MGM up Edwards for TV

Brian Edwards

US studio MGM has promoted Brian Edwards to a role expanding his remit over the organisation’s TV operations, and extended his contract through mid-2022.

Edwards becomes president of MGM Television Operations where he will continue to report to Mark Burnett, chairman of the company’s global television group.

Edwards will oversee all business aspects of MGM’s television and digital productions and join MGM’s corporate development team, reporting in this capacity to Chris Brearton, MGM’s chief operating officer. He will also continue to supervise operations for certain MGM joint ventures, including LightWorkers Media and Gato Grande.

His promotion comes two years after joining MGM as executive VP for television operations at MGM after the company completed its acquisition of United Artist Media Group.

“Brian and I have worked alongside each other for many years. He is a talented executive who understands how this business works and is a leader who will keep us moving forward as we innovate and grow,” said Burnett.

“I’m very grateful to continue the journey with Mark that we started on years ago,” said Edwards. “MGM Television has a terrific creative and business team, and I couldn’t ask for better people to work alongside.”

Prior to joining MGM, Edwards was chief operating officer of the companies belonging to Mark Burnett. The latter was named president of MGM Television & Digital Group in 2015 after the US studio extended its ownership of the producer’s company.
