Helman added, “The last six years at Hulu have been a true labor of love, as I’ve had the privilege of working with artists and executives who inspire me on a daily basis. Hulu is more than just my home; it’s a place where creators can produce their very best work with the support of our unmatched content team and the far reach of The Walt Disney Company. I’m thrilled to be given this incredible opportunity and deeply grateful for the votes of confidence from Dana Walden and Craig Erwich.”
