Haim Saban: The Life of a Media Mogul
A legendary music producer and the Chairman and CEO of multi-billion dollar media company Saban Capital Group, Haim Saban has found success by taking risks. He first made waves in the industry with a show about “five kids in spandex kicking rubber monsters” that most television networks initially turned down, but what ultimately became the 1990s superhero franchise Power Rangers. At Goldman Sachs’ Builders + Innovators Summit, he discusses the origins of that global pop culture phenomenon and the media empire he built following its success.
On producing Power Rangers: “I just fell in love with it. Don’t ask me why, I have no idea…I created a pilot and schlepped it for eight years. Everybody told me I’m crazy… I said, ‘Yeah, I agree with all that, but I believe it will be a success.’”
