With the continued success of the network-defining “Portlandia,” the sketch comedy show “Comedy Bang! Bang!” and “Maron,” DeMontreux has helped IFC become a true comedy standout. And there’s plenty more to come. “The Spoils of Babylon,” premiering next year, features a comedic cast of greats including Will Ferrell, Tobey Maguire, Kristen Wiig, Tim Robbins and Val Kilmer. “It’s a unique and over-the-top take on the classic TV miniseries that I’m incredibly proud of,” says DeMontreux. But the biggest story in cable this past year, for DeMontreux, is personal: Saying goodbye to AMC’s “Breaking Bad.” “I’m mourning the loss of that show like it’s a family member,” she says.
