Media mogul Chris Albrecht, who currently helms Starz after serving as the longtime chief executive of HBO, and his wife, Tina Trahan, have listed a home in Santa Monica for $7.995 million.

The Traditional-style home, built in 2014, opens through a covered landing to a foyer with a winding staircase.

Within 7,756 square feet of interiors are a living room with a fireplace and a formal dining room. In the chef’s kitchen, there’s a large center island and a breakfast nook.


The top floor holds a majority of the home’s five bedrooms. The master suite opens to a balcony overlooking the backyard, where a swimming pool and spa are surrounded by privacy hedges.

In the lower entertainment level, there’s a theater room, a sauna, a wine cellar and a gym.

Albrecht, 65, became the president and chief executive of Starz in 2010. Before that, he spent 22 years at HBO during a stretch when the network released hit shows such as “The Sopranos” and “The Wire.”

Last year, Albrecht made headlines when he hired hip-hop artist Snoop Dogg to do a Halloween show at the three-story home for 75 children. DJ Khaled also performed at the private show, according to Page Six.


Records show the property, which is currently held in a trust, last sold in 2016 for $7.15 million.

Santiago Arana of the Agency holds the listing, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
