Netflix’s global production chief to exit as part of regional overhaul

Stranger Things

Netflix’s global head of physical production is leaving the streamer, following an exec restructuring.

Ty Warren had been in the role for more than five years but is to depart as the SVOD shifts its focus on creating region physical production teams, rather than a worldwide division.

Warren had worked on shows including Stranger Things and The Crown during his time at Netflix, which he joined following previous roles at Legendary Pictures and DreamWorks Studios.

Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s co-CEO and chief content officer, said: “Over the past five years, Ty has made tremendous contributions to Netflix, building our physical production team from the ground up and producing shows and films at extraordinary scale and quality. We wish him the best in his next chapter.”

His departure follows that of VP of production Momita Sengupta, who joined Lucasfilm. The Hollywood Reporter broke news of Warren’s exit.
