of Sony Corporation and former president of CBS; and Jakob Mejlhede Andersen, the executive VP and head of programming and content development at MTG. Atrium TV’s goal is to help platforms access high-end content with budgets in the $5-million-per-hour range that will drive subscriptions.
Drawing on their unique experiences and perspectives of the media business, Stringer and Fox, who have known each other for years, discuss with TV Drama Weekly how Atrium TV is set up.
