Daring, dramatic and just plain dish-y? Thanks to these two execs, NBCU Cable has it all. If Berwick has a favorite among her cable networks, she doesn’t let it show. She devotes equal time to each as she develops must-see content for Bravo Media, E! Entertainment, Oxygen Media and Universal Kids. She’s always adding content to satisfy viewers who want to be entertained in new and familiar ways as evidenced by “The People’s Choice Awards” return to TV on E! in November. It’s been said she’s on a first-name basis with her employees—quite a feat considering that she has about 600 people under her. Finding a voice in today’s saturated superhero market isn’t easy, so McCumber looked to the past to launch Syfy’s “Krypton,” the story of Superman’s grandfather. Otherwise, the exec has his eyes on the future as he continues to strengthen USA Network and Syfy with compelling content. He oversaw the expansion of Syfy Wire, the network’s news division, which has tripled in traffic during the last year and helps create viewer loyalty with hits including “12 Monkeys.”
