Hulu has transformed itself from a fledgling streaming service to an actual content provider, but not without difficulties. Fast Company profiles Hulu CEO Jason Kilar and his struggles against the studios to bring the service to where it is today while transforming the landscape of internet video.

Despite the ever present threat of studio intervention, Kilar remains optimistic about Hulu’s future.
