“We couldn’t be more thrilled to officially welcome Kevin into the family. Throughout his hard work with us at WME, Kevin has proven a deep understanding of the Seven Bucks ethos and ability to make groundbreaking and ambitious projects happen. He’s been a key driver of our growth, and we’ve been huge fans of his talents from the moment we first met,” said Seven Bucks Productions co-founders Dany Garcia and Dwayne Johnson.

 

Hill was deeply rooted in Seven Bucks’ unscripted business at WME and helped package several of the company’s projects including the highly anticipated forthcoming NBC series “The Titan Games” and BET’s “Finding Justice,” both set to premiere in early 2019.
