The three-page memo dated July 2012, which Variety reported on in an article published today, is said to cover “a range of sensitive issues pertaining to how two of Hulu’s parent companies, News Corp. and Disney, plan to transform the streaming service” and starts off with two very blunt bullet points:
“Outline transition plan for new CEO. Discuss potential candidates and process.”
It’s not clear whether the memo is meant to plan for a departure initiated by Kilar himself, or one initiated by Hulu’s board. Reportedly, Hulu did not respond to Variety’s requests for comment.
The Variety piece has a full rundown of the memo and the current state of affairs at Hulu — it seems like the potential CEO departure is one of many moving parts at the company these days, and they’ve got an exhaustive report of the situation. More analysis will be coming from our TechCrunch’s resident Hulu expert Ryan Lawler.
