Isaac Lee has decided to step down as chief content officer of Univision Communications Inc. (UCI), with plans to start his own production company.
Lee has spent seven and a half years with Univision. During that time, he created and led a joint task force between UCI and Televisa that has generated a pipeline of content. He also initiated the first-ever global pilot season in Spanish-language television for Mexico and the U.S. At Univision, Lee created the Los Angeles-based content development and production hub Story House Entertainment, which produces scripted and non-scripted programming in English and Spanish. He will now start his own production company.
Haim Saban, the chairman of the board of UCI, said: “I want to thank Isaac for leading Univision’s content team with integrity and courage and helping elevate and position Univision in mainstream American media. He understood the relevance that Univision has for Hispanic America and served the audience well. Isaac has vision and knows how to execute. I wish him well and expect more exciting things from him in the future.”
Lee said, “I want to thank my extraordinarily talented and hard-working colleagues at Univision, as well as Haim and the entire board, for all the support I have received in my nearly eight years at UCI.”
