If you have a network that starts with the letter “E” and seeks out what’s hot, cool or somewhere in between, look no further than Stotsky. Last year, the guy who had been skillfully heading up the rebrand of Style to Esquire Network—with a shift from a female to male demo to boot—expanded his role within NBCUniversal to also become GM at E! Entertainment where he launched scripted series “The Royals”—already picked up for a second season. And he’s also tasked with turning Internet sensation Grace Helbig into a megastar as she rolls out her show on E! this year. We’re not sure how many NBCU nets will eventually fall under Stotsky’s watch, but we’re sure whatever he takes on will benefit from his savvy mind.
