Few cable nets have undergone a transformation quite like IFC. What started as a sponsor-driven, indie movie network has shifted over three years into a mecca for outlandish originals and groundbreaking comedies. This eccentric evolution, birthed and nurtured under Caserta, has carved out a defining space on television. Besides “Portlandia’s” year-to-year ratings increase, Caserta looks to keep the weird coming with eleven new projects in the pipeline. With comedy woven into her DNA, it’s no surprise she envies the position of Lorne Michaels. “Who wouldn’t want to run ‘SNL’ and work with Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers?!” Caserta asks.
Hands down, Lorne Michaels. He gets comedy and comedians and has the best gig in the business. Who wouldn’t want to run SNL and work with Jimmy Fallon AND Seth Myers?!
