"kevin kevin meyer" Discussed on The Streaming Wars
"You get a free subscription for every for every new apple device that you you register since on recruits on sworn. Tv's like as a staggeringly low number and they have pretty decent content so If Apple is kid together I can really see them. Exit out of this whole streaming wars. My Apple is myth. The quest it's the one show that if apple streaming service hope it goes to Amazon or somebody to still keeping weird but I love the quest. I think it's hilarious. Show thing the premises little bit. Funny because I like how software it is. Yes there is a quarantine in everyone has to work from home. And it's like I don't know I was offered developer so it's Kinda funny to watch much of Nerdy. Software developers. Try to work from home and so I'm happy from quest. Give me more with quest elephant so much. So what are your thoughts apple especially about the older content. Yes the older content. Might my thing is it would be nice to know what type of older content they're looking for. Obviously than big money draws right. This second are going to be popular TV series. That's are going to garner a lot of viewers just to come. Hbo Max in some ways. Not I wouldn't say. They hedge their bets on friends but they spent a lot of money on friends. Have other shows like Big Bang theory that have within House that they're losing money on by keeping in house? Meanwhile they have other series like everybody loves Raymond which they've licensed over to peacock because it's not as popular as say friends or big. Bang theory that said I think that ultimately it just comes down to you look at. What's what's apple. Tv has a possibility of going out and purchasing and outside of content. That necessarily that isn't necessarily great. There's the only other possibilities is some of the rumors that we've heard in the past. Which is that you know. Mgm was looking for basically backing and apple could swoop in and they could basically by MGM and then own the studio and just had the steal run by itself but have access to all MGM's content MGM still has to this day a pretty decent size library while not as extensive extensive and they don't have as many classics do to the Turner Deal from the One Thousand Nine Hundred Eighty S. There is still a lot of content that MGM has to offer and to this day they still create content on television. Not as much as they once did but they still do. I think ultimately it's GonNa come down to whether or not they can find a good match. I don't know that. Mgm necessarily as the best match. Unless of course they're looking for a studio that they can just outright by. I don't see any other possibility. The only other studios that aren't involved in the stream worst would be Sony at this point in Sony. I don't I don't see that happening. There's maybe some content deals Sony Television does create a lot of content in general but they are typically the ones who are developing stuff. Then selling it off to a variety of different services. I mean a lot of people probably don't even know this. House of cards. The very first Netflix series was actually put together by Sony. Television Seinfeld was a Sony television project. There's a lot of projects at Sony has had a part in over the years so there is the possibility that there's other content out there and the thing is sometimes you don't even think about certain content until it gets announced. I think sometimes their series that are very popular that they go by wayside. Nobody's really talking about them. But the promise when you think about just the staples of television entertainment over the past thirty years. There's only so many that have extensive amount of seasons that really have that audience that you can draw getting something as popular as Mash. Sure is great but is that really going to draw the audience at Apple's looking for I don't think so so it really just comes down to where are they going to seek out this content and then what ultimately are they going to get because it just don't know that there's a lot I mean. They could have put if they were really thinking about doing this. They should have put their hat in the ring for Seinfeld because that would have been a good one to go get but they didn't. So we'll see all right so Over to Disney plus Disney plus has acquired the feature film clouds. This is actually coming from Warner media. But they've purchased it for airing on Disney. Plus there's a Percy Jackson series in development for Disney plus. Probably the biggest news of the week is that the Disney plus had exact. Kevin Mayor has actually left the company to become the CEO over a TIKTOK. What's your thoughts audience bef- before we recorded Destined made a note and our show notes that he has lots of things to talk about the Disney. So I'll just address Percy Jackson bit then let Dustin just rent for a while. Percy Jackson series at Disney plus. This is the perfect type of content. That would be for identity. Plus show got this. You know themes of adventure mystery like a mythic type quality with monsters stuff like that in a really fits in with what they're trying to do. And always the Percy Jackson series would always be better as a TV show especially unlike a streaming platform versus cable. So I'm happy about this Jackson Development because there is a lot of people who like the books and they felt maybe like the movies didn't necessarily do them justice by all Streaming show would do the Percy Jackson series justice. But now it's time for for Dustin. Please tell me why what bothers you about Kevin Mayor Leeann the Disney Company. Here's here's the thing. I was one of the people who sat there instead that Kevin Mayor was probably the one of the best options for a replacement for Bob idea and the reason why is because not only has Kevin Meyer been the head executive over Disney plus which currently is literally the diamond. The crown jewel of what Disney is right now because of the lack of everything else. That's going on now. That's not necessarily anybody spoiled but Disney pluses one of the few places that is still has the ability to make any sort of money and still be able to grow in this situation that we are currently in the issue of course is that Disney as a company is not solely focused on something like Disney. Plus they're focused on other media and they're also focused on the parks and merchandise and that is a big part of their business and Bob Schieffer who ultimately took over as CEO. From Bob Eiger. He comes from the parks and merchandise side of the. What's very interesting about this? I think a lot of people in the tech world were surprised that they Disney. Who seems to be moving forward and forward thinking to the future chose to have someone put into the CEO role of somebody who comes from that older side of the business when it comes to the parks and merchandise not not something for example. Disney plus and things like that. The other thing with Kevin Mayor is that Kinda mayor was involved in every single one of the major acquisitions that D- that Disney has been involved with since Pablo has taken over as CEO of the company. He was involved with the Pixar acquisition. He was involved with Lucasfilm Fox. These are all Emon as that he was involved in. He had a big part in it. Surprising that somebody who is so heavily involved in those aspects of the company and then was put in charge of direct to consumer side of the business with Disney plus. Isn't somebody who Disney decided to go with as their new CEO? That said it's not surprising that when he was passed over that he would leave. Because there's not really anything left for him to do a Disney can't move any further. A person like him isn't going to switch over to the parkside in the merchandise side of the business. That's not what he's going to do. The consumer product side of the business. He's that's not his area of expertise under BOB SHAPE. Pack where he was basically his colleague not now. His colleague is his boss. There's no reason for him to stick around this. Was I think anybody in the tech world would would agree that it was very obvious that there's only a matter of time before he left after he got passed over for the COO role wide. I think it's a big deal is because he is a he has been very instrumental for the last fifteen years at Disney. And I think that's a lot of people assume that because Bob Shaye pack has been in charge of certain areas that bring in a lot of money. That's the reason why he got it. But honestly there are people within the Disney community and the business side. That don't believe about she. Peck is necessarily the right person for the job. But he was in the right spot to move up within the company. So I think ultimately it's it's it's not great for Disney to lose somebody as high on. Who's involved in so many different aspects of the business and growing the business over the last fifteen years? I don't think it's great. I mean the his replacement it was basically his second in charge. They just moved up. They shifted off shifted around all kinds of other stuff. The head of Walt Disney world. The president of Walt Disneyworld moved over to Bob. She picks old job. This was all corporate restructuring at its finest once. Kevin Mir was a resignation was announced. And that he's heading over to tack. It will be interesting to see what happens with that because I honestly feel like. That's again just stepping stone for him. I don't think he's going to be at Tock Very Long. Probably KIND OF GUIDE TIKTOK. Maybe the next couple of years to try to deal with the issues that they're dealing with because he has a great person to help deal with that kind of stuff. But I honestly don't think that he's going to be there very long and it's honestly only a matter of time before he potentially go somewhere else. The one thing that I have heard from some industry insiders that surprising that he wasn't the one that one or media actually picked to become the new CEO at one or media. But I think the only reason he wasn't was because at the time when they were seeking out. Ceo for worm media. His name wasn't even in consideration because a lot of people will just thought he was neck and neck with Bob Shape to take over Disney and he would make sense for him to stick with Disney rather than go seek out job somewhere else and that obviously that hunt happened in occurred and he wasn't involved in the job because he was he was loyal to Disney at the time. So I think it's great for Tiktok. I don't think it's great for for Disney long-term because I don't know this early that his second command is going to be able to do as good of a job that he did. But there's nothing saying that she can't either so we'll see what happens but I think that's Disney as a whole. This was a huge huge loss but it makes perfect sense. That had happened because of the way the cards fell to kind of back off. You said the IT'S A it's sad for Disney to lose a person that Kevin Meyer analysts. Say that they lost two people at the same time like they had eiger retire. Who is leading more into streaming looking to the future I guess and then you also have Kevin Kevin Meyer leaving at the same time. So it's like yeah one person's retiring but really to people left the same time which is kind of a double whammy which is now what they what they wanted. I don't know chip it. Well maybe he will do well for the role but reading through. Eiger 's is is biography almost What what. He came out in some things about him. It seems that Kevin Meyer would be like the spiritual successor to Bob. Eiger in terms of looking to the future pushing Disney in a new direction de leveraging the business just from Mike. You know parks in media also really focusing on film in pushing forward with that instrument services so from that aspect. I think it said that he that he he left. Especially since you have who who Disney pause to two of the massive streaming you know competitors in the market right now and then. He's he's kind of gone so this takes for that. I'm curious to how what is new roles can be at TIKTOK and people. Don't take talk to talk of video. Sharing site were you send people doing funny stuff. I guess and for me personally. It's like a a watchout qube Because TIKTOK and Qube feel like are more more true competitors in terms of like you know where they fit in in in the market verses like qube versus a Netflix. So they're coming over. And we'll be worried about that. I could definitely see Meyer leaving after two. Ipo honestly I could see Meyer Pumpkin that up and then making them look have come out because yeah the the talk appeal has been something that's been on the back burner for Awhile. So yeah overall. This is Ed for Disney Especially where they were looking forward to as a company so it almost makes me question. If Bob Eiger is choice was Kevin Meyer and the boards choice was was sheep and I only say that because the board yeah I mean like I'm not trying to sit here in create any sort of controversy either but the reality of it is that. Why would Bob Eiger knowing what we know from his biography? And the way he's operated his business. And the fact that Kevin Meyer has basically worked alongside him all this time..

"David Fox Julia Guess. Big News in the world. And Bob's Kevin just this week the media industry big news in my world. Yeah so I again. I was on planes this week so I spent some time on a plane. Washing data emotionally processed the galaxy twenty. And then on my flight back. I spent all that time in a plane watching you emotionally process Disney CEO Bob. Idir yeah stepping up. He's not stepping down. Step away. He just he just stepped to a more exalted role. Pulled baller moving the world. Explain what happened so Bob Eiger former? Ceo Snakes it's effective immediately announced that he was taking on a new role. He's the executive chairman of Disney. It's a role he made up. Yeah this is all just like I would like to do it Essentially in his mind he saw it as the perfect time. Post Disney applause. Post everything to go and just work with the creative teams and and focused entirely on the creative side of content at Disney Disney is a content company that makes a lot of sense and announced that. Bob Bob Chapman. I spoke to four Disney people yesterday and attaches last name and got different answers each time. I've ruin I talked to him. Bob Seat is important. Here is his name is also Bob. There's a lot of Bob's and Allen's and Kevin's at Disney. So many of them. There are three Allen's on that org chart and really the face of Marvel is a is a Bob. 'cause it's Robert so a lot of boats in there. Yeah Okay so there's provider and there's bobby see probably see the new guy. He's the CEO. Disney where did he come from? Yeah so he's been with the company for close to thirty years. He's kind of a company man. He was been in every department. He was part of home. Entertainment he was one of the leading executives on getting the distribution deal between Disney and I tunes 'cause he was like Hey I think digital's taken off an apple seems to have a grasp on it So he set that up then he got moved over to consumer products where he went to basically Clean House for. It was kind of like Paying your dues to get into the mall. And he got in He came he cleaned house. He went in and they were very anti-tiger. Because this was post you know a couple of years but post The Eisner Iger Michael Eisner who was the former CEO. Disney Bob Eiger taking over that happening as you guys. Basically he goes and he's like I'm cleaning. House then eventually moved to parks. He's instrumental in setting up the Shanghai resort. Which is a huge resort for Disney And then he became. Ceo that was the guy. He's a guy I would argue. He is not. I would argue people. Disney don't think he's the guy really so this is all very so this is what happened. This is what happened in by the way when I was Julia what happened. She didn't say Disney blogger stepped up. Now there's all this dramatic stuff this history of the new guy. Yeah but there's a thing that didn't happen here. Which is the Kevin Kevin Kevin's Kevin Meyer? Who Runs Disney plus yet? Whoever thought was going to be the CEO right is not the CEO Right. The other thing that happened is that everyone was surprised. Yeah because there is a lot of things that are happening. I had extended his contract. I think he was not even He's got a third. I think our into his contract extended He just finished his book tour. He was supposed to appear at conferences as the CEO of Disney and like a few months Clearly that he might attempt he's not going to be. Ceo So it was just really jarring came out of nowhere. It was a random Tuesday. Everyone I spoke to was just like something is happening. The conspiracy theories that hit my mom's. We're just amazing. Everything from he is going to be. Bloomberg's EP running handed a to Z sick To everything between So there was a lot of confusion over what was happening because it was so sudden and if we remember the last time there was a Disney executive change which I do regular. It was a long long public very bad process. There were it was just bad and Michael. Eisner was ousted and it was a year but they announced that there was a year changed and they were figuring it out and it all kind of move over eventually. This was like I am no longer. Ceo Immediately And that leads to a lot of confusion and scaring the markets. So that you didn't you didn't like my tweet and so I feel like I've justified in making this program you on here to read are bad tweets. So when when when Bob said he was stepping down to. Do you need to go get a drink later because it was so stressful? I did actually. Did you say that? That eiger augured loggers dater. No it looks like a brother to me I want you get the hell go to look at you. Say That because there's a lot of shame there's uses so good but there's this other underlying drama which is happen very suddenly yeah. It's Bob See who didn't who always seemed like he was in the running yet but maybe it wasn't the favorite the guy who runs streaming Kevin. Meyer was supposedly the favourite writing at the GIG. What happened there? So for my understanding. The thing about Bob see is that he is a company man and to an extent. He's an Agar companyman. He's someone who really kind of like idolizes Bob Iger and so he someone that I can mold into what they need to carry out the next ten years of Disney that someone who can then basically deploy what Eiger has set up and just keep that running the really great thing about Eggers said in a call to investors afternoons. Went out that. He's basically made Disney Holloway's autonomous machines. Because the heads that he has set up just are good at what they do. Kevin Feige runs marvel beautifully Kathleen Kennedy and John. Basically run LUCASFILM pretty. Well yes. That's a medium. Let's go down there Sean. Bailey does his job really well and then you've got Kevin Mayor whose exceedingly good at what he does Extremely good and he runs through new. Yeah he runs so his department is direct to consumer and international so. He runs a hot that he would also thou look over Hot Star in India. Like he looks over everything. My assumption based on what people told me is that Bob see gets job because the board really likes biopsy. They like the idea that he can be the Space Disney they like that he can basically companyman Kevin Mayor who's extremely good at strategizing. Who has the probably the best strategist Disney's ever had next eiger? Who came up that way to continue doing what they need him to do. In that's in that's really shaping streaming streaming era like. They need him to focus on that. There are other issues that have come up with mayor that are like people publicly reported. He's very aggressive. He's a bulldog he's kind of like that's his whole stance And that doesn't necessarily gye well with Disney on the public front. When you think of Bob Eiger you think Uncle Bob's what a lot of industry calm right. Because he's just charismatic lovable That works for the Disney brand and Meyer mayor. Sorry is just very good at what he does but is he the face of Disney. That's the question. The board has to look over and clearly. They don't with Bob seat in a surprise for PM Tuesday night announcement. Yeah I mean the great thing is that this is just in tune with what Disney has done. I mean twenty. Five years ago you had arguably the biggest public Disney scandal which was with after their COO. Frank Wells died Jeffrey Katzenberg. I'm WHO's now the head of Qube is now like I'm going to be your second in command. Michael Eisner promised in this apparently on a walk in like Salt Lake City Mike Wiesner goes actually going to do that. And then a few months later Katzenberg is fired and start streaks right and it's a public brawl who either fighting over this. That's how you get Prince of Egypt. Yeah that's how you get a bug's life in and literally the same day same thing happens two thousand and four thousand five right. It's like it's it's this is like the Disney story in a Lotta ways. So you think Kevin says this is the conversation. I had a former exact wanted. Kevin's Kevin Mind. A former executive told me he had a great quote and it was like you know you think of a a bake off in the second place winner doesn't necessarily stay around to see if they can win again. They go and do something else at the same time. You know. Kevin's got a really good position at Disney and he'll still get to work with Agar for the next. You know up until the end of two thousand twenty one so ir yeah. He's On for twenty two months until he added twenty to twenty two months until the end of twenty twenty one. That's his contract. He's executive chairman the CEO reports to him. Yeah it's great. It really feels like they just move some titles around. Yeah Jenny a he a great quote on CNBC. He just went. I DIDN'T WANNA run the company anymore. It was like a mood this yes I'm tired. I don't WanNa do anymore. You've extended my contract so many times already. I mean obviously for it to happen it on a Tuesday afternoon. Something happened right. This is the story was trying to chase. Something has happened for Bob I go. I don't WanNa do this anymore. Like I'm GonNa just take a step back to an extent and focus on creative At the same time keeps what he likes. I think he generally likes me. Think about content and work with Kevin Feige over marble and Kevin Maryland streaming and be able to strategize with them and figure out the next five ten. I think it said Bob Eiger finally. He's a busy guy and so he finally found the time to go watch Star Wars ride skywalker and NOPE. Wow and he's like what would eat into it but they can't Redo your stepping down Disney. Ceo Yeah so he can reboot. That's like Emmy Great. That's the ultimate like he's gotten the board like the masters of the Universe Disney Board Room. He's like I'm GonNa just direct riser skywalker. Actually we're GONNA pull it. We're going to do it next year. I'm just impressed that J.J. Abrams wasn't named the company. The reason I want to talk you about the mechanics of the change. Yeah there's the drama of the characters but Disney is the big player streaming wars. They like you're saying like our strategies set we've executed all the pieces and now it's just about creative also. I would prefer never think about our parks ever again. That's where he's a he's like. I want to run the boring parts. I just want to do the fun stuff. Which again is a mood? I am totally totally by that extremely sympathetic to that idea. But like where does it leave Disney in this moment where there's so much activity in the streaming war right? It's really funny because this happened at a time and I kept saying our strategies deployed. We're on the Disney plus front and while this is happening like yes. They have twenty eight million subscribers. Which is not. They'll do the the in there next quarter they're not going to get twenty million again Although they are launching internationally so who knows maybe they are I was just talking to someone who says they're working overtime on making sure that UK launch goes really well so they've got that but back home when we look at the content on Disney which is what matters. That's all it matters. At the end the day to consumers they don't actually have the strategy in place because to the original series that they came up with for Disney got moved to Hulu The third series. That's just who knows what's going on with is Lizzie. Mcguire big Disney Franchise And now that's suddenly is. No one knows what's going on with the showrunner just said it was considered too adult for Disney. Plus how lizzy McGuire is too adult for Disney dog. I would love to know So if you take out if you actually take out marvel and star wars to an extent Pixar Disney plus does not have much. They have a proud family remake. They have a mighty ducks series and they have a Turner series. I mean I. I love me some tournament but that's but that's it. Everything else is like Marvel and star wars which makes sense but from what I've heard is like the content side of Disney pluses undergoing because they don't have an identity. So what from what I hear from people have said is like I'm GonNa give slots to Kevin Flagging Kathleen Kennedy. You get three or you get to do what you want with it. I don't care that's what people are slots for. Yes so it's like every month or every three months you have something here and we need. We'll bring people in that way but in terms of strategy they actually don't have a great. Shijie place because they set out to do all these Disney plus shows then decided. They weren't made for Disney. Plus they were Hulu shows which is an advantage only Disney has 'cause they have multiple streaming services and now they're moving on streaming services right..
