Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On February 9, 2018, Discovery Communications, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Discovery Communications, Inc. (“Discovery”), entered into the Second Amendment to Employment Agreement with Bruce Campbell, its Chief Development, Distribution and Legal Officer (the “Second Amendment”). The Second Amendment modifies that certain Employment Agreement dated July 31, 2014 between Mr. Campbell and Discovery (as amended to date, the “Employment Agreement”). Under the terms of the Second Amendment, Mr. Campbell’s term of employment will be extended through February 14, 2022. Effective February 15, 2018, Mr. Campbell’s annual base salary will be increased to $1.8 million. Mr. Campbell’s bonus target was increased to 150% of his base salary, with a blended target for 2018 based on 45 days at his previous target of 130% and the remainder of the year at the new target of 150%.
Mr. Campbell will be recommended for an equity grant with a target value of $3.0 million as part of Discovery’s regular annual equity grants, with the equity instrument, terms and conditions and number of units to be based on Discovery’s standard practices and procedures for awards to senior executives. Mr. Campbell will also be recommended for a contract renewal grant of restricted stock units with a target value of $3.75 million, which award will provide for vesting in three substantially equal installments beginning on the second anniversary of grant. The number of shares in the contract renewal grant will be calculated by dividing the target value by the closing price of Discovery’s Series A common stock on the last trading day before the date of grant.
The Second Amendment also provides that the agreement will be interpreted in accordance with New York law.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
