Jon Wax, head of drama series and movies at YouTube Premium Originals will discuss his originals strategy, and how they are helping to define the future of content, in a fireside chat at Content Canada.
Wax is responsible for building YouTube’s scripted drama slate as well as overseeing acquisition and production of its movie roster.
Since he arrived in late 2017, YouTube Premium has launched tentpole dramas in Step Up: High Water and Impulse, and he’s now at the forefront of YouTube Premium’s expanding programming push with his involvement in the forthcoming drama On Becoming a God in Central Florida, which will star Kirsten Dunst and begin production in late 2018, and Viper Club, a feature film starring Susan Sarandon and Edie Falco that will premiere on the platform in early 2019.
This session is presented in partnership with Lionsgate.
