Sapan has some of the industry’s sharpest eyes for programming, and AMC Nets saw another powerhouse year under his leadership. Aside from BBC America’s ratings and critical acclaim magnet “Killing Eve,” starring Sandra Oh—the network’s biggest-ever hit, WE tv’s new series “Love After Lockup” was the fastest-growing new cable series of the year and AMC launched a strong slate of new originals. The company also completed its acquisition of RLJ Entertainment, home to SVOD subscription video services Acorn TV and Urban Movie Channel.
