When Hollywood powerhouses CBS and Lionsgate took over TV Guide Network in 2013, they put their faith in one man: Brad Schwartz. His mission was to transform the archaically-named net into something bigger, better and hyper-relevant. And in only a few short years, he has achieved that goal and more, putting the rebranded Pop on the TV map with buzzy mega-hit “Schitt’s Creek” as well as other innovative comedies and unscripted shows. These days, Schwartz is moving full steam ahead with more bold scripted bets like the upcoming “Flack” starring Academy Award-winner Anna Paquin. With Schwartz at the helm, Pop’s moment has come as this TV veteran takes it to new levels of success in the future. We’ll be watching.
