Sarah Barnett, AMC

Years in Industry: A lot

Education: BA, History of Art, University of Warwick

Together, these three supply the creative energy that powers AMC Networks’ brands and studios. Under Barnett, BBC America increased its commitment to nature content with the launch of micro-net Wonderstruck, a 24-hour weekly dive into our world. Juris led WE tv to incredibly strong ratings growth across all key demos, including a 7% increase among total viewers. Carroll has kept AMCN in the SVOD game, with its footprint passing 2 million across Acorn TV, Shudder, Sundance Now, and UMC (Urban Movie Channel). Looking globally, Carroll has made tremendous progress with the company’s SVOD efforts, launching Planet Horror in Spain.

The COVID-19 pandemic forever changed my perspective on: 
Fragility of routine.

Number of subscriptions to streaming services:
Many. I miss bundling!

When restaurants open back up, my first stop will be…
Gaskins, it’s perfect, upstate in Germantown

The first thing I’ll do when I’m back in the office is…
Beam at all of the people whose beautiful faces I’ve missed seeing in real life.

Working from home has taught me…
To be still.

Last show binged not on your networks:
“Better Things.” “Genius.”
