Juris joined WE tv as its president and general manager in 2013 and is credited with driving a period of growth and franchise creation at the network, which is home to shows such as Braxton Family Values, Bridezillas, Marriage Boot Camp, Growing Up Hip Hop and Love After Lockup.

Before WE tv, Juris oversaw the rebranding of CourtTV to truTV as its president, having previously served as president of Fuse Network, where he led its rebranding from MuchMusicUSA.

Earlier in his career, Juris was senior VP of original programming and later general manager of AMC, where he transitioned the network from ad-free to ad-supported.

“We first worked with Marc many years ago when he was running original programming for an early version of AMC and then became the general manager who took the network from ad-free to ad-supported, a move that fuelled much of the growth and distinction that was to follow,” said Josh Sapan, president and CEO of AMC Networks.

“His keen eye for brands and for compelling content have been demonstrated here and elsewhere. He’s recognised as a leader in our industry, and for good reason. We wish him nothing but the best as he departs to find his next opportunity,” added Sapan.

“Our industry is in the midst of profound change and transformation, but the elements that make a good story are universal. I believe in the power of storytelling and look forward to writing the next few chapters of my own, wherever that takes me,” said Juris.

AMC Networks is home to brands such as AMC, BBC America, IFC, SundanceTV and WE tv, while its streaming services include Acorn TV, Shudder, Sundance Now and UMC.
