Dear Team,

I am writing to you this morning, you have heard the news from me that I have made the decision that the right time has come for me to step down from my post at the head of the Premium Group at the end of the year.

The good news is that it’s not instant and I’ll help figure out the details of the transition.

I am very grateful for the past 12 years and the different positions I have held in this company. It has truly been one of the greatest joys of my life doing what I love to do with you all. Together we have achieved a great deal. Year after year we’ve managed to make and launch shows that defined the zeitgeist, that wowed, delighted and moved our audiences, and that received praise and accolades from our peers.

A love of good storytelling, being excellent, performing and having passion for what you do is what you all bring with you on a day-to-day basis. I was studying film for the first time when I spent a year abroad in Glasgow during college and the kids there could only dream of telling stories on such a large scale to a global audience. I realized that the great privilege of being an American was that when I graduated, I could take my grandmother’s old Buick, drive to LA, and give my dream a shot—no green card required. And you all helped make this dream a reality.

Most of all, I’m so proud of the team we’ve put together. To those of you who joined before I arrived, to those of you who have joined in the last ten years, and to those of you with whom I have only had the pleasure of working closely since the merger: Thank you. We have built a culture of integrity, respect, collaboration and risk-taking creativity. Together we have transformed our entire business model in recent years. And we’ve attracted some of the most talented creative people in the world to work with us.

I am also very grateful for the support of Bob and Shari and my colleagues on Bob’s leadership team. Your personal commitment to the success of this company and the achievement of our individual goals is what you can only expect from your leadership.

So why now? Quite simply: in the past few months I have come to the conclusion that I am ready for the next chapter in my life and career. The industry is changing fast and I’m really excited to see what the future holds. Most importantly, the leadership team, led by Jana Winograde, Gary Levine, Scott Mills and Nicole Clemens, is more than ready. Plans for 2023 are in place, and I believe the plans for the coming year from Showtime, BET and Paramount Television Studios will be the most ambitious and exciting group of shows we’ve ever put on in a single year. I can’t wait to see it.

Know that I will be here during this transition to support each of you to the best of my ability. I’m really looking forward to our continued relationships because that’s really the best thing about working in this industry: the relationships we develop with each other. That and the sheer joy of serving our audiences with stories that they tape to their screens.

Thanks to you all.

David
