Without the distribution and sales efforts of Broussard and Manos, some “The Walking Dead” and “Portlandia” fans might be very unhappy. Broussard oversees multiplatform distribution of all AMC brands, which now include BBC America and BBC World News after he led the charge to acquire the channels. Manos continues to drive record sales, seeing a 15 percent overall upfront growth for AMC networks last year. Instead of relying solely on the popularity of the programming, Manos looks for integrated marketing opportunities that involve viewers, like the partnership between “Talking Dead” and Skype, or WEtv’s Princess Cruises Watch-and-Win sweepstakes.
