Since its inception, AWA has created over 40 original series, and set up numerous film and TV projects with major entertainment companies including Warner Bros. Discovery and Fremantle.
AWA Chairman Jon Miller made the announcements to the staff today, saying, “I’m thrilled to welcome Matthew to the new position of Co-chairman where he will oversee all company operations and focus on future growth in Publishing, Film & TV, and the opportunities enabled by Web3.” Miller added: “Bill has played a valuable role in AWA’s inception and pursuit of its mission to produce bold, original stories. I wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
