The office opening was attended by Warner Bros. Chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujihara, Executive Vice President, International, Richard Fox, and Executive Vice President and Managing Director, Warner Bros. China, Gillian Zhao.
“Warner Bros. has been producing world-class films and TV shows for almost 100 years, and we look forward to sharing our expertise with our partners in China as well as with up-and-coming talent to benefit the entire entertainment industry,” Tsujihara said at an opening event on Wednesday.
