Lauren Tempest was named General Manager of Hulu in July 2023, taking on responsibility for the Hulu business and reporting directly to Joe Earley.
She previously served as SVP of Content Partnerships, Acquisitions and Scheduling, where she oversaw Hulu’s robust library of content, working closely with The Walt Disney Company’s content engines including Disney Television Studios (20th Television, 20th Animation Television, ABC Signature), Hulu Originals, FX, 20th Century Studios and Searchlight Pictures, to deliver the most in-demand titles to consumers. In that role, she also worked with the company’s third-party partners to acquire top SVOD titles, which recently included critically-acclaimed and fan-favorite Schitt’s Creek. During her tenure with that team, Tempest was part of the group that established a new strategic scheduling framework and drove partnerships with TWDC content brands as they launched high-performing tentpole titles like The Bear and Prey.
Tempest is based in Los Angeles where she joined Hulu in 2015, after six years with NBCUniversal’s USA Network.
