Nancy Dubuc

Title: President & CEO, A+E Networks

Years in Cable: 17

Education: BA, Boston University


The exponential growth of A+E Studios, creation of new linear net Viceland and significant international expansion are among recent achievements under the skillful watch of Dubuc. As head of domestic and global operations, she continues to innovate, building on its success across platforms and markets. Need proof? A+E TVE apps have been downloaded 41 million times. Additionally, A+E Studios’ first scripted series “UnREAL” became Lifetime’s youngest-skewing scripted show ever, and the network unveiled the Broad Focus initiative focused on supporting and developing female writers, producers and directors. Expect plenty more studio growth, including a project at ABC, and big buzz around a little miniseries event called “Roots.”
