Bennett has parlayed viewers' innate love for
mystery and suspense into a thriving member
of the Discovery family. With a strong viewership
among W25-54, ID's true crime slate has
seen 33 consecutive quarters of growth in
primetime for the P2+ audience and shows no
signs of slowing down. The network hit high
notes with its original non-fiction event series
aired in 2016 and early 2017, including " Jonbenet:
An American Murder Mystery, " and will
unveil several new limited event series later
this year including " Son of Sam: The Hunt for a
Killer. " And while ID's wheelhouse will remain
in nonfiction crime series, Bennett has plans to
introduce some scripted project as well.

This trio of execs has
been busy moving
and shaking things up
at Turner-to strong
results. Dewey is
steering TNT and TBS'
bold moves in original
programming, with a
focus not only on the content but on pivoting
from linear-only to a multiplatform business with
multiple touch points and revenue streams. She
closed the deals that paved the way for TBS'
rebrand, including wooing Samantha Bee and
Jason Jones. Under Linn's stewardship, truTV
continues to transform into a creator-driven
comedic hub, with a completely original slate
including " Adam Ruins Everything, " " Impractical
Jokers " and " Billy on the Street " -and big yearover-year
growth across key demos in 2016.
Cartoon Network is also carving out new ground
as an omni-platform children's hub, with Miller
overseeing the launch of new Cartoon IP, including
the new " OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes, " which
crosses the TV and gaming landscapes and is
one of six new series on the 2017 slate.
Dewey Q&A
What inspires you most about this industry?
The kick ass women.
New favorite binge: " Animal Kingdom "

How do you celebrate your birthday? Simply,
with a few close friends.
New favorite binge: " This is Us " ■
