Following the Lionsgate merger, Hirsch was tasked with integrating Starz into the Lionsgate family in a synergistic way. His commitment to extending the reach of original series including “Outlander,” “Power,” “American Gods” and the new “Counterpart,” along with global investments such as Starz Play Arabia OTT, have raised the company’s international profile. But it’s ultimately Hirsch’s collaborative nature and fondness for strategic partnerships that have led to these successes and will no doubt keep Starz shining bright in the future.
