VP, Emerging Markets & Partnerships
TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies
It’s not often that a person’s job is a perfect fit for her personality – that’s why it’s been great to see Monica Neal’s rise through the Turner ranks. Her quest to find partnerships is perfect for her because there’s not a better partner in cable than Neal, who is one of the nicest and hardest-working execs in the business.

It’s not surprising that Neal’s handling outreach for the new George Lopez late-night talk show on TBS considering that she brokered successful marketing deals for Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns (TBS) and Hawthorne (TNT), both of which became hits.
