Why Them? Many cable executives dream about the kind of quality portfolio that Broussard and Manos possess. In addition to a series that consistently outpaces broadcast networks in 18-49 ratings (“The Walking Dead”), the duo touts Emmy- and Golden Globe-laden series like “Mad Men” and “Breaking Bad.” And few series get more online buzz than “The Killing.” The cheerful veteran Manos also pushes the fact that Mad Men attracts more viewers with average incomes exceeding $100K/year, prompting some to call it cable’s most affluent series. And Broussard’s ace in the hole isn’t bad: AMC owns TV rights to “The Godfather.” Armed heavily with this stable of quality programming goods, we’re guessing Manos and Broussard make many an offer that cable operators can’t refuse.
