Brian Tannenbaum joined Quibi, Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman’s mobile, premium start-up venture in the fall of 2018. Quibi brings together the best of Silicon Valley and Hollywood to create the first entertainment platform built for easy, on-the-go viewing. A key member of the content team, Tannenbaum guides the alternative programming on the platform - from development through production.
Prior to joining Quibi, Tannenbaum served as Senior Vice President of Creative and Business Affairs, Alternative Programming at Lionsgate. During his tenure, he guided the development and production of series for Lionsgate’s fast-growing alternative television business, including Kevin Hart: What the Fit (YouTube), Selling Sunset (Netflix), as well as You Kiddin’ Me (Facebook Watch), which he executive produced alongside Kim Kardashian West. Combining the responsibilities of a creative and business affairs executive, he also oversaw and negotiated all unscripted network agreements across broadcast, cable and streaming platforms on behalf of the studio.
Mr. Tannenbaum started at Lionsgate in 2011 as an intern in business affairs, working for his mentor, Lionsgate Television Group President Sandra Stern, during his summers off from the University of Pennsylvania.
