Video Interview with Starz’s Carmi Zlotnik


Carmi Zlotnik, the president of programming at Starz, talks to World Screen’s Anna Carugati about working with A-list creative talent, the value of returning series, the channel’s involvement with American Gods and what’s up next.

Since making a concerted push into original programming, Starz has differentiated itself in the premium pay-TV landscape with such series as Outlander, The Girlfriend Experience, Power, The White Queen and its follow-up, The White Princess. Among its most-recent high-profile successes is American Gods, the ultra-buzzy original series adapted from Neil Gaiman’s novel.

Indeed, Starz’s original programming has been a driving force of its subscriber growth (and retention) as of late.
