My proudest professional achievement over the past 12 months is… Getting our productions back up and running in the midst of COVID-19. I have enormous respect for our teams, who were instrumental in making this happen.

How has the pandemic forever changed programming? It accelerated the adoption of a number of digital technologies, including streaming. This new normal with streaming and subtitles makes content accessible and easy to watch regardless of language, allowing shows to reach a new set of fans.

What show/movie hasn’t been rebooted that you wish would be? “¿Que Pasa, USA?” was a favorite of mine about a bilingual Cuban-American family. I would love to see a reboot of this Latino experience.
