Theta announces RJ Williams, CEO of Young Hollywood, to join Metachain Advisory Council

We’re pleased to announce that RJ Williams, CEO of Young Hollywood, has joined Theta’s Metachain Advisory Council. As media companies begin plans to build on Theta Metachain like Fuse, trooVRS, and more coming soon, RJ will advise on how they can best leverage blockchain technology to reach their users.

Started in 2007 by Williams, Young Hollywood is the Leading Celebrity Influencer and Lifestyle Network for Millennials. Young Hollywood is available on digital, social, television and mobile in over 160 countries and in over 120 million homes. In addition to financing, producing and distributing over 500 hours of original programming annually, the company’s activities include owning and operating ten leading entertainment digital platforms, a 24-hour OTT Network serving nearly 160 million subscribers and licensing the Young Hollywood trademark internationally for a range of consumer products and services. Clients have included Fortune 500 brands such as Subway, H&M, Unilever, Electronic Arts, and Coca-Cola. Young Hollywood also owns a library of over 8,000 hours of evergreen content across multiple genres, garnering billions of views to date via its growing distribution network, which includes Apple TV, Amazon Channels, Roku, Rakuten, Vizio, Samsung, LG, TCL, Xiaomi, YouTube, and over 50 others.

RJis a natural to head up one of the fastest-growing entertainment brands, having grown up in the entertainment industry as a child actor. In 2003, he went on to launch Arjay Entertainment Group, a television production company, with a client roster that included ABC, FOX, CBS, TV Guide and Showtime. Arjay Entertainment quickly developed a reputation for providing the most compelling celebrity programming, and ultimately helped create a new identity for an industry — Young Hollywood.

“I’m excited to work with the Theta team building bridges between Hollywood and the blockchain space,” said Williams. “Media and entertainment are being transformed by Web3 technology, and Theta is leading this change in how users interact with their favorite content.”

Welcome to the Metachain Advisory Council, RJ!
