Browning will be responsible for developing the studio’s film slate.

He was EP on that and Spotify’s hit podcast Archetypes with Meghan. Browning will report to CEO Glen Basner and will be based in Los Angeles.
Prior to Archewell, Browning won the BAFTA Award and was Academy Award and PGA nominated, overseeing and producing dozens of successes for FilmNation Entertainment when he previously led the production team.
