Former Hulu CEO Mike Hopkins Will Head Up Amazon's Video Studios

The Sony Pictures TV chairman is returning to the streaming world

Mike Hopkins, who left Hulu in 2017 to head up Sony Pictures Television, is headed back to the streaming world—this time in a top role for Amazon.

He will oversee its Prime Video platform and Amazon Studios (encompassing its movie and TV production arms) as an svp, beginning later this month, the company announced Monday.

Hopkins, who will report directly to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, will assume some of the duties previously held by Jeff Blackburn, Amazon’s svp of business development and digital entertainment, who is on a yearlong sabbatical.

Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke, who had previously reported to Blackburn, will now report to Hopkins, as will Greg Hart, the head of Prime Video.
