Under DeBitetto’s leadership A+E Studios is thriving as an original content powerhouse, with programming flowing—sometimes simultaneously—across Buccieri’s networks and creating new audiences and revenue streams in its path. “Sons of Liberty” and “Houdini” hit big for History and “UnREAL,” the studio’s first wholly owned scripted series, sold in more than 100 territories. Upcoming miniseries event “Roots,” which will air on all A+E nets, continues the company’s winning strategy of multiplexing event programming.
