George Stephanopoulos Announces His Own Production Company inside ABC News

October 15, 2021

NEW YORK – Greek-American TV news anchor and Good Morning America (GMA) co-anchor George Stephanopoulos announced on the show on October 14 that he is launching a production company inside ABC News, the New York Post reported.
“The new outfit, called George Stephanopoulos Productions, will produce nonfiction shows and movies for across ABC owner Disney’s portfolio, including ABC, streaming services Hulu, Disney+, and cable channels National Geographic and FX,” the Post reported, adding that “Stephanopoulos’ new firm was a bargaining chip for the anchor, who was threatening to quit earlier this year when colleague David Muir, anchor of ABC World News Tonight, was going to get promoted to the role of ‘chief anchor,’ which would essentially mean he would be the go-to anchor for breaking and major news moments.”
“The title of chief anchor had been held by Stephanopoulos until then-ABC News president James Goldston told him the title was going to be retired,” the Post reported, noting that “little did Stephanopoulos know, the role of ‘chief anchor’ was given only in spirit to Muir.”
“Former Disney executive chairman Bob Iger had to salvage the situation and offered Stephanopoulos a larger opportunity producing,” the Post reported, adding that “the company has two documentaries in the works at Hulu, Out of the Shadows and The Informant: Fear and Faith in the Heartland, ABC News said.”
“Out of the Shadows profiles Christopher Steele, the former MI6 agent who was the author of the explosive ‘Steele dossier’ about Donald Trump and Russia, which was written in 2016,” the Post reported, noting that “it will debut on Hulu on Oct. 18” and “The Informant, which will premiere on Hulu on Nov. 1, is a documentary about the Oklahoma City bombing.”
“The notion of taking a producer role isn’t entirely new at ABC News,” the Post reported, pointing out that “GMA co-anchor Robin Roberts has had her own production company at the network since 2014… [and] has produced programming for ABC, ESPN, Disney+ and Lifetime, among other outlets.”
