WBD Alum Sara Kozak to Launch New Venture


Sara Kozak, a 17-year alum of Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD), has unveiled plans to launch Hudson House Media later this year to offer management consultancy and strategic troubleshooting, with an emphasis on unscripted content.

Kozak, who led nonfiction content for ID and Max as senior VP and head of production at WBD, oversaw thousands of hours of unscripted content, including Evil Lives Here, House of Hammer and The Curious Case of Natalia Grace. With Hudson House Media, she will advise production executives on all aspects of team building and management, as well as commissioning and development.

Before joining the ID team, Kozak was VP of production for Discovery’s Emerging Networks, where she executive produced series such as Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman. prior to that, she was a senior executive producer for Discovery Channel and helmed a range of series and specials, including Two Weeks in Hell, Destroyed in Seconds and UFOs Over Earth. She also served as senior executive producer for TLC and helped launch Say Yes to the Dress in 2007.

Prior to her tenure at Warner Bros. Discovery, Kozak was a series producer for BBC Productions USA and participated in the launch of TLC’s What Not to Wear and three seasons of While You Were Out. In 2002, she series produced the first season of Saturday Kitchen for the BBC.

Kozak left WBD in 2023 to further her passion for writing and developing diverse programming across all mediums.

Hudson House Media will open for business in summer 2024.

“Fifteen years with ID, the world’s most successful true-crime network, has been invaluable experience, but I’ve also helmed historical and military docs and spent years as an exec on successful formats for Discovery Channel and TLC, not to mention several years producing highly successful food programs at the BBC,” Kozak said. “I want to use this abundance of experience, team building and management to good use in the future, whether it’s helping U.K. production companies expand into the U.S. market or simply troubleshooting a series or feature doc.”
