Beginning in late October, Collier will oversee Roku's content and advertising products. A native of New York, Connecticut, he will report to Anthony Wood, the device maker's CEO and founder. The hiring of Collier is the biggest upset yet for Roku's original cast, which substantively includes Strange. Al Yankovic's Story, Kibi Game and Zoe's Christmas Movies. Originals are a priority for Roku, which in November 2021 announced plans to develop more than 50 series over the next two years.
Collier is often considered an old classic of American cinema by a network that literally aired classic American films before a respected dramatic actor. Though he didn't technically greenlight Mad Men, he did host AMC's legendary show. And Collier was part of the executive team that greenlit Breaking Bad, which eventually spawned Better Call Saul (also during his tenure) as well as The Walking Dead.
