One Word that Best Describes Me: Curious
Sales and distribution go hand in hand, and with Collins and Broussard leading the charge, all of AMC’s networks are poised for another record-breaking year. In 2016, Broussard and his team expanded the company’s networks in the US and Canada; AMC and WE tv now reaches 91 million and 87 million homes, respectively, with BBC America closing the gap, among notable stats. Although those numbers, plus solid ratings, would seem to make Collins’ job a little bit easier, he and his team are always looking for new ways to draw interest from new and long-term advertisers alike. Be it custom content or product integration—like Hyundai cars in “The Walking Dead” or Sam Adams’ “sponsoring” the “50th season” of “Documentary Now!”—advertisers know their messages won’t go unnoticed.
