The world is getting smaller. No, it’s not about globalization, but the fact that there used to be seven major U.S. distribution studios, and now there are only five, since Paramount has been incorporated into ViacomCBS Global Distribution, and 20th Century Fox has been rolled into Disney Direct-To-Consumer & International (even though FOX Studios still exists — if only as a production entity). The following lists reflect the 2020 executive rosters, and they will be updated early May 2021.

In the past, this section of VideoAge‘s May edition was one of the more consistent, with the international sales executive rosters changing little year after year. But this year, new developments will undoubtedly make the studio executive rosters one of VideoAge’s most popular features among international content buyers, as the rosters reflect the most recent changes in the industry.
