SVP, Original Programming, IFC

When it comes to turning out-there ideas into acclaimed series, DeMontreux has the Midas Touch. How else would you explain the transformation of the “Portlandia” web series or Marc Maron’s podcast into television gold? On the way for IFC are projects from funnymen Will Ferrell and Ben Stiller, among others. “From writing to casting to post-production, it’s a magical experience to see a show pitch come to life and to be a part of how it takes shape,” DeMontreux says.

What’s your favorite part of your job?
The creative process, for sure. From writing to casting to post-production, it’s a magical experience to see a show pitch come to life and to be a part of how it takes shape.
 
What’s been the biggest story in cable this year?
The ending of “Breaking Bad.” I don’t remember witnessing such universal sadness over the ending of a show before. And I myself am still in deep mourning.
 
Who would you want to swap jobs with for a month and why?

Marc Maron and hosting his podcast. He interviews the greatest artists of our time. It would be a dream to sit in his chair.
