Before that he was a founding exec at Universal Television Alternative Studio, where he served as executive VP of alternative development and production, overseeing development and release of titles such as World of Dance, Hollywood Game Night, The Wall and Titan Games.

Prior to joining the NBCU family of companies, Guillen was VP of development and production at Telemundo Studios.

Markham said Guillen will play a “prominent role in helping us plot our next phase of growth as the changes taking place in our industry present unprecedented opportunities for Estrella Media.”

Guillen added: “At the current inflection point of our industry, Estrella Media’s agility and array of content-making and distribution assets offer a unique opportunity to foster growth and create a domestic and international footprint across broadcast, streaming, digital and audio businesses.”
