Since becoming the
head of BBC America
three years ago, Barnett's
ambition has
driven the network to
its best year ever. 2017
saw BBCA achieve its
most-watched month,
quarter, season and
44

Crime continues to pay for Bennett.
In another tough year for linear viewership,
ID continued to buck trends
based largely on Bennett's mantra:
Stay predictable and stick to your
knitting. This directive provided ID
with a top spot on the dial for W2554
- resting at No. 1 for total day in
2017; and #2 for A25-54. Look for
another measure of its success in a new syndicated
series debuting this fall. Latman led the development
of the true-crime, mystery and suspense
programming that kept ID at the top of its game and
Destination America a force to be reckoned with,
before being named GM of Travel Channel in April.
And industry legend Schleiff now maintains his
perch over a quartet of Discovery heavy-hitters: ID,
American Heroes Channel, Destination America and
Travel Channel, which he recently annexed.
Kevin Bennett
What product or service could you not live
without? Iced Tea - if I don't have one in my
hand, I'm on my way to get one.
What's the first thing you read in the morning?
Emails, Washington Post, NY Times, in that order
Last show I binged not on my network(s):
" Silicon Valley "
year in both total viewers and A25-54. Barnett
wasn't afraid to enter into new spaces either,
bringing World Darts Championship to the
network. The program became the highest-rated
darts tournament of 2017. She also celebrated
an Emmy win for " Planet Earth II. " BBCA original
" Killing Eve " has started 2018 off in a similar
fashion, finding critical success. Caserta developed
a similar reputation as president and GM of
IFC, where she shaped a successful programming
strategy and the network's overall brand
identity. She was so pivotal in deals with Funny
or Die and comedy events company Levity Live
that she was just promoted to chief transformation
officer for the company. Juris has continued
to bring success to WE tv with fresh unscripted
originals. Series like " Growing Up Hip Hop " and
" Braxton Family Values " have allowed audiences
to connect with the network and feel a sense of
community. 2017 saw WE tv becoming the No 1
cable network with African American women and
adults on Thursday nights.
