If the ongoing coronavirus has proven anything in the world of entertainment, it’s that consumers will never stop looking for new series to watch. While reactions and ratings to recently released films have been all over the place, it seems that binge-watching rates have only increased. Thus, it makes sense that production companies would look at the future of television as their biggest opportunity. Bad Robot Productions just named a new Vice President of television in Alex Phillips. This is a big deal, as they are also developing a number of DC comics properties into TV series.

Bad Robot Productions Expanding Television Division with Alex Phillips Hire

Bad Robot Productions, now at WarnerMedia, the production company led by jack of all trades, J.J. Abrams himself, has made a name for themselves with increasingly adventurous content. Their biggest successes include Cloverfieldthe latest Star Trek film franchise, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and more. So, it’s clear that they have their film side of things figured out. But what about the television side of Bad Robot?

The company has had a few big wins on the small screen, with their most recognized being Lost. The survival story that ran from 2004 to 2010 revolutionized the water cooler conversation reactions to weekly television episodes and ended with a finale that changed expectations around the world. Additionally, other successes of the production company include Westworld and, most recently, Lovecraft Country.
