Charlie Collier was named Chief Executive Officer, FOX Entertainment, in October 2018. He is responsible for driving the overall creative and business vision for FOX Entertainment – including the FOX network; its in-house unscripted studio, FOX Alternative Entertainment; animation studio Bento Box Entertainment; and free streaming platform Tubi – supervising all content development, creating new strategies for growth and overseeing all of its operations.

Under Collier’s supervision, FOX won the 2019-2020 broadcast season for the first time in eight years and was the only major network to post year-over-year growth among Adults 18-49 and Total Viewers. FOX also ranked as the #1 network in Fall 2020, marking the first time ever FOX won back-to-back Falls.

Collier’s FOX Entertainment also houses FOX Alternative Entertainment, the company’s studio that produces such hit programs as THE MASKED SINGER and I CAN SEE YOUR VOICE, and all-new series THE MASKED DANCER, NAME THAT TUNE and the upcoming series DOMINO MASTERS, which will premiere in the 2021-22 season; the award-winning animation studio Bento Box Entertainment, which produces content for FOX, including the Emmy Award-winning hit BOB’S BURGERS, DUNCANVILLE and the new series THE GREAT NORTH and HOUSEBROKEN, as well as programming for other broadcast, streaming and cable platforms; and Tubi, FOX Entertainment’s fast-growing ad-supported video-on-demand (AVOD) streaming service, featuring more than 30,000 movies and television series, and news content that’s available in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Australia. Additionally, as an integral member of FOX Corporation’s senior leadership team, Collier contributes to the parent company’s growth and continued evolution.

Prior to joining FOX, Collier was President and General Manager of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios, overseeing the creative and business operations of all three divisions. He joined AMC as General Manager in 2006 and was promoted to President in 2008; he added the SundanceTV post to his responsibilities in April 2015. During his 12-year tenure, Collier transformed AMC into one of the most relevant and heralded original programming brands and businesses in television. Under Collier’s leadership, AMC became a global entertainment powerhouse, introducing cultural and critical hits, including the Emmy® Award-winning “Mad Men” and “Breaking Bad”; “The Walking Dead,” the highest-rated basic cable program in the history of television; and “Fear the Walking Dead” and “Better Call Saul,” which stand as the #1 and #2 top cable series premieres of all time in Live + Same Day viewing.

Collier joined AMC in 2006 from Court TV (now truTV) with a track record of driving brand, revenue and business growth. At Court TV, he served as executive vice president and general manager of advertising sales, where he more than quintupled its revenue from national ad sales, dramatically improved its positioning within the industry and played a key role in broadening the network’s appeal beyond courtroom programming and into entertainment programming in the investigation genre. 

Prior to Court TV, Collier held roles at Oxygen Media, A+E Networks and TeleRep.

In 2019, Collier was named to The Hollywood Reporter 100, the publication’s list of the most powerful people in entertainment. That same year, he was featured in Variety’s third annual edition of Variety500, an index of the 500 most influential business leaders shaping the global media industry. Given his prior contributions to the cable industry and his current oversight of FOX Entertainment’s ad-supported streaming platform, Tubi, Collier also was among 2020’s Cablefax 100, which recognizes leaders in the multi-platform space.

Among his civic activities, Collier serves on the board of CancerCare, an organization devoted to helping not just cancer patients, but those around them touched by the disease.  Additionally, he sits on the boards of The Paley Center for Media, the American Film Institute and the NCTA – The Internet & Television Association. He is married and has four children.
