Since Nancy Dubuc assumed leadership of A+E Networks’ History in 2007, the network has experienced what can only be described as phenomenal growth, and now sits comfortably in the top five cablers in all key demographics and is the number one factual entertainment network in the U.S. according to Nielsen’s ranking of non-fiction cable nets (excluding sports nets).
Adding Lifetime Networks to her portfolio a year ago, she’s overseen a new slate for 2011-2012 that has tripled the network’s hours for unscripted programming. In a candid armchair interview with The Hollywood Reporter’s Lacey Rose at realscreen’s Factual Entertainment Forum in Santa Monica, Dubuc will share her thoughts on her plans for both networks as well as her big picture view of the factual entertainment industry as a whole.
The Factual Entertainment Forum hits Santa Monica on June 1 and 2, and includes the second annual Factual Entertainment Awards. For more information, click here.
