We All Want To Be Interested

We’ve made the leap from an idea-centred business to a people-centred business. Instead of developing ideas, we develop people. Instead of investing in ideas, we invest in people. We’re trying to create a culture of learning, filled with life-long learners. It’s no trick for talented people to be interesting, but it’s a gift to be interested. We want an organization filled with interested people.

“It’s Not TV…It’s HBO”

We’re actively looking for new cliffs to jump off. We’re doing things nobody else will do, because they can’t chase us into those spaces. We didn’t get here by playing by the rules of the game. We got here by setting the rules of the game.

— Chris Albrecht, president of original programming, HBO
