Although only two months into 2018, Viacom CEO Bob Bakish looked ahead to 2019 regarding rebuilding efforts at Paramount Pictures, while speaking at Deutsche Bank’s 26th annual Media, Telecom & Business Services Conference in Palm Beach, FL. Bakish noted that “Paramount was a mess” at the end of 2016, adding that to revive the studio he “went to my playbook,” focusing on basics like management, strategy and execution. Moving forward, Bakish said, “Our new strategy is not one-size-fits-all. So we don’t want to take financing on any of the branded films, because they are low risk… We’d much rather have partners on higher budget films.” Another key asset for the studio is its revived TV production arm. Bakish explained that Paramount Television is on track to produce $400 million in revenue, this year, from titles like 13 Reasons Why for Netflix, The Alienist for TNT and Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan for Amazon.
