Previously he was the SVP of film at SYCO Entertainment, and produced the One Direction movie This is Us. He began his career at Sony Pictures Entertainment as VP of production.
In his new role, he will bring the prodco’s originals entertainment into more reality, music-based and pop culture, and support the newly formed branded content division. Milano will report to Hecho Studios resident Briony McCarthy.
“Adam is both radically in tune with culture and a consummate experienced creator and producer,” said McCarthy. “The brands we work with are hungry for quality content so we’re growing fast and Adam will be growing with us.”
Last year, Hecho Studios appointed Evan Rosenfeld to head of documentary and TV.
