Linda Schupack

Aided by Schupack’s fan-centric marketing expertise, AMC has been home to some of cable’s top dramas in 2017—“The Walking Dead,” “Fear the Walking Dead, “Better Call Saul” and “Into the Badlands.” Thanks to Schupack, network programming scored big in a promo that dropped around the Super Bowl, high visibility at SXSW, and a warm welcome for “The Walking Dead’s” current Season 8 at Comic-Con. She’s also been hard at work marketing SundanceTV programming, and is behind a big front-facing campaign to support new series “Liar,” true-crime doc series “Cold Blooded: The Clutter Family Murders,” and the cable debut of Amazon Studio’s “Transparent.” Her choice for dinner companions is sure to keep her laughing: Amy Schumer and Samantha Bee.
