Hammer is tireless when it comes to honing the portfolio of her NBCU Cable Entertainment Group. After making some changes in 2014 and 2015, she shook things up again earlier this year, grouping what she’s deeming the “entertainment networks” under USA chief Chris McCumber in the same way she grouped Lifestyle networks with Frances Berwick at the helm. She also is centralizing all scripted development under NBCU veteran Bill McGoldrick. We don’t know what other plans Hammer has up her sleeve but with her track record, we have no doubt they’ll be on point.
