Less than a year after he was named CEO at Imagine Entertainment, Charlie Corwin has left the company, according to an individual with knowledge of the situation.

The former co-chairman and co-CEO of Endemol Shine North America left Imagine in December to explore a new venture, which Imagine invested in.

Corwin was brought in as CEO of the production company in January 2017, and served under Imagine founders Brian Grazer and Ron Howard. His hiring came after the company secured a $100 million investment from the Raine Group.

Imagine recently did production work on “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” which Howard was brought in to direct. The film is set to be released in theaters May 25.

In the pipeline Imagine has the second season of National Geographic’s “Genius,” coming up April 24, as well as the Mila Kunis-led comedy “The Spy Who Dumped Me” for Lionsgate, slated for Aug. 3.
