One year ago this week, I was unemployed, quarantined alone, & binge-watching Top Chef to stay sane when @WCKitchen offered me a job as their Nashville Project Lead. Helping restaurants and feeding my community has changed my life, and I can’t wait to celebrate by watching this. https://t.co/pH5kvXCMlK

“The one thing I regret was that I was not able to convince the board members to allow Hulu to go across the globe. A head of international was hired at Hulu long before others even thought about going international. This is ultimately a global business, and it is a global business because this is a largely fixed-cost business. The cost for distribution is de minimis. All of the investment is in the upfront fixed costs of the stories that we get to tell. Once you do that, it is far to your advantage to amortize that cost across the globe… for the most part, if you simplify it, this is a business of fixed costs and therefore, going global is critically important.”
– WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar at MoffettNathanson’s Media and Communications Summit reflecting on why Hulu didn’t go international, and why it is so important for HBO Max to do so
