As a reflection of the rapidly changing entertainment industry landscape, Mob Scene, one of Hollywood’s leading entertainment marketing agencies for major motion picture studios, television networks, and streaming services, continues to diversify to meet the current demands of the industry. As such, the company has launched a dedicated Broadcast & Streaming Group, naming industry veteran Cary Sachs to the newly created position of Executive Vice President of Broadcast and Streaming. The new division will build upon – and expand – Mob Scene’s current work within the broadcasting and streaming arenas. The announcement was made today by Thomas Grane, CEO, Mob Scene.
In his new post, Sachs will report to John Zaffarano, Mob Scene’s President, Global Creative Marketing. Sachs will be responsible for leading and expanding the agency’s existing capabilities further into those areas by offering clients trailers, promos and sizzle reels, along with in-house shoots, print, international capabilities and experiential events, including 3D projections, screen installations, cross-promotional events, and domestic/international branding events.
Sachs brings an impressive list of clients to Mob Scene, including Disney Channels Worldwide, ABC, NatGeo, Sony Television, CBS, USA, MTV, ITV, WGN America, Fox Sports, TBS, TNT, Keshet, and Amazon Studios, among others. They join Mob Scene’s existing TV and streaming clients, which include Nickelodeon, Netflix, VH1 and Hulu, to name a few.
Regarding Sachs, Grane said. “Our launch of a formal Broadcast & Streaming Group reflects our increased commitment to this exciting and important segment of the entertainment industry. We are delighted that Cary has joined our team.”
Adds Zaffarano, “Cary approaches his creative work differently through his unique editing style, writing and personal service. His vast experience will help to diversify Mob Scene by expanding our creative capabilities into new areas of opportunity in the Broadcast and Streaming arena.”
Said Sachs, “I am thrilled to join the Mob Scene team, especially because they are making all the right moves in positioning themselves as an exciting media destination for the future. Aside from being known for high-end production, Mob Scene’s considerable offerings will allow me and my team the ability to provide a full-service agency experience for our clients.”
