Brian Grazer is one of the great visionaries in Hollywood. His film resume includes Oscar Best Picture-winner “A Beautiful Mind,” “Splash,” “Apollo 13,” “The Da Vinci Code” and “Parenthood.” Committed to bringing excellence to all screens large and small, Grazer has also had a hand in some of TV’s most critically-acclaimed shows, like “Arrested Development” and, most recently, “Empire.”
With a storied career that has transcended genres and platforms, the heavyweight producer added New York Times best-selling author to his name with this year’s “A Curious Mind: The Secret to a Bigger Life.” We caught up with Grazer about industry challenges, fun facts and prospects for the TheGrill 2015, taking place October 5 and 6 at the Montage Beverly Hills in Los Angeles. Reserve your spot today.
1. What is one of your biggest challenges in today’s industry?
One of the biggest challenges is satisfying my desire to find great titles. In a world where first impressions and opinions are formed so quickly, it’s increasingly difficult to find sexy titles for movies and TV.
2. What are you looking forward to discussing at TheGrill?
I am looking forward to understanding the ultimate destination platforms for entertainment, and how mobile fits into our lives.
3. What is one fun fact most people don’t know about you?
I like following Hopsin on Instagram.
