Co-Founder, Partner and Executive Producer, Lucky 8 TV

Holub has been busy this year; he’s executive produced four different shows and a documentary special. From A&E’s #1 show “60 Days In” to “Kids BBQ Championship” on Food Network, he knows how to develop successful programming. Lucky 8 TV is in good hands with Holub, who co-founded the company and is its partner and executive producer. Prior to co-founding Lucky 8, Holub was a producer at Nat Geo where he helped created and served as supervising producer on the network’s hit franchise, the Emmy-nominated Brain Games. His successful habits are “being flexible and quick to adapt to a given situation.”

What is the one habit that makes you most successful?

For me, being flexible and quick to adapt to a given situation are essential for success. This industry is always in a wonderful state of flux, and it’s crucial to always have a plan B, C, and D in your back pocket for when things don’t go quite the way you imagined. It’s rarely “plan A” that ends up winning for you.

What sort of culture is important to you in the workplace?

I believe a collaborative and respectful culture is key for the best workplace environment. When everyone knows the organization has their back and that they can feel empowered to come forward with new (sometimes crazy) ideas, that’s when the best and most creative work gets done.

What is the most exciting thing about working in this industry?

Being part of this industry at a time of so much change is incredibly exciting. Knowing that in five years we could be producing forms of media we’ve barely heard of today is a reason to wake up in the morning and to keep looking for ways to push the envelope.
