Why Him? For someone who’s built a powerhouse network of brooding, dark hits—ratings king “The Walking Dead,” The Killing,” “Breaking Bad” and “Mad Men”—you might expect Collier to come from a dark, dark place—surrounded by dark, dark demons. Wrong. Or at least we think so. This always-upbeat former Court TV ad sales whiz is a likeable family man whose only vice is an obsession with sports, which, he says, can be controlled with medication. Hmmm. One night, when “Mad Men” had captured yet another Golden Globe, and Collier’s N.Y. Jets seemed destined for the Super Bowl, we asked which was the bigger thrill? It’s a tossup, he admitted. Well, one thing not up for debate is AMC’s mega-success—and that’s all Collier. Brooding or not.
Apple or Samsung? Speak & Spell.
The one thing I’d do differently if I could go back to high school: Graduate.
My peers would be surprised to learn that I… see dead people.
Appetizer or dessert? Let’s meet in the middle.
The other subject I wish I’d picked for my college major: Chemistry, with a concentration in marketing and distribution.
The movie that should never be remade? Annie Hall. Who else would you cast as the leads?
My favorite Cable Show memory: Getting free mints in that booth with the carpeting and the logos.
If I could tell my 21-year-old self something today, it would be… make sure the Flux Capacitor is working before heading back.
The TV show title that most resembles my life is… “Full House.” ?
