HBO and HBO Max Content Chief Casey: Bloys Has Signed a New Five-year Deal


Casey Bloys, the chief content officer for HBO and HBO Max, has been verified to have extended his five-year contract by the publication Variety.

Bloys renewed his arrangement with the WarnerMedia brands, now owned and operated by Warner Bros. Discovery, which was just founded.

Around the same time, he hired his new boss, WBD CEO David Zaslav, who had received a combined total of 140 Emmy nominations for his work on HBO and Max programs.

The decision to re-sign Bloys comes when Warner Bros. Discovery is looking for ways to decrease costs. Bloys is well-known for being a programming executive who is accommodating to content creators.

The company, formed due to the merger in April between WarnerMedia and Discovery, has committed to locating $3 billion in cost-saving synergies over the subsequent three years.

The firing of numerous executives, the shutdown of CNN+, the removal of written programming from TBS and TNT, the examination of a DC Entertainment makeover, and the suspension of development of original Max content in Europe were among the first moves taken to cut expenses.

Locking in Bloys, who has been with HBO since 2004, for at least five more years, means providing a sense of normalcy and established direction to the prestige brand HBO and the hot, young streamer HBO Max, as well as Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Discovery joint venture Magnolia Network. Bloys has been with the company since 2004. (which he began overseeing this spring amid internal re-org post-merger).

According to Puck, Bloys has reportedly inked a new contract with Warner Bros. Discovery to continue serving as the chief content officer for both HBO and HBO Max for at least another five years.
