Andy Forssell, a media veteran whose resume includes a stint as Hulu’s CEO, is moving to Fullscreen, the video service owned by Peter Chernin’s Otter Media.

Forssell will be Fullscreen’s chief operating officer, reporting to CEO and founder George Strompolos. Last year, Forssell took the CEO spot at ShowYou, a video aggregation app.

Fullscreen started out as a video network that did all of its business on YouTube, but like its peers, it is starting to expand to other platforms and has announced plans to launch its own subscription business. In 2014, Otter Media, which had already invested in Fullscreen, acquired a majority stake in the company.
