Scannell has a lot on his plate, including BBC America, BBC Worldwide Productions, digital networks and syndication, consumer products and U.S.-based BBC Worldwide’s global brands like “Top Gear” and “Doctor Who.” Under his watch, BBCA continues to crank out critically acclaimed series, such as its first original production “Copper,” as well as well-marketed British transplants like “Luther” and “The Hour.” This year, the net hit home with conspiracy drama “Orphan Black.” Scannell believes that the best television should be reflective of its audience. “The more you can reflect the diverse voices of your audience in your decision makers, the better your product will be,” he says.
