Max Saines, a TV executive at Endeavor Content, has died from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a pre-existing heart condition. He was 28.
“Max was an incredible young man and a tremendous colleague, beloved across the Endeavor Content and WME families,” said Endeavor Content co-presidents Chris Rice and Graham Taylor in a statement. “He literally grew up around many of us, and his boundless positivity, energy and enthusiasm made him truly one of the most wonderful people we have known. We are heartbroken by this loss, and send our sincere condolences to his family and friends.”
Saines began his career in the mailroom of WME before moving to the agency’s TV department. He began at Endeavor Content in 2017 and was an executive in the TV advisory group. Recently, he helped organize a record-breaking event for Endeavor Content at Series Mania in France.
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a disease in which the heart muscle (myocardium) becomes abnormally thick (hypertrophied).
