LOS ANGELES, Calif., February, 27 2023 — Today, the Sator ‘web3 television’ platform announced numerous media executives and seasoned television executives joining its already impressive Board of Advisors. Jamal Dauda (Fox, Blockchain Creative Labs), Dana McClintock (CBS), Sandy Climan (Universal, Lionsgate, CAA), Charlie Weiss (NATPE, C21), Sherrard Harrington (EONXI) and Priscilla Pesci (MGM, Warner).
Bringing a century of experience to Sator, these respective leaders come from outstanding achievements across television broadcasting, motion picture studios, professional sports organizations, major label music and global content streaming. As Sator CEO, Isla Perfito, notes, “It is humbling to be joined by such a talented group of brilliant minds.”
McClintock is distinguished by 27 years at CBS, culminating with his position as Chief Communications Officer of the Corporation. Pesci’s 20 years of global operating experience has included MGM, Lionsgate, CBS and FOX. For over a decade, Dauda’s innovation has defined the intersection of Web3 and media, recently leading the in-house blockchain labs at FOX. More than 30 years in publishing and broadcast, Weiss brings unparalleled knowledge of streaming and broadcast industries’ key players, from NBC, HBO and Showtime to Amazon, Variety, NATPE and C21 where he currently advises. Lauded for their investments in Dapper Labs and NBA Top Shots as well as their pro-athlete LPs, Harrington and his partner Aaron Wilson open new doors for Sator throughout professional and collegiate sports, sports programming and athlete collaborations. Climan is renowned for his nearly 40-year track record in motion picture production, including Scorsese’s The Aviator, and his senior executive leadership at CAA, MGM, Lionsgate and MCA/Universal Studios.
Adding to the bench of talent advising Sator, these remarkable media veterans, thought leaders and operators are expected to accelerate Sator’s onboarding of content partnerships, licensing and programming growth. Pioneers of Web3 television, Sator builds the infrastructure for film and television expansion into new tech-enabled distribution opportunities. “Sator addresses the scalability problem facing media companies with large slates of content looking to expand into Web3,” notes Sator President and Co-Founder, Chris Martin. Sator’s mobile app already features popular shows and titles streaming right alongside NFTs which can be collected regardless of crypto experience thanks to Sator’s in-app-NFT-purchase feature.
“Excited to bring titles and direct content relationships to onboard titles to Sator,” Pesci comments, “I think advising Sator is synergistic to my ongoing work at Warner and other media companies because Sator builds solutions in Web3 which many executives are actively wanting to implement.”
“Given everything we see throughout the media landscape, this is the perfect moment to re-evaluate the current models and explore how Web3 technology can improve and streamline the relationship between creators, distributors, and consumers of art and content,” explains Dauda. “Sator is beautifully positioned to lead the charge.” As Sherrard Harrington puts it, “Sator takes the meaning of ‘utility in content’ to new heights.”
Sator Network spans mobile, desktop and VR. As Weiss points out, “Joining Sator’s Board keeps me at the frontier of content technology at a time when streamers are actively figuring out the metaverse in terms of distribution, monetization and audience engagement.”
Sator’s Board of Advisors also includes Maggie Wu (Krypital Group), Galia Benartzi (Bancor), Rob Weiss (HBO’s Ballers, HBO’s Entourage), Wayne Lin (Axia8 Ventures), Aaron Wilson (EONXI) and Damien McKay (Universal Studios).
