Caserta excels at innovative multiplatform initiatives and partnerships, and shaping IFC’s overall brand identity. Count these as two key contributors to IFC’s banner 2017. The net again received two Emmy noms for “Portlandia” and “Documentary Now!,” making it the only network to receive two nominations in this category for two consecutive years. New comedy “Brockmire” was the highest-rated new series in IFC history, and IFC renewed its exclusive agreement to telecast the Film Independent Spirit Awards in the US through 2020. Caserta has a balanced formula for stress relief: “20 minutes of Transcendental Meditation followed by listening to Howard Stern every morning on the train into work.”
Who is your favorite current female TV character and why?
Pamela Adlon as Sam Fox in “Better Things.” She is flawed, funny and real.
What famous woman, living or deceased, would you like to have dinner with?
I’d love to have dinner with Lucille Ball. I was obsessed with repeats of “I Love Lucy” as a kid. Her comic style and physical performance was sheer genius. And…she was a red headed hottie.
Best advice for relieving stress?
20 minutes of Transcendental Meditation followed by listening to Howard Stern every morning on the train into work.
