Anonymous Content CEO & COO make shock resignation from ‘True Detective’ outfit

True Detective

Anonymous Content CEO Dawn Olmstead and COO Heather McCauley have both resigned from their positions at the US-based True Detective and Mr Robot prodco.

“I can confirm that, effective immediately, I am resigning as CEO of Anonymous Content,” said Olmstead in a statement. “I am proud of all we accomplished during my two years at the company. I am especially grateful to my extraordinary team who worked alongside me to take Anonymous to exciting new levels. I wish them all the best.”

Olmstead joined as CEO since 2020, having previously served as president of Universal Cable Productions, while McCauley only arrived two months ago from her post as Netflix’s VP of business and legal affairs.

The reason for their sudden exits has not been shared by Anonymous, but US media reports suggest it could be related to a settlement being paid by the company to Keith Redmon, the former producer who was fired from Anonymous in 2021 and sued the firm for breech of contract last year.

The Anonymous board of directors is expected to announce interim leadership soon. In a statement, they said: “Thanks to Dawn’s contributions, the company is in a strong position, and we are confident that our team, values and talent will continue to thrive. Dawn has been a valued leader for the past two years and we wish her and Heather the best of luck in their future endeavours.”

Anonymous is also behind titles such as Shantaram and Defending Jacob for Apple TV+ and 13 Reasons Why for Netflix, as well as features including The Revenant and Spotlight.
