The Wit & Wisdom of Chris Albrecht

Starz CEO Chris Albrecht has been one of the most influential executives in television  for decades.

At HBO he developed such classic shows as OzThe Sopranos, The WireEntourage, and Six Feet Under, and at Starz he has brought Power, Ash vs Evil Dead, Outlander Blunt Talk, Black Sails, and more outstanding visions to audiences everywhere.

One of the keys to the success of Albrecht’s shows has been the writing. As a former literary agent (who once represented our Beloved Leader LB), he knows the good stuff when he reads it.

So when Albrecht speaks about his career, we, as writers aching to learn all we can, make it a point to listen. (So what if he was fired from HBO for an act of domestic abuse. Hey, it happened in Vegas, so, you know. Anyway:)
