Sarah Aubrey, head of original content, HBO Max
Aubrey heads up original content for HBO Max, presiding over a robust slate that will offer programming options for every audience segment in the household.
Previously, Aubrey was EVP of original programming for TNT, where she played an integral role in the network’s evolution into one of the premier destinations for prestige original dramas such as Patty Jenkins’, Am the Night, Claws, Animal Kingdom and the award-winning The Alienist.
Under her leadership, the number of women holding jobs at the highest levels on the average TNT scripted project more than doubled. TNT also jumped an impressive 320% on the annual GLAAD TV report rankings for LGBTQ representation.
Prior to joining TNT, Aubrey was a prolific television and film producer, responsible for such projects as Friday Night Lights and The Leftovers while at Film 44, and films including Bad Santa and Lars and the Real Girl before that.

Sandra Dewey, president, business operations and productions, HBO Max
Dewey serves as head of business operations for HBO Max with oversight of WarnerMedia Entertainment’s business affairs and production teams for HBO Max, TBS, TNT and truTV. Dewey also continues to play a key role in the cable networks’ ongoing transition from a linear television company to omni-platform media brands with numerous revenue streams.

Prior to her current position, Dewey served as EVP, head of business affairs for Turner Entertainment Networks and Cartoon Network Originals. In that role she was heavily involved with the growth and strategic evolution of the networks' original programming, as well as its expansion in the global market.

She is also a long time champion of various gender and diversity initiatives at the company, including her role as the founding member of WarnerMedia’s Feminist Fridays, an initiative dedicated to empowering, informing and mentoring women across the organisation.
