At Riot, we work every day to make it better to be a player. But being a player doesn't stop at the end of a game anymore. As the gaming landscape continues to collide with entertainment, we're building a new team to bring Riot's IPs to players around the world in new ways, and invite new audiences into the fold. This team will imagine and develop custom IP experiences and products - animation, interactive narratives, consumer products, and beyond - that deepen players' and fans' connections to the universe we've created. In collaboration with teams across the organization, this team will aim to show players and the world that entertainment now starts with games.

As the Global Head of Live Action TV, you will report to the President of Global Entertainment and develop scripted television series for Riot Entertainment globally as we expand around the world. You will help build the strategy for Riot's Live Action Content Creation business, an endeavor that is just beginning. You will lead the TV creative development team and all work related to the development of scripted series for the League of Legends cinematic universe and new franchises. You will identify, source, and shepherd creative from idea through delivery. You will provide creative guidance and feedback to show runners on outlines, scripts, and cuts. You have deep relationships within the industry and are well-versed in top artists - writers, directors, producers, and actors. You will use your comprehensive knowledge of programming and the television landscape to identify and cultivate successful partnerships with distribution partners on the production and release of our series. You will work with a broad group of partners including Riot's franchise development, game development teams, esports, and creative leaders within and outside of Entertainment to grow Riot's IP for television.
