(CEO for Netflix)
Birthday: July 30, 1964 (Leo)
Born In: Phoenix, Arizona, United States
Ted Sarandos is the Chief Content Officer for Netflix, who is best known for creating original content for the platform in the United States and internationally. He oversaw the production of series such as 'House of Cards', 'Arrested Development', 'Orange is the New Black', 'Stranger Things', 'Dark' (Germany), 'La Casa De Papel' (Spain), and 'Sacred Games' (India), as well as original films like 'To All the Boys I've Loved Before', 'Bright', 'Bird Box', and the 3-time Academy Award winning film 'ROMA'. He is also responsible for the company's massive investment in the UK, which resulted in over 40 shows including global hits like 'Our Planet' and 'The Crown'. He, however, faced criticism for signing a multi-picture deal with Adam Sandler, but defended the action stating that Sandler's poorly-received 2015 film 'The Ridiculous 6' garnered the highest number of Netflix viewers in its release-month.
